Estate sale whites

I got several things at an estate sale this past weekend. These are the white or actually yellowed vintage, white items. This sweet old food cover has chenille and paper insects on it.
I got two of the these bars of laundry soap so I can give one to my sister-in-law who is decorating her laundry room with vintage things. The hankies, lace, and collar were very pretty and so cheap. My favorite is this delicate little circle of lace and ribbon flowers pinned to it's card. There is a message written on the back. It says, "I bot this in 1918 to use at the top front of my slip. Mom". I love that!
Join me over at Faded Charm for all the White Wednesday posts and have a wonderful Wednesday!!

  8. Hi Angela, I did go to Hobby Lobby because of an earlier comment you had made, and Holy Cow, you were right. Christmas right where we left it 12 months ago! I couldn't bring myself to pay full price, darn they have the worst sales, but I will be checking back! Thanks for visiting. Have a lovely weekend! E

  11. Hi Angela,
    What wonderful whites you found at the Estate Sale. The soap will be perfect for a vintage look in the laundry room and I'm a sucker for any and all old lace. To find the note on the back of that circle of lace/ribbons was bonus!!


Comments make me happy!!
