Vintage Goodness

I went to Queen of Hearts Antiques and Interiors in Buford GA today, and came home with a few things.  I've been wanting a sewing machine drawer for a long time, but those I've found are expensive.  Until today.... I found this simple vintage drawer for $12.00.

After cleaning it, I dry brushed it with white acrylic paint.  This let part of the dark color show through.  Once it dried, I sanded it in a few places.  I also added this applique.

This is what it looks like now.

Ah, much better!

I placed some tissue paper inside, and filled it with pumpkins.

I'm loving it!

I also bought some vintage clothespins.  They were 10 for $2.00.  I put them in a jar and placed them in the laundry room.

I broke one of my favorite cloches this morning.

Guess what I found at the Antique store?
A new cloche for $4.00.

This one is heavier and of thicker glass.  I like the swirl pattern.  

It sits on my dresser now, but will get moved I'm sure.  

For $18.00 I have a vintage sewing machine drawer, a cloche, and 10 clothespins! I think that's a great price.

One other little note....I started on my Christmas shopping today too.  So I had a really good day, right by myself.
