This week’s finds are pretty much everything this girl needs to have a very happy week of thrifting.
I love flowers so this vintage linen Wild Irish Flower tea towel was a no doubter. I’d love to frame it someday, when I find the perfect frame for it.
And these vintage Pimpernel floral coasters are so pretty. They came in the original box.
And this girl can never have enough vintage music for projects.
And I’m always in the mood to rescue an antique book, even if it’s old and tattered.
Especially if it’s having a bad repair day, and it’s only $1.
These books need me, and I’m afraid no one else will take them home.
They deserve to still exist in this world… tape or no tape.
I love it when old books are signed. Too bad there’s no date though.
Newton Grange is a former mining town in Midlothian, Scotland. It’s now home to the National Mining Museum.
This book has no publishing date but my online research tells me that the author Allan Cunningham lived from 1784 to 1842, but this book also shows up with a date of 1859.
Either way it’s very, very old, and most definitely a keeper.
Like these vintage tools, which this girl can never have enough of… pliers and wrenches and…
drill bits… oh my!
They all make this girl’s heart happy. The drill bits are so sculptural!
It’s hard to tell in the pic but the bits range from about 8 to 10 inches in length. I actually have 12 but one was camera shy.
And doesn’t every girl need a vintage hand drill?
Well you definitely do if you have a collection of vintage drill bits.
Not sure if this girl needs these or not, but I can’t resist rusty iron thingies.
These look like some kind of yoke or carrying device, or maybe part of some kind of harness. Honestly, I’m really not sure what they are.
Any ideas? What would you use them for?
Thanks so much for reading, and until next time… keep on keepin’ on.
