Vintage Thingie Thursday: Vintage Fabric Scraps & Ironic Twist

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a "dog-gone" good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies being showed that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.

This week, I want to share with you some of my vintage fabric squares I received from my shameful begging from THIS post. I have to say, I have been amazed at the generosity and different fabric scraps that have come my way. It has been so much fun, I can not say that enough. (Please click the photos to make them bigger and see the details on the fabrics.)

Here are some of the vintage fabric scraps that were sent to me by a blogging friend. I was so excited to discover this package of vintage gems. I love the blue fabric with the little bird and the brown fabric in the middle, very 1960's.

Here are some more from the same package. Look  at that vintage Mickey and Minnie fabric...oh, what treasures! All so different and oh, so special.

On Sunday evening, my Aunt LaVoice came over and brought me a sack of fabric scraps from her sweet little neighbor who lives across the street. Her name is Joyce, and we have known her for many, many years. Bless her heart, Joyce was sweet enough to send me some of her fabric scraps for my quilt. These are some of the prints she sent me. ALL vintage treasures. Just look at that adorable red fabric with the black is so sweet....just like Joyce herself! But the real swatch to pay attention to is the one at the top.

On Monday, the postman delivered six packages to me from blogging friends from near and afar. I received 3 from out of the country and 3 from the USA. I was so excited I did not pay too close attention to what fabric came from which envelope......all I could think of was cutting them into 2 inch squares. I soon discovered this scrap of fabric in the pile I was cutting...I stopped....looked at it and thought, "I have seen this before"....then I remembered where.

What are the chances do you suppose of having a friend donate a true vintage fabric to your project and the very NEXT day, get the same pattern which happens to be the VINTAGE REPRODUCTION FABRIC to the very same project. I could not believe it.

I believe things happen for a reason, but I am still amazed by this. I have received hundreds of different prints, all different and then this like print happens to come to me. Amazing I say. And....if this print was in your envelope....please let me know.....I really want to take note of who sent this fabric. I have the envelopes separated from the others that I received on Monday....but I want to be sure. Excitement sometimes does get the best of me.

Now the question I pose to you is you think I should sew these together as they are in the quilt, side by side, or do you think I should mix them up in the 4000 plus different fabrics in the quilt? What are your thoughts.

It is ironic how things come together sometimes, and this project is no exception. I have more very special stories to share about this quilt project and the fabric that has been sent to make this project a reality. Those stories will be coming in the future, I hope you will be interested in reading them.

Have a great Vintage Thingie Thursday everyone and a wonderful weekend.

Take Me Back Tuesday: Texas Rangers and The World Series

Our Texas Rangers are going to the World Series....if you are from the DFW area, that is about the biggest thing right now next to sliced bread. Seriously. For the last week, these Texas Ranger fans have been on a baseball high like I have never seen. Proof of that came this past weekend when the lines for official American League Championship gear far exceeded the Cabbage Patch doll craze of the 1970's.

It was totally ridiculous...the mob of people waiting in excessive lines, the attitudes, the frantic store clerks and personnel trying to take charge of the crowds was at an all time high, we just left and went home. You would have thought Nolan Ryan himself was at the front of the line personally handing them out and then autographing them right on the spot. This type of frenzy is usually reserved for Black Friday sales....not for a Saturday afternoon in October.

Along with all the media coverage and the general excitement from almost everyone you meet about this once in a lifetime event coming, do I dare say less than 10 miles from my house in a couple of days....The World Series....less than 10 miles from my house......did you catch that????

....along with all of that, came memories from when the kids were smaller and we spent lots of time at the "old" Ranger Stadium. These were times long before even the concept of a World Series and the Rangers playing in it were even a mere thought. Remembering back to those days, brings a since of what true baseball has always been about....a smaller stadium, no real security at the park, just a simple baseball game with fans who enjoyed the game.

I remember taking my kids to the "old" stadium in the afternoons, when there was batting practice, or pitching practice. We were able to sit right on the front rows and watch the players practice up close and personal. I don't even know if you can do that now, but back then it was a big deal. I know for sure you could not get as close to the field or players in the new stadium as we could in the old one. That was a special place back when my kids were younger.

