Vintage Thrifts

Jenny, a friend that I have known for about a decade has an eye for finding the most wonderful vintage lovelies. She collects them, restores them and paints them. Then has an open house, in her own home once a year open to the public.
So, in a need for some balancing, (and some goodies), Oscar and I headed up to the mountains.
We found this lovely square quilt, not a vintage, but sewn with some vintage fabric. I couldn't pass this up, this will fit in perfectly with my new work space. (more on that later)

vintage planes

Oscar found these 2 vintage airplanes he could not live without. And the metal embroidery hoops are going to make great holiday gifts.

I just fell in love with this table cloth. It's so simple, I could not pass it up!

spider flower

The flowers above are some that I picked up from the Farmers Market. They are called spider chrysanthemums, I've never seen anything like them before. They are the most beautiful, hardy, delicate flower. I bought a bunch of these and split them up to have in different places of the house. So, I have beauty everywhere I look, almost everywhere.

Hope you had beauty surrounding you this weekend as well!
Happy Monday!
