I went out yesterday and ran around a little bit after an appointment. One stop was the Hallmark store - because I wanted to get free new adhesive gift wrap ( I got 2 free!) with a coupon I had, and save an additional $4 with another coupon. I also got the pretty striped box (special value 1/2 price!) in the background above with the pretty pink ribbon and flower. look how gorgeous it looks with this vintage card I got in the mail yesterday afternoon (from eBay). Wowza on those colors, huh?
From the same seller, I had also purchased this vintage Disneyland postcard folder (below), so I scanned it here with my castle pin I bought when we were there. I'm sorry you can't tell in my scan how sparkly it is - studded with rhinestones. See how Sleeping Beauty's Castle looks in the picture from the 60's? It is more colorful now, and very pretty.
. (See? More like it looks on the pin.)
I also made it to one thrift store and found this bag. I know it's not very old, but I couldn't resist it's spangles of mother of pearl or shell. They match a little shell pendant I have had since I was quite young.
I had hoped to find an old frame I had seen on my last visit that I realized after I got home was the perfect size to frame this lovely 1928 bathing beauty, below. Ain't she sweet? The frame was still there! For $1.00. Yippee!
I was happy with my little outing.
