Coolest Illustration of the Week

I thrifted some books lately....well I do that almost every other day.....This book called "Decorating with Color" by Carleton Varney has these hand drawn pictures with cool color combinations, it was printed in 1972. The above was one of my faves because of the pastel feel.

I worked on my booth in Quitman Georgia "Very Vintage Antiques" Carolyn Taylor is the owner and is doing a fantastic job getting the former furniture store ready to open.

More and more people are bargain hunting and it is a great time to start if you haven't. My husband calls it a down turn economy. I like that phrase, anyway now is a great time to thrift, even fashion is driven by the "Vintage Look". My teenage daughters wear a T-Shirt from Goodwill at least 3 times a week. I have gotten the hunt down to a fine art. I can pick them out, wash them and they wear them the next day.
Take Care,

Christmas Card Fun and Frivolity

I love old timey Christmas Card graphics. Old-Timey
adj. Having aesthetic or intrinsic characteristics that bring to mind things that are generally old-fashioned.

I found some today for just 75 cents and had fun looking at them. I decided to scan them.

All Things Fish

We went to the Atlanta Aquarium last weekend. It was spectacular. We bought tickets online and parked at the CNN Center and walked over through Centennial Park. It was a breezy sunny weekend. No thrifting was done so I will have to do some catching up.

Thrift Finds

I have been finding some really fun things lately. I just love treasure hunts. I am going to have a both in Quitman Georgia soon. It will be a vintage/antique mall type set up. I am looking forward to it.
