A friend of mine just launched her newest blog all about feeding that Vintage Addiction. The name of the blog is My Vintage Addiction. She designed the blog herself and I love the colors and the use of some really cool fonts. ( I love fun fonts). You can check it out here .
In honor of her website launch I thought I would show off my newest thrift store find.
Yesterday my mom came over and took me to brunch at one of my favorite diner food restaurants. (Did I mention how cool my mom is. Her two favorite cd's right now are Lady Gaga's The Fame and Gwen Stefani's Sweet Escape). We decided to go thrift store-ing. We hit two thrift stores and scored some choice items. I am in the midst of redoing my craft area and storage is always a problem. Well I picked up some of those tins like the ones you get cookies in at Christmas. I am going to decoupage and or paint them (tutorial in the works). I also picked up some books for the kids and a few stray craft supplies. My big score was the pic on the right. I found the pic on the left for my daughter at a thrift store over 6 months ago for $3.00 or $4.00. I got the second one yesterday for $1.00. I will need to try and match up a frame for the second one.
The are named left one, Gigi and the right one Mimi. Both by Sherle. I am going to have to do research to see if there are any others out there. Anyway I hope you enjoy and if you have an addiction with vintage items like me be sure to check out the My Vintage Addiction
EDIT: Just googled to see what I could find. There are three more so far. One named Penny of a girl with a guitar and two of boys kind of the same Harlequin, pastel style.
