Vintage Monday is now Vintage Cool

Anyway that’s a regular reader here knows that Monday sometimes comes and goes without a Vintage Monday feature. Sometimes I guess I get a case of the Mondays on Awesome Avenue 😉

And this is a shame, because there are a lot of great posts in the pool – so I’ve decided to turn my flakiness into a positive, and without further ado.

Vintage Monday is now VINTAGE COOL.

Vintage isn’t just for Monday anymore, folks. And without further ado:

Thrifted vintage fabric

I’d love to try a sampler on that fabric but I don’t think I’d dare! It’s gorgeous. Thanks for sharing this, sewingobsessed!

More fabric spotted in the pool:

Love the yellow roses! Thanks, Morning By Morning2010!

Vintage Monday: Duck Pond

I just think that this lovingly-stitched duck pond is beautiful:

Thank you, Rachel Lazenby, for sharing your nana’s work!

Vintage Monday: In the Pool Today

I meant to blog for Vintage Monday yesterday, but it didn’t happen. I think I need to branch out beyond Monday.

Anyway, this popped into the pool today:

Bottom half

It’s a Smokey bedspread. You know, “Only you can prevent forest fires”.

Digital Misfit also posted some fabric details. I’m a sucker for birds, and just love this:


Thanks to Digital Misfit for sharing this one!

Vintage Monday: It’s My Blog and I can Post when I want to…

Sorry for the delay. Yesterday was just really busy, so I didn’t get to share this:

The Water Bug--Vintage Sheet Music Cover--Offbeat

Isn’t this funny? I play piano so this caught my eye – with vintage sheet music they sure paid a lot of attention to the cover, and this is just so fun.

Thanks to finsbry for sharing this!

Vintage Monday: Crewel Bird

We’ve had a lot of great submissions lately in the Vintage Monday pool. So many, that this week I’m featuring two:

Crewel Owl Needlework Picture - Vintage

I love owls, so you know I love this crewel little owl. Thanks to TipsyTimeMachine for submitting this one – she’s got a lot of great vintage goodies in her pool.

This one comes courtesy of The Woman in the Woods, who has contributed a lot of fun vintage greeting cards to the pool. This is one of my favorites, a West German card from the 50s:

1950s Greeting Card - West German

I inherited several vintage greeting cards from my grandmother, and this reminds me of something she might have owned.

I’ve been working squares all weekend, and hope to post my weekend’s work soon!

Vintage Monday: Choc-Ola Crate

Not only do I really like this crate, but I like how it’s being used:

That’s a good use of some vintage – thanks for sharing, Olivia! We’ve had a lot of great additions to the Vintage Monday pool – go check it out!

Vintage Monday: Buttons, Glorious Buttons

Sometimes, I just like to gaze upon some buttons, particularly those of the vintage persuasion:

Ah, I feel refreshed. Thank you, andrea creates, for posting these to the Vintage Monday pool!

Vintage Monday: New York Coffee

OK, I know it’s not Monday and frankly I should probably rename this feature and just post when I feel like it. I’ve neglected my Vintage Monday group, but over the past few weeks there have been a few new photos posted to the pool, so go visit and check it out.

I love this plate:

I’m a coffee addict, so it definitely appealed to me this morning.

Delayed Vintage Love and Slightly Early Blog Love

First off, I apologize for the Vintage Love delay. Last week was the holidays, and this week there was a death in the family (BHE’s granny), so we have been traveling. But without further ado I would like to direct you to some Vintage Love from gracefulfig-on hold. Isn’t this gorgeous?

Also, getting back into the swing of things with 2010, I’ve got to pass out some blog love, don’t I? I’d like to pass it on to Wee Folk Art. This site helped me out fairly recently, as (though I did not directly use the pattern) their Stacking Bird Applique Block led to my stitching up this little felt birdie brooch for my mother-in-law:

Orange and White Birdie Brooch

Wee Folk Art is a mother/daughter team that doesn’t just offer up a blog so much as a crafty resource, offering free applique patterns, recipes, a few kid craft ideas and then even more free patterns.

So if you haven’t checked out Wee Folk Art – or even if you have – why don’t you pass on the blog love and pop over there today!

Vintage Monday: Irish Cabin

Courtesy of Shabby Tiger, I spied this Irish Cabin in the Vintage Monday pool this week:

Vintage dressing table set

I like the little details, like the boat in the background. Per Shabby Tiger, this set is from the 1950s and has never been used – it’s in perfect condition. Shabby Tiger has two wardrobes full of vintage linens, so I hope she posts more into the pool!
