I am the lucky new owner of quite a few vintage items this week! As I mentioned on Monday, Alex was in Traverse City Michigan for the Iceman Cometh Challenge (while I got busy painting without permission- which I will follow up on later this week). Anyway, my hubby was such a sweetheart and brought me home a couple unexpected presents!
While in Traverse City, he spotted this vintage Ironing Board and Croquet Set at an antique shop and snatched them up to surprise me!
I was sooooo GEEKED! Especially because I just saw an antique ironing board at Bachman's Fall Idea House used as a sofa table.
Not completely sure if I will do the same thing with the board. I might have to see what it looks like in a couple rooms!
Oh yea, I totally scored with that DEALY-O!
My second find were these vintage embroidered pillowcases. I thought they were beautiful and ooozed a vintage/ handmade feel. Plus, they were only $0.99 each! I couldn't pass them up!
Now I need to go play with my new 'toys' and figure out where they should go! Along with washing, bleaching, and ironing the bedspread and pillowcases (a must for used textiles of course).
What do you think of the goods????
What would you do with the vintage ironing board & croquet set???