My son got his Ranger hat autographed from several players at these practices, the hat is still here in his closet....baseballs were dropped in my lap by players more than once when practice was over, we still have those too and more times than not, the player would also sign the ball for us before they left the field. Thinking back, that seems like such a long time ago, a much simpler time for sure.

We spent lots of time at the Ranger Stadium watching games, birthday parties, and taking family who was visiting from out of town. I remember it being a lot less expensive than it is today....the news said tonight that there were a few tickets left for game 3 of the World the rate of $800.00. Nose Bleed Seats. Certainly not the lower level seating we were used to all those years ago.

But aside from the cost being so much less....we certainly have lots of memories of spending family time at the baseball games so close to home. For my daughter, the food staple was always nachos and a coke, my son and husband, hot dogs and beer for my husband and coke for my son. Consequently, my son thought we could not leave the park without cotton candy and for me...well, I always wanted the roasted peanuts. Classic baseball food....always tasted best in the stands.

Every young boy my sons age during that time claimed Nolan Ryan as their hero. We certainly remember the games well when he was pitching. I have lots of photos of Nolan Ryan on the mound, wish I would have had the camera I have now back then...the pictures most likely be that much better. Over the years, we have collected signed baseballs, baseball cards, t-shirts, newspaper clippings.....the kind of things that went with the frenzy of the Nolan Ryan dynasty and the Texas Rangers. Today, it is a much more dramatized and media hyped frenzy with the World Series coming here...but it seems so fitting that the Hero who Pitched for the Texas Rangers back then, is still a part of this great organization and this once in a lifetime wonder.

My son has tickets to the World Series and I think my husband is going with him. Another great opportunity for a father and son to make a new memory, living the reality of Ranger baseball on a whole new level...the largest playing field for baseball of all time....less than 10 miles from my house. The World Series.....unbelievable.

Vintage Thingie Thursday : More Vintage Dachshunds

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a "dog-gone" good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies being showed that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.

It is always touching when other let you know they think of you. That happened to me a couple of weeks ago when my friend stopped off at my house one afternoon with a little surprise. Her and her husband had been out of town celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary and while browsing some antique places, she came across this little spotted dachshund and purchased it for me. I was so touched and thrilled to add this sweet puppy to my collection of dachshund things. Patti, thank you again, I will treasure this as I do our friendship.

Look at his sweet face and all those adorable spots! I just love it. I think this is a cracker server, but it would also serve well as a olive tray or cheese tray too....only problem is, if it loves cheese the way my three "real" pups do, the cheese might not last too long!

This little pup is a ring holder. One afternoon my daughter and I were at a local Goodwill looking around and I snatched this up right away. This reminds me of my Sophie!! When we went up to pay, there was a young guy checking people at the register and another young guy helping him bag.....

.....when he picked this up to ring it up, he looked at it and sorta laughed and nudged the guy who was helping him bag things....I told him to not laugh at my little dog!!! He just looked and smiled....most likely thought what is that "Hot" girl going with this crazy women........I love it and this was a real bargain for 50 cents.

I found this cute little skunk recently as well at Goodwill. That day, there was a lot of old souvenir items on the shelves, from plates, salt and pepper shakers, little boxes and little animals. I think this little skunk was one of those from the collection that ended up on the shelves of GW. The sticker was worn off, but it is still stamped Japan on the bottom. I felt bad leaving this cute little figurine behind, so it came home too and sits on the shelf in my laundry room. There is always room in my house for orphans of all kinds!

Happy Vintage Thingie Thursday everyone. I hope your day is filled with love and laughter and wonderful fall weather wherever you may be.

Take Me Back Tuesday: The Road Traveled

Finding your place in this world and being relatively happy where ever that place may be is often not as easy as it should be. My mind has wondered about that very thing over the past few weeks.

