Summer Scoops

Gosh, I guess I've taken a summer hiatus from blogging.  But the time away from the computer has been well spent.  Lots of fun with our children outside, and small trips to the flea markets and thrift stores.
These are some recent finds along the way...

Vintage seam binding in soft blue and champage gold:

Adorable embroidered teacup and vintage doilies:

Sleek white gloves from the past...

This vintage china doll was such a great find from Ebay.  I love how she is half completed.  You can guess I've got plans for her....

I've got plans for many of these lovely treasures, but for now the summer beckons.
Hope you're enjoying some fun flea markets in the great outdoors!

these are fantastic finds! And go so beautifully with your home. I love that delicate blue shade, now that we know we're having a boy, I'm paying more attention to blue :)

We really don't have outside flea markets here in the desert, so I treasure hunt while I'm visiting back east as often as I can.

Your post makes me want to hop a plane and visit home! Love all of your recent finds.

Great finds. Sounds like your spending your summer the right way. I love summers just for the fact that it makes you slow down and reconnect with our families which is sometimes hard to do with school and actities going on. Enjoy the rest of your summer.
