A vintage ice cream bucket

1923 Ice Cream maker

I have been searching high and low for a antique ice cream maker. So happy to say “ I found one”. Check out that gorgeous blue color with all the parts intact. Better yet…….it works.

Junk hunting with this cutie

I had a fabulous lunch date with my granddaughter and we went to an antique shop afterwards. It’s never to early to take your grand children junk hunting with you. We were enjoying all the cool stuff when I seen the ice cream maker on the floor. Wait, what? Yes, it was on the floor. I couldn’t believe it. I checked out the price tag and scooped it up.

I will be searching for the perfect faux flowers to put in this amazing find, so it can hang out on my dining room table.

Made in U.S.A., Pat. June 12, 1923

Stay tuned for an update after it is filled with faux flowers.

Swooning over spring!

Antique European ticking fabric

Spring is just weeks away, yet it’s not soon enough. We had our first major snow storm with 14 1/2 inches of snow, so we are ready for for warmer days and sunshine. With that said I have been craving French fabrics. Hence, my happy mail.

Angel wings from vintage European grain sack

I have been busy working on angel wings, bunnies and more hearts!

Pocket heart bunnies. They are the cutest little piece of spring, just what I needed.

Front garden in spring

I will leave you with this warm weather spring pic of our garden last year. This pic just screams spring and warm weather is ahead. So for now I will continue to sew with vinyl fabrics and paint old chippy furniture until it’s warm and sunny!

Oh February…

It’s February and I have been busy. Here is what I have been up to with creating new hearts.

A heart created with a vintage scapular

My love of old and unusual led me to these vintage catholic relic pieces in an amazing antique shop in Delaware, Ohio. I have had them tucked away waiting for the perfect project.

Time worn vintage assemblage hearts

These vintage tiny pieces are so amazing. The stories they could tell. Now someone can enjoy them all over again in a beautiful way.

Oh my, the detail…

I have used black and white felt, gold embroidery floss and glass beads. Embellished with the vintage pieces. I could create these over and over.

Amazing crochet work on this tiny vintage piece

Sprinkle in a couple of tiny bags made from antique European grain sacks.

I have been busy, doing what I love……creating!

February is upon us!

Vintage lace & Antique European Grain Sack Hearts

No surprise that I’m still making hearts. February is almost here! I have antique European grain sacks and vintage lace so it’s time to melt the two together.

I went thrifting a few days ago and I can’t pass up vintage milk glass. This vase is perfect to hold hand made hearts.

Which one is your fav?

Really, which one is your favorite? I know mine! Perfect hearts to tuck your favorite valentine in.

Cutter quilt hearts too…

I’ve been busy with all kinds of hearts. Another vintage cutter quilt that needed to be repurposed. I will be using this cutter quilt for more projects too. The outer edges of this quilt deteriorated and crumbled. Such a sad sight, but the inner panels of the quilt are gorgeous and so colorful.

Can’t wait to show you what else I do with them. Stay tuned.

Hearts!

Oh February, you are so much fun. Stay tuned.

Hearts! ❤️

Antique European grain sack heart

I have been busy this week making hearts from antique European grain sack scraps. I’ll be honest I love making hearts. So when I came across these antique scraps from grain sacks I had to use it. All different sizes, different vintage cloth and you have tons of sweet hearts!

I had an old flour sack that was torn and an old buck shot bag, that became hearts and a little hanging sack.

An old buck shot bag, turned into a little hanging sack.

This week I will be working on more pocket hearts made from old cutter quilts. I can’t wait!

Smaller hanging hearts

Have a fabulous week. Thank you for stopping by!

Hearts, hearts and more hearts.

Peace, love and junk,

Merry, merry

Vintage Shiny Brite tree

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Hand drawn Santa Ornament

So I was playing with some plan wood cutouts and an oil Sharpie. Santa ornaments were created.

The Man in the Moon

Had to make a Man in the Moon ornament too. Who can resist this guy? Not me! All that’s left to do is, drill a hole in the top and add a jut hanger. Complete…add to the tree!

Thread spool trees and a vintage door knob tree

Vintage tread spool trees are the perfect hostess gift for the holidays. I have them all throughout the house. They are irresistible! Add a vintage doorknob tree and you are all set. I collect doorknobs all year long to create these adorable gifts!

Vintage spools make adorable trees!

I purchased these adorable vintage spools because they looked like little Christmas trees. They are the sweetest.

Grain sack trees

Lots of news this year, love creating unique trees out of vintage finds.

Thank you for checking in. Lots of things happening here in my vintage world and looking forward to new ventures. Happy New Year!