As an adult I sometimes question the road that I have traveled to this spot on my road map. I lately often wonder if I missed an important detour or ignored warning signs along the way that would have lead me on a different path. How do you know for sure you are where you were meant to be when so many questions come to mind?

As a child growing into young adulthood we have dreams and hopes. One wrong road leaves us on a trail that most likely we wished we would have never traveled at one point or another. Some folks I know have the capability of recognizing what the wrong move was and move on to greater things via a different route. I seriously know someone who has that unbelievable insight and they never cease to amaze me. They stumble and like a cat, always end up on their feet. It is amazing. It is admirable. On the other hand, there are some that take the wrong path and just continue keeping on keeping on.....never really knowing how to pull onto the right road or make the right decisions to get them to the place they want to be.

These are two extremes I know, but I often wonder where I fit into this scenario because I know I am not one to always land on my feet and often feel like I fit more into the wondering in the wrong path scenario.

I am not saying that all aspects of ones life fit into this thought process, but I have found that unresolved things from ones life, even if they have remained hidden for years, surface again in adulthood just like a winding road that leads back to the starting point.

These things, at least for me have been the most difficult to address, especially after so many years. They may not be anything in particular, but under the surface, there are underlying issues that cause your feelings and thoughts to process things a certain way, often feeling misunderstood by many. Left alone on a path not traveled.

That leads me to think about the Serenity Prayer and wonder if for most of my life that has worked in a negative thing for me or others.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change" ......I know some who don't accept things as they are....they change their course and pull towards a goal. I know some things can not be changed, but I wonder if a lot of things could have been changed if the effort was made to do so.

"courage to change the things I can"......this is interesting to me because I think some, myself included at times do not have the guts to make a change even if the outcome would be for the better. You can not change others, only yourself. But getting past the hurt and pain that others cause, to do so is not as easy as it may sound.

"and the wisdom to know the difference".........that is the key I think. The wisdom part of this is important, along with the ability of letting go of hurts and disappointments that have held us back for most of our lives. Much easier said than done.

This take me back Tuesday, has me thinking about the starting point in my life. I often wonder if it was all detours and wrong ways that brought me to where I am today, or if I followed the planned route. I can think of several things that bring peace in knowing I was exactly where I was supposed to be at that given place in time.

Then, I think of what could have or should have been done differently, and wonder if it was my lacking that brought me to a certain point, or someone else that caused a pileup on the road and caused me to veer off the path for a short amount of time.

I know it is easier to cast the blame else where, but sometimes I wonder.....I tend to let others dictate my own dreams and goals......"the wisdom to know the difference" acknowledge, accept, to forget, move forward and get right back on the trail that leads to the horizon. That is the path we all should try and stay will lead each of us to the right place at the right point in time we were meant to be.

Begging And Giving!!!

OK....I admit it....I have stooped to begging!
But along with the begging, there is something in it for you as well.....a GIVEAWAY!!!

Here is the story:

A few weeks ago, I met my swap partner for the Brown Bag Quilt contest and she had made a quilt using 2 inch squares.....I knew I had to make myself one of these quilts, it was love at first sight so to speak. Uses up lots of scraps and I wanted to finish it by next summer. Tall order I guess.

Well, to make a long story short, I need 4096 pieces (2" pieces) or more for a King size problem.....

After raiding my stash and scrap bin I have managed to only sew together 614 pieces and that is everything I have. I have used almost all different fabrics but as you can see, this project has become rather daunting. I am not even a quarter of the way with what I need.

I decided I'd use my blog to BEG for donations to this project. I don't need large pieces, only enough to cut a 2" square. The fabric could be mailed in an envelope one piece or several.

Don't worry about cutting the squares, I'll do that myself...just need a small piece. * Fabric used in this quilt is cotton fabric, fabrics suitable for quilting,  just plain ole good ole cotton!

The Giveaway:

I am offering a $20.00 gift card from Walmart or JC Pennys (winner's choice) for this giveaway. I will keep all envelopes and draw from the envelopes received, so be sure your name is either on the envelope or inside. For every 300 different fabric swatches I receive, I will add another $20.00 gift card to the pot, up to $100.00. So there are five chances to win one of these cards for a small donation of a small scrap or scraps of fabrics.

