Vintage finds I love!

I found these treasures at my local second hand shop.  Such a great feeling to rediscover the joy of finding them again once you arrive home and unwrap the crisp butchers paper... and wonder where your new love will be placed in your home!

three gorgeous vintage books, one of them from 1920!
a sweet pale pink vintage teapot made in New Zealand
a floral 3 piece tea set
This bamboo table was in its natural state and the top covered in fabric.  I removed the fabric and spray painted it white. Only one coat has been done here, one more to go and maybe a new fabric cover...
A divine white lace tablecloth that appears unused - for $30!
this vintage french lace (from the 1940's the tag said).  I LOVE it.  I could dedicate a whole post to this lace, its beauty  and its possibilities!  It sits in the girls' room atop their tallboy for all to admire.
happy treasure hunting everyone!

  1. Ah, Denise! Utter loveliness. The vintage French lace is my pick. Heavenly. You know, I have never gone 'thrifting' and seeing this makes me think I should start! J x

  2. This is a treasure trove indeed!

    My personal favourites from would be the pink tea/coffee pot and the table, a lovely combination for sure.

  5. Denise, you have a great thrifters eye. Beautiful things here. The only thing better than a good find is a good haul - I also love the pink coffee pot.
