I had these pictures ready to go for this weeks post...the continuation of my laundry room remodel. I will have one more post about the vintage items in this room, it will be next week. So for now....here we go....
These are some of my vintage linens, I just love the colors and the cute little chickens. These were all estate sale finds.
This salt and pepper shaker set belonged to my grandmother. I have kept these safe in a drawer for many, many years. I decided to bring them out and enjoy them, I put vintage buttons in each, and it sits on the shelf....now, I can enjoy them.
This is a real gem. I have had this ever since I was a little girl. My Aunt Joyce had one similar to this, it was the same type of thing...a Weather Forecaster. After a visit with my Aunt, I looked for one myself...and found this one. (At least, I think that is how I aquired this...my Aunt may have given it to me, but honestly, it has been so long...I can not remember) OH MY.......I guess that is a sign I am getting OLD! Nonetheless, it still works, and I have treasured it for many years...and girls...it is ALWAYS right!
Here is the back of the little weather forecaster. I would guess I got this in the mid 1970's. I wish I could remember how I got this...but for the life of me...I can't. So if my Aunt or mom reads this...Leave a comment if you remember!!! Don't you just love it??? Have you ever seen one like this, that actually works? Do you have one similar??
Here is a snapshot of the wall all my goodies are displayed on. The little shelf was purchased at an estate sale, I asked the guy, "how much?" he said "$1.00", I said "sold". It was brown and ugly, but I saw how sweet this would be painted a fresh coat of white paint. I think it holds all of these vintage treasures rather nicely.
Here is the whole wall. The vintage wall picture was purchased at an estate sale. I love the colors of the flowers and the mountains in the background. The little plates on the top of the shelf came from Goodwill. I liked the size of them, they were small and had really nice scenes painted on them.
Well, that is it for the show and tell this week. I will finish up next week and show the whole thing...with the before shot......Have a great week everyone..... I hope you enjoyed looking at some of these vintage goodies...some you may have seen before, but I think most of them are new.....