Leave me a comment and let me know you plan to enter...if you advertise on your blog about this giveaway, facebook it or tweet, let me know and I will add your name in the pot two more times.

Surely, with all the quilters and crafters out there in blog land, I should be able to get a little closer to my goal with this giveaway. And someone will get a little help with their upcoming holiday shopping!

All entries mailed to:
Begging quilt project
c/o Suzanne
729 Winnie St.
Ft. Worth, Tx 76112

This will run until November 5, 2010, I will draw and announce the winner(s) on November 6, 2010. Good Luck....and thanks in advance for allowing me to beg for help!!

Vintage Thingie Thursday: When Vintage Comes Knocking At The Door

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a "dog-gone" good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies being showed that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.

Yes, if you are wondering about the title of this really does happen.....come knocking at the door that is. You see, I have a neighbor who shall we say, in all the 20 something years I have known him has maybe worked a total of 6 months during that time frame. He lives in his grandparents house (who were marvelous neighbors while they were still with us) mainly because his mother who lives in Florida, would rather him be here instead of Florida. He lives there for free, all bills paid and does basically nothing.

 A couple of weekends ago, he had a "garage sale" which was just basically a bunch of fact, I had given him two large garbage sacks of stuff I was going to donate and let him have it to sell. As expected, not too many things he had out to sell actually sold, most of my stuff did sell however. This past weekend was the 3rd weekend in a row he set up shop in the front yard and I am guessing he sold nothing.......thus the knock at my door Sunday afternoon.

I looked out the window, and saw him standing at the door with two sacks in hand....I reluctantly opened the door to see what he wanted. I was sure he wanted to borrow some money and just hate it when he does that. He had two sacks in his hand and asked what I thought this stuff was worth.....( In other words, did I want to buy them ) I asked him where he got them, and he said he found them in a cabinet at the house.....the grandparents house, so I am sure this must have belonged to his grandmother or possibly his great grandmother. He holds no attachment to any thing he owns. So sad.

These were dirty, and grimy and I am sure they had not seen the light of day in many, many years. I told him I had no idea what they would be worth and was he selling them? He could not get his asking price out of his mouth fast enough..."Ten bucks"......I told him I did not know if I had $10.00 on me, let me go see. I did, and he gave me the items and grabbed the 10 one dollar bills and took off happy as could be.

Immediately, I went and ran a sink full of hot soapy water and sprayed them with a degreaser agent to clean them up. This cake plate is super heavy, I asked him did he not have the lid for it and he acted like he had no clue what I was even talking about, which I am sure he did not. But on careful inspection, I don't think this ever had a cover, it stands 6 1/2 inches tall and is smaller than the ones they sell today, I feel sure this is several years old.

This was the piece that really caught my eye. It looked to be a serving plate of some kind, I told my husband I felt like it maybe dated back to the 30's or 40's due to the thickness of the glass and the design. I really loved this piece, it is trimmed in gold and for the most part, it is in excellent condition. I felt like this was worth the $10.00 I paid alone. I really loved it, and it cleaned up to look like new.

Upon searching online, I learned that this is a cookie or pastry server and they date from the 1920's and 1930's. I found some that were similar to mine, but not as detailed as this one is. These were used to serve cookies or pastries along with tea to guest who stopped by for an afternoon tea and a visit. Since I have no idea the maker, or the brand I really could not put a value on this piece, but I love it and will treasure it thinking it might have belonged to my sweet neighbor who was a wonderful little lady.

Here is a closeup of the handle, that is what made me think it was rather old. Very detailed and ornate. I just love it! So yes my friends...Vintage does have a way of finding me when I really am not looking for it! Got to love that!!

Have a great weekend and enjoy this great fall weather! See you next week!!

Do You Ever????

Do you ever have one of these days when all you want to do is just lay down and rest the afternoon away......well.....I am having one today.....and I can not do it!

I wonder if Dora realizes how lucky she is this afternoon to be able to do just that??

