Retro Floral Aprons

 This fun apron hails from the 1960s, is in perfect condition, and is trimmed with piping. The sky blue floral print is complete cheer.
 This longer ditsy floral apron is probably from the '70s. Note the lacy pocket and ruffle--very Little House on the Prairie.
The rickrack and funky diamond floral date this apron to the '50s. It also features an interesting coiled plastic one-size-fits-all waistband. Perfect for whipping the apron on and off!

Finnegan's Market

 Last Saturday I went to Finnegan's Market in Hudson, Quebec. It is a pleasantly sized, nicely situated, laid back outdoor antique and craft market. Bonus: the town of Hudson is stunningly quaint.
 I found this gorgeous ceiling medallion and plan on painting it white to touch up the scuffed bits. It only cost $10! Instead of gluing it to my ceiling I am going to hang it on my wall.
 This $1 vintage travel sticker was my favourite out of a binder full of them. The doughy chef makes me chuckle.
 At the last booth I was looking at I saw this bundle of vintage sewing patterns in a box under the table and whipped it out. It cost $3! I adore the illustrations! More for my collection!
 This sweet tag was under the patterns. I'm not sure what it was for--Bridge, maybe? If you know, let me know!
 I also got these lovely saucers in a mismatched bin for $2 each.
 Finally, this $20 apple crate has wonderful texture and graphics, and a woody smell!
 I highly recommend making a trip to Finnegan's!

Recent Thrift: Metal Ornaments

I found this switch plate and these metal ornaments at an architectural salvage store. I'm thinking of painting the ornaments (letting some of the metal ridges show through) to use with pretty knobs on furniture.
