Sewing, Decorating and Coffee Talk

EDIT: I just wanted to let Miss 1941 of http://miss1941.blogspot.com/ know that I've been totally visiting your blog but have been unable to leave a comment (Some blogs with comments embedded in the page aren't letting me leave comments)! :( Didn't want you to think I haven't been returning your visits!

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine and I went to a yard sale at one of my favorite vintage-y places, Sleepy Poet Antique Mall. Of course, I couldn't leave without visiting my most favorite vendor, Kitsch-y Cool Vintage. (If you're ever in the area, you have to go to Sleepy Poet and Kitsch-y Cool....you also have to call me so I can go with you. LOL ;) Here's a little bit of what I found:

Some decorating books from the 1950s:

Some patterns (these are actually from a thrift store we went to later):

And this awesome Pyrex coffee pot, complete with burner/warmer:

I actually got a fabulous 50s day dress as well from Kitsch-y Cool but I will save that for another post if I can get the courage to do some pics. lol ;) And that's it for my newest finds. What about you? What are you finding where you live?

  4. I am in love with the decorating ideas you found. I really dig the coffee pot as well! You seem to find the best vintage stuff. I am a collector of this era as well, and I wish I could magically take me back to that time so I could have cocktail hour as well :)

  8. I've been having that trouble with a couple of blogs lately too Maggi, it does make you feel bad when you can't comment and hope that people don't think they just aren't getting visitors.

    I do adore that coffee jug, yummy of yum yums!

  9. The coffee pot is divine! I'm afraid I haven't done much shopping - my money seems to need diversion elsewhere! But I love seeing your treasures!

  11. Gorgeous stuff. I can't wait to see your pic--somehow I like the stuff I wear but I never know how to find the cool sort of vintage but awesome things that others are so good at. Plus I'm totally intimidated at those kinds of stores--I feel like they're gonna take one look at me and be all, "TO THE GAP WITH YE, WENCH!" Well, maybe not wench. Who says wench?

  12. I love the books, and the patterns! I always think I should start collecting old books and patterns, but I never seem to run into anything good that would make me start a collection... oh well, one day...

  13. What a fun blog! I hope to learn to sew on day! I received a sewing machine for Christmas but still haven't learned how to use it! :(

    Thanks for helping me celebrate my SITS day on Monday!
