Vintage Black Friday, Flea Market Finds

With only two Vintage Black Fridays left,
I still have a lot of images to share.

These are a few that I grouped in my Living Room
resting on my antique embroidered velvet crazy quilt.
All these items were found at flea markets this last year.

Even this Bible and crucifix from the 1930's.

This lovely depiction of Jesus is the one exception.
 I found it at Inspirational Home here in Springfield.
Which reminds me, that next week I will be showcasing
Inspirational Home for their Christmas Open House.

My husband got me started with my fascination with daguerreotypes a few years ago. I don't have many but I love that they are remembrances carried with loved ones.

And since it's almost Thanksgiving I thought I'd add
a black and white image of a vintage post card.


Time is about to run out for Vintage Black Friday.
If you haven't joined in yet please head to
Gypsy Brocante and say Hello to Jill.

And look at the wonderful surprise I received
 from The Gypsy herself!

She put together an incredible assortment of
vintage goodies to make a wonderful art piece!

Can't wait to get started.
Thank you Jill, for your sweet gift!

Don't you just adore this black and white tissue paper?
It's just the beginning of the wonderful goodies.

Darling cabinet card, doilie, black buttons, lace...

vintage bingo card, dictionary pages, key, silver spoon handle...
Oh my goodness. It's all wonderful!

Have a wonderful Friday,
full of Vintage Fun!

  4. Hi Debra:
