Flea Market Finds after an exhausting day!

Today I spent the entire day at school for a giant fundraiser!  I am about ready to crawl into a heap and watch mindless television until bedtime but I do have some treasures to share from last weekend.  I also have some treasures that Mum brought along when she came to visit.

First off, some really great vintage sheets!  Woo hoo!

And this sweet little bowl.  It speaks to me of restaurant ware but I love it for it's straightforward simplicity.  It was a mere 50 cents.  Total treasure!

Mum's treasures are all bits and pieces of my Nanna's and Great-Gramma's.  Vintage recipe booklets to add to my collection of such items.  So cool.  Who doesn't need to have a vintage Betty Crocker Bisquick recipe booklet?

And a small catalogue from a nursery from the 1940s!  To think that it has survived in such great shape is a testament to my family's great pack ratty-ness!  And check out the Simplicity Pattern Preview from the 40s?  Oh my goodness, those nipped in waists are to die for!

Have a super lovely evening!  Hopefully I will find my sewing machine tomorrow and get some quality quilting in!

Linking up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds and Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday!
