Fathers Day Treasures

This was my splurge!

I love this skirt from around 1890.

The print is charming and I like the way the hem was
backed with sweet little fabric.

I was so happy to find the black vintage seam binding tape,
since I am running low on this color.

The thimbles are brass and of course I like
the red band on them.

Keys are always a nice addition to my ever growing collection.

Now this is fun!

This must have been a towel at one time, that someone
cleverly made into a hairstyling cape.

The little embroidered hairpins give it away.

These adorable pictures tucked at my heartstrings!

Maybe I will copy them as hangtags for my dolls.

I have been searching for a little metal stool
for one of my topiaries.

This one fits the bill perfectly.

I love this little carved wooden piece.

Whatever this is meant to be, I don't know.

It is all hand carved and about 6" tall with a hole
at the top.

I think it is a candle holder.

Whatever it is, I am using it to make a wonderful MAKE-DO.

I hope you enjoyed my treasures.

God bless,


  1. Evi, I love your treasures, I want to go shopping with you...looks like you have an inside scoop on the good stuff!!! A make do on the wooden piece would be awesome! Me and Lady Sapphira are relaxing and take time to get acquainted...... I love her! Thank you so much!

  3. Evie the vintage skirt fabric is wonderful. Do you only collect vintage bias? I have a box full that I would like to sell to a crafter. Have a great weekend. HUGS MARY
