Vintage Thingie Thursday!


Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday Everyone! Please go over to Coloradoladys Blog to see more fabulous finds by Vintage Thingie Lovers from everywhere in Blogland! :) You'll make new friends - I promise!


Yikes! A whole week has gone by! That is pretty incredible!!! I'm running around like a madwoman trying to get all packed up for the weekend... I'm heading to Baltimore for my college reunion. I must say... I really need a break. So in honor of my girls weekend coming up ... this week's VTT will be some girly stuff!

Everyone needs at least a couple ( I have like a dozen ) super girly, beaded vintage evening bags...which I never use. But I must have them. I have more at home...but here are a few I have for sale in the store. The blue one is really adorable...come to think of it... do I have a blue one? :)


And what, I ask you, is more girly than a vanity? This pieces was a mess when I got it in, and now of course is the most talked about piece in the store! I'm really excited about how its looking. I will need to do an update shot for next week.


For now, just try to visualize this vanity mirror floating above the vanity...and of course ignore the paint cans and drop cloth. Gotta love the creative process!

Have a wonderful Thursday! Filled with Vintage Love!

Waaaa, I wanna visit your store!
LOVE the blue bag, reminds me I do a nice beaded blue on-I think I'll pull it out who says they are just for evening!?

Really nice! The handbags are interesting to me. I once had a vintage one - shaped rectangular, and each side opened so you could see completely through it when both sides were opened at the same time! There was a compartment for lipstick, change, and cigarettes and lighter - and it even had a little flat handle - too cute! Nice post today!

Such a pretty bag. I don't have any bags, but I might need to take your advice...every girl needs one! Great post today...that vanity is a real gem.

Susan said...

Love what you've done to the vanity.

Vintage evening bags are fun...I have to admit to having a few myself! That vanity is going to be gorgeous. Can't wait to see the finished product.

One can never have too many evening bags! . . . or vanities!

Bea said...

I adore vintage purses. My first post to VTT was about my vintage purses that I use often.

I just MUST have a vanity in my bedroom when we redo. They bring back such happy memories of me sitting at the ones my grandmas had. Can't wait to see yours when it is refinished.

Enjoy your girls' weekend!
