Our Vintage finds

Our Days are definitely becoming hotter. Spring is around the corner. This weekend we ventured off to our vintage market. The girls went shopping and our treasures were gathered. There is something special about a market. Its out of doors and friendly. I managed to find an old vintage pram for Olivia. As gorgeous as it is I am going to give it a make over with new floral fabric. Olivia is getting a baby Waldorf doll for her birthday and the preparation for its arrival is so exciting. I found some lovely old tins to add to my old farm style kitchen.

The tins are lovely. How lucky Olivia is to receive a waldorf doll. I am planning to start making some soon.
The rock candy we started got poured down the drain. The only thing it grew was mold so we will try that one out again in summer

What beautiful treasures you have found Suzanne!
How *lovely* a Waldorf dolly is going to be an addition to your home! I would love to know where you are finding him/her we are quite in love with Waldorf dolls at our house! By the way, I was taking photos the other day and then also wanted to take photos of your garland at the same time, I posted my photos and forgot a little friend of yours made it into the shots : ) I think you would enjoy seeing your sweet friend here at my home! I have an email in the works, I have been so behind... Many blessings to you as your days are warming up!!

Hi Nichole

I have the treasure finding bug. If its not aprons, market bags books, wool and fabric, now it is tins. I discovered one of my tins can be sold for tripple the price. Not that I am selling, but good to know I am investing....

Our little Waldorf baby is coming from an Etsy seller called dragonflyshollow. There are many to choose from. I will mail you a favourite dolly etsy shop that I am positive you will like.

My little friend looks right at home in America...

Warm regards

Dear Suzanne,
I just wanted to let you know how much I have been enjoying your heartfelt comments on my blog. They truly brighten my day! Thank you so much for taking the time to share in the conversation.

Hello dear Suzanne
You certainly have an eye for vintage treasures. That market looks like a wonderful place to visit. Your tins are so interesting.

Best wishes

I don't want to ruin your experience...but from my own personal experience I know that if you don't do anything about the rust on that stroller, it will keep getting worse and eating away at the metal. It's horrible stuff. It should be sanded with steel wool mesh and dried off completely and then repainted...I mean, if you want it to last a long time.

But if you choose not to, that's alright also. :0) Blessings~

Hi Renee

Its always wonderful for me to find like minded friends. I think its wonderful that we can share in each others lives positively.

Hi Kelly friend

Thank you. I think If I could find myself amoungst your England markets, I would get truly lost in heaven....

Hi Jenn

Thank you so much for the advice. I do want to fully revamp and I will use the wire wool. I will show you the finished product when it is ready.

Thank you

Hi there Lisa

Thank you for popping in. I have done an awful amount of treasure hunting lately. I think it helped get me through the Winter....

Have a great day
