my vintage love

My beautiful little lap top has a virus.  So things here have been a little slow.  My hub finally came home tonight and has time to fix it though.  Hopefully!  So for now, I am using the big computer that we usually send our kids to.  And it also has none of my pic’s on it.

So I have decided to share with you something that I have recently started collecting.  Vintage tin recipe boxes.

I am just drawn to the graphics found on most of these.  And the colors.  They remind me of some of my favorite fabrics!

These tins are made even more fun to collect by a favorite manufacturer.  One is Avon.  Many are Ohio Art.  Yup, the toy manufacturer.  They diversified.

These pictures are all from Etsy.  There are some really special ones on there.  It is the best place to browse and find that perfect little bit of vintage that you long for.

Some of these recipe boxes are even made more special if they happen to come along with the recipe cards.  I love to see the personal notes, like “Grandpa’s Favorite”, “Delicious”, “Made for Judith’s Wedding”.  They turn a simple box into a treasure.

What is your vintage love?

I still have some a lot of unpacking to do from The Tattered House show this past Sunday.  My sewing room is such a mess.  So sorry, but I have no pictures of that!

What I will show you is this blanket.

When I first saw this fabric my heart skipped a beat!  I even looked around to see if there was anyone else ready to grab it just as I was reaching out for it.

I just love all of these colors together.  It is sweet without being overly sweet, if you know what I mean.

The flower print is vintage as is the nubby chenille on the back.  And the blanket is sized perfectly to fit over baby in the carseat or stroller so momma doesn’t have to struggle with folding over a big blanket that is just too big.  I know… I am so thoughtful :)
