Vintage Thingie Thursday






I went to a Thrift store a few days ago and found these goodies! I also am including a photo of one of my very favorites items in my kitchen. My grandma had these type of cookie jars when I was little! This was brand new, but I painted the lid and added the meyercord vintage decal, so I think it counts as "Vintage! Also, look for a new "vintage" look to my blog in the not too near future! :)

If you hadn't let the cat out of the bag, I would have thought the cookie jar was vintage. Very sweet.

I love all of the old seam binding and rick rack! I always pick that stuff up when I see it at garage sales or thrift stores. And that jar is adorable! Looks vintage to me!
Happy VTT!

I love all kinds of sewing stuff. It's so fun to collect them. I'm just getting around to visiting the VTT blogs. It's always so fun to see what everyone is sharing.

If you want to call it vintage, it's vintage. And it does look it. Thanks for sharing!
Living it up at Lakewood,

I love how you added the decal and painted the lid. I would never have thought to do that. Now I'll be searching for perfect decals.
Thank you! I'm inspired!

I remember when decals were popular. The one on your jar does look vintage.

I remember mom putting rick rack on our dresses when we were little - - - and on curtain edges too.
