My Cool Vintage Finds!!


Oh my goodness I have been doing some thrifting and I got some real super cool things and deals!! This very old Mans Suiting Handmade Quilt came from an estate sale. The lady who was selling her Fathers Estate said her Father was 100 and his Mother lived to 101!! I am not sure how old this quilt is but I knew I had to get it. I was kinda freakin cuz I only had $9.00 on me!! She told me she wanted $10.00. So I saw some yarn and 2 chalkboards I wanted too. I put it all together and asked if she would take $9.00 for it all. She told me cuz I had the yarn in there too she would!! LOL I got this quilt cuz I loved it and also to keep me warm this winter if the power goes out!! It is like it was made for my vintage living room!! That is my big girl Teddy Bear I got as a gift a few years ago!! I just Love it and my new orange fur throw. I got that with the money I made off my "JUNQUE GIRL DOLL" I sold to my friend.

Oh my gosh have you seen the new Milano Pumpkin Spice Cookies? Yummo!!
This is my granny square coffee cup cozy I had my sweet girl Holly from make up for me and a matching coaster!! It matches my living room so good. Don't you just love spoiling yourself? And if you don't do it you should!!! Cuz you deserve it!! Took me awhile but all my kids are grown up now so I can and do.
This is my Funky Witch Doll that I got in The Thumb of Michigan at a craft show. She's really cool and has a little purse and the bottom of an old oil lamp. The pillow is from my Secret Sister from church last year. I just love it.


In this corner of my living room I just added a crow to my fur cape and put a sunflower in my Moms old orange vase with some real peacock feathers and dried found cat tales from the side of the road. I love being in this room. This room has alot of family things. I added some granny afghans and got some new rugs. I love all of it.

And I also wanted to share my 6 vintage coats I got from the thrift store and one from a yard sale. I went to the thrift store on half off the entire store day last month and got 5 of these and the brown suede one Sim and I got at a sale. I got all of them for $9.50!! I have added it up a few times and I can't believe it either!! LOL I will be making critters and some cool funky things from them. They are worn and missing buttons on some but oh how I love them!!!

And these are my new gigs I am making! Once again this is my own design and all hand sewed. I have SOLD one already and the others are available. I will be making more and have a new design all drawn out for something else for Christmas!! My Shoppe link
 Christmas will be here soon!! Oh my goodness!!
Keep on Keepin On!!
Peace  Out!!
XOXO Love Fran.
