Vintage Monday - Retreat Finds

Now that I'm back from my wonderfully fun retreat....I'm trying to get on with my normal routine. That's always the hardest part for me after getting back from any trip.
Of course any kind of trip just wouldn't be right to me if there wasn't a stop or two for treasure hunting.
We stopped on the way there and also on the way back.
I found a few things to add to my vintage collecting habit.

Look at this sweet vintage hat! I love the velvety roses and the netting.

This one looks very spring like....again, love the velvet ribbon. So vintagey! ( I know, it's my favorite made up word)
If your interested in seeing the other hats in my collection you can check them. Just click on the tab that says" Vintage Monday" at the top of my blog.


I also found 2 embroidered tablecloths. They have embroidery in all 4 corners....



I have more of vintage linens than anything of my collections, but I just can't ever seem to pass them up.


Looky here! A cute little booklet on crochet pot holders. I just love it...especially the red and white ones. Someday in all of my spare time, I'll just whip up a few! LOL
Here are a few pages for your viewing pleasure......









Again, if you havn't seen my quite large collection of vintage pot holders, check them out on my Vintage Monday posts.
I did buy a few more treasures which I will show you over the next few weeks.
Today I'm off to Quilts Etc. for a Block of the Month class and then on to a luncheon with my Dear Jane group. Afterwards, we will be going on a fieldtrip to Broadbents in Lehi. They have finished thier Dear Jane quilt and have it on display. (of course photos will follow)....
Have a great day my friends!

Lucky you - so many nice finds. I love looking for and rescueing old embroidery. I think of the person who made it and how they put time into making something to make their home pretty.
