My mom owned an antique shop in San Francisco, called Thelma Dangerfield's. Collecting and a love for vintage is in my blood. There is nothing like finding a good treasure! I am a daughter, wife, mom, cook,Substitute teacher, Girl Scout Leader and I love to entertain.

I have been going through the boxes of products and vintage goodies that I did not sell at my first vendor show. If you remember, I didn't sell much at all. Including these little cherub candle holders. I think I was asking $3 for the pair.
I love my new off-white runner I found at Goodwill. It was $2.99. How about these ribbons? They are currently at Michael's for $2. They had other colors as well. I also bought one in pink. But, today I am going white and off-white.
I added some of the ribbon to my Cherubs and my old creamer. Everything is very subtle...
I like this monotone look. My next project, perhaps this summer, is to paint my living room. I think I like the color of this table runner. Maybe I'll go with that.
Here you can see the baubles on my little cherub...
I like this neutral Valentine's Day look. My red polka dot mugs are back in the hutch.
I recently found these curtains at Goodwill as well....I knew it was a mistake, number one...there are four. I have three windows. Not two. I just couldn't resist. They were $2.99 a panel. I have washed them and ironed them.
They were handmade curtains, and she/he used a lot of fabric. The red and white stripes cover half the back of the curtains. Oh, the things I could make if I could sew...or had a machine. That's my garage sale goal this year. I see machines all the time. So I am getting one this summer! I'd make a table runner, a pillow for the bench at my table, little stuffed heart pillows, maybe some valances for the kitchen.....what else could I make? Do you like this fabric as much as me??
