More Thrift Shop Finds

WHO keeps trolling the thrift stores looking for wonderful vintage things?
That would be me.
And often, my searching pays off - like when I found these cute little owl crewel-stitched pictures:
 I spotted this super-cool candle holder at the Habitat For Humanity ReStore:
And I found a sweet little tablecloth with Scandinavian dancers (by Inger) and a small tile trivet there, as well:
I've also picked up wooden embroidery hoops, bright floral fabric, and two nice vintage baskets to hold casserole dishes:
I found this vintage ceramic panther with rhinestone eyes:
And these two cute little gals:
An old piece of sheet music with fabulous artwork on the front - "The Midnight Fire Alarm March and Two-Step":
Another vintage coffee mug:
And I found a great vintage Whitman book. I don't have too many of these that are based on old television series, and I am always delighted to find another.
 I loved Mission: Impossible, and I used to watch it all the time.
Pictured on the cover are Barbara Bain and Martin Landau at the top, and below them are Peter Lupus, Peter Graves, and Greg Morris.
I was glad to add this one to my collection.
I also found the cutest vintage kerchief, seen below.
 I don't think too many people wear these anymore, but I like them.
 You could always sport one on a bad hair day, or when you're riding in a convertible, perhaps?
 This is sure a pretty one:
And I'm always finding cute vintage patterns - here are some for summer, two for bathing suits:
 And one for a pretty long dress:
Oh - and I "thrifted" a pair of green moccasins with beading - my very first pair of Minnetonkas:
That's it for today!

The Queen still wears head scarves! And I always say, if it's good enough for her, it's good enough for me!

My mom has a pair of the black cats. She said they are from the early 50's. I use my moccasins to decorate with in the Fall. They are a thrifted pair, too - but too small for my feet. Dog-gone it!
