Sweet Mama and Sweet Vintage Finds!

My sweet mama is here to visit! My dear dad gave her airline tickets for Mother's Day. We have been having the best time together, as we always do.
We went to our favorite antique malls and came home with some lovely things.
I found some wonderful vintage buttons on their original cards and a gorgeous deco Easter card.
I adore this super sweet vintage apron! I can't imagine that any lady would ever wear a gorgeous apron like this to actually cook in.
I assume they must have just worn ones this pretty when they were entertaining?Here are some close ups of the lovely embroidery work.So pretty!!! I love the colors! I also found these darling pink and green potholders and the green enamelware bowl they are in.
Another sweet card. I love calling cards. They are always so pretty! The gorgeous sparkling buttons were too beautiful to pass up.
I'm off now to have some more fun with my dear mama. Have a lovely day girls!!!

Happy Mother's Day!
Happy Mother's Day, sweet friends!
Here is what I sent my sweet Mama for Mother's Day. Lace, flowers,vintage papers, some sparkling jewelry bits, and a lovely seashell.
I also sent her this pretty tote bag,
and some beautiful vintage wallpapers!
And here's what my sweeties gave me for Mother's Day. Sweet vintage bluebird sheet music,gorgeous rhinestones pieces,
and these beautiful wallpapers and a wonderful old Ledger book!
How could they find such amazing things? Well, they know shopping for vintage goodies is my favorite thing to do, so they let me go shopping and pick out my own presents! They also made me some very sweet home made cards and presents. My boys are so very sweet!!! I am so blessed!!!
Here are a few more peeks of the corner of my bedroom that I'm trying to make into a little studio space.
Looking at these pretties just make me feel happy!
And it really makes me want to create something. I can't wait to alter the ledger book to make an art journal!
I hope you girls have all have a wonderful Mother's Day!!!
