Just a few of my favorite VINTAGE treasures..................

    Hi....      to every one out there in blog land that like all things vintage. Thank you to the Colorado Lady for having a place where we can all visit and see each others treasures.  Above is a picture of a set of glasses and pitcher that is 125 years old.  It has had a special place in my home because my late Mother In Law gave it to me many years ago.  The next picture is a old silver set that belonged to one of my Aunts.and became a treasured item to me.

I made the china doll 25 years ago, not quite vintage yet, but some day my grandchildren will know that a grandma 100 years ago made it. for them.   ( I hope some one one day will think a china doll is cool )
     Also above another way I use old family pictures to decorate.    The pictures on each side of the rose picture are of my Mother when when was a wee little girl, the others are my grandparents.  

  I am trying to get back in to the blogging circle but sometimes fell like no one out there knows I am here.  I will try to get more involved and hope to become a part of a wonderful group of people who I so enjoy.

  2. I enjoyed each thing you featured today. The little doll is the cutest. Do not be discourages with blogging. It helps me make it through the day. However, I do not have anyone but me at home, so I have more time to devote to it. When you have a family it could not be easy. The more you visit and comment, the better exposure, and more visits in return.
