VTT


I have a few cutesy items to share here that I got at antique/thrift shops this past weekend.

First is the tiny pair of salt and pepper shakers that I forgot to post yesterday. They're not even 2 inches/5 cm tall!
A pretty table runner/dresser scarf.
I absolutely couldn't leave this dishtowel in the store! I can just imagine the poor woman who embroidered it saying, "I'm a happy housewife, I'm a happy housewife, I'm a happy housewife . . . "! I wonder if she ever convinced herself?

I'd love to show more stuff, but will wait until next week!

Love the happy happy housewife!

That towel is priceless! It would take more than a towel to convince me. Like a dishwasher. I'd definitely be convinced if I had a dishwasher. Unfortunately I AM the dishwasher!

Looks like an overwhelmed housewife to me!

Seeing your kitchen may end up costing me a lot of money, even with my thrifty buys. I've got the vintage red fever.