And for the record, no assistance was given in covering up this pup, she does it all by herself...all the time! She is a snuggle bear!!

Vintage Thingie Thursday: Vintage Planters

Welcome everyone to Vintage Thingies Thursday. If you have a love for vintage things, have come to the right place. We have a "dog-gone" good time each and every week!!!
If you are new to this party, please take the time to
read and follow the instructions for participating in Vintage Thingies Thursday, click HERE. I try and keep things fairly simple, so please make sure you follow the instructions. Please only ONE link per week. Lastly, if you link in, LINK back to my blog, so everyone can see all of the vintage goodies being showed that day. If you don't link back here, they won't know who to visit......thanks so much.

This week, I want to show you a few of the vintage planters I have picked up lately because I had to have them, or because they were too cute to leave behind. Don't you just love it when that happens??

This one is a McCoy. I paid $1.00 for it at Goodwill. It does have a hairline crack down the back of the planter, but it no way takes away from the pretty front. I love the pink and green on this one.

This little bird planter is a recent find at a charity sale. It is marked Japan on the bottom and I think it was a great find for 50 cents.

Anything with puppies on it always catches my eye. This was so sweet, I just had to bring it home.

And talk about sweet, this one is a real charmer. I don't plant any plants in these, I just like to keep them on a shelf and look at them. Some of the ones I have may be worth more than others, but for the  most part, I love them all and enjoy them all the same.

Bailey decided she'd get in on the act too.....she has a look on her face like, "What about me" I had to tell her she was a baby and far from being vintage.....but was loved just the same if not more!!! She seemed to accept that answer and was wagging her tail once again!

Have a great Vintage Thingie Thursday and a wonderful weekend ahead. I'll see you all next week with more vintage treasures!

A Dress And A Memory

This time of year holds lots of memories from when my kids were young. The planning of Halloween costumes was always a highlight to the fall season. I usually made their costumes. During the years of trick or treating I made a wide variety of costumes, from Barbie, scarecrow, Dracula, witch and an Indian costume that was hand beaded. I really enjoyed making their costumes when they were little.

My children went to Catholic school, and there was always a need for a costume during those years too. Whether it be a saints costume or a ethnic project costume, even a history project costume, we always had fun designing what they were going to wear and making it come to life. My son one year was a army general for a history project and needed a costume. That one was the most challenging. But with several trips to a Army Navy store, for patches, and a shirt from GW, I was able to send him off to school looking pretty much like a the general he was supposed to be.

In high school, my daughter always needed costumes for homecoming week. If it was for spirit dress or twin day, it was always fun to try and come up with an original outfit for her during these school days. Every day was a themed day, and well, that usually meant coming up with something special to wear. It was the one week that no uniforms were worn to school, so you can imagine how important it was to come up with the perfect outfit....good times for sure.

This past weekend, my daughter was home and going to the Texas/OU and the State Fair. She was ever so subtle at dropping hints that she wanted a dress to wear to the festivities. She described how the dress was made and felt sure I could make it. Sight unseen, no idea what she was talking about we bought the stuff and headed home for mom to make it happen.

Luckily, she had a picture of what she wanted, and being out of practice on constructing a outfit without a pattern, I dug my heals in and went to work. It was simple enough once I figured out how to construct the dress. She liked the finished product....thank goodness.

But sewing late into the night, sure brought back lots of memories of staying up late to finish costumes for my kids when they were small. I had forgotten how that was until this past weekend when I felt it important to get it right and not disappoint my daughter, I mean it had been years since she had asked me to make her anything at all, so it had to be right. I put a lot of pressure on myself....silly I know because Alisha did not doubt me one about taking me back several years.

I guess by now you recognize this post at Take Me Back Tuesday, which is exactly what happened this past weekend, My daughters request, sure took me back to the days when they were small and was able to enjoy sewing outfits for them for special occasions. This was a fun reminder of those days, and most important the fact my daughter knew without a doubt I'd be able to pull it off...even after all the years that had past since I had last done it..good stuff!
