Another Motto Print & Some Other Vintage Finds..





A few posts ago I wrote about a shelf that I found at a garage sale and painted white. On the side is the vintage red ladder that I hang my vintage towels from. Well....on top of the shelf are some of my favorite vintage finds. The Motto print that is shown has all of the colors that I love to have in my kitchen. I also bought it from Deb, my friend that made the Vogart pillow for me. She has a booth at Antique Avenue, a fabulous antique mall in Manteca, California. The Motto print goes great with a vintage toleware flower piece...and the flowers even match. I bought the toleware piece at Summer Cottage in Petaluma, California. If you ever have a chance to go there, do it! The store is FULL of all kinds of great things. Infact, the owner, Michelle, has been featured in Romantic Homes magazine. FiFi at Chez Fifi wrote the article on Michelle. (small world, isn't it?)

Next to the motto is a vintage red metal toy phone. I have seen one similar to it before, however it was 46.00 at an antique store....yikes! So, one day I found this one on eBay and won it for under 10.00..shipping included.

The white enamelware canister I also bought on eBay years ago from a seller Asentimentaljourney. They sell wonderful vintage things, and often times sell as Buy It Nows so you don't have to fuss with an auction.

Ya'll have a great day and thank you for stopping by!

Dear Becky,
How Funny this is. . . I found your blog through someone else's (foursistersinacottage Amy, I THINK) and I really love it. stop in every day. Well, turns out that I am asentimentljourney on eBay, and yeppers, I recognize that canister for sure. There is another seller (spelled the way you spelled it * mine is missing the A) but they don't sell the same as I do, how funny is THAT??! Anyway, love your blog and your posts are wonderful. Stop by our website or, better yet, we're having a big ol' eBay garage sale for the month of August so check it out if you have a moment.
