Sunday Smile: vintage swag

a gathering of my yard sale swag over the weekend

I didn't do much in the way of yard sales this weekend, but I did visit a lovely one on Friday (see last blog post) & picked up some delightful vintage lovelies to bring home. I also went to a really big one north of Lakefield, but left with only a few tasty vintage morsels. It's not a huge gathering, but it is a perfect one. They sat real pretty on my shelf!

And, that, ladies & gents, made me smile. :)
p.s. I added this post to a wonderful Flea Market Finds linky list at Her Library Adventures! Fun spot to visit...

    I agree, the kittycat's eyes make for an eerie shot - eerie cute, that is!

  10. Hello spectacularfairywren!
    I used my trusty old Canon S3IS (nothing fancy, but fancier than some). It's all about angles & macro for me! Then I vintage-ify them using Photoscape (free photo editor) - specifically, I use the Film Effect filters.

    Thank you re. my blog header design! The floral piece was created using a photo of a vintage '70s couch I had. :)


hello! Thank you for taking the time to say a little something; I do appreciate reading your thoughts & ideas. ♥
