Some Vintage Goodness

Happy Tuesday!

Today is my day to back up my photos. I need to do this so badly. Have you backed yours up lately?

If you checked my blog last week you may have seen that I went with a good friend of mine to several antique stores and hit Goodwill, as well, looking for goodies to use on projects. I was thrilled with some of the fabulous things I found. I am giong to have to make time to go do that more often! Anyway, I found some amazing postcards at one of the antique stores here. I used one of them to create this gift box.

I also found a great chorus book at Goodwill for 69 cents. I cut a couple of flowers out of one of the pages and inked the edges with pink ink.

I also found a great schoolbook at one of the shops. It had all of those fabulous vintage images that a teacher like me love. :) I cut one of the images out of the book and used it on this card.

Hope these images have inspired you to do a little antique shopping. :) Have a great day!

Your creations are just wonderful! My Dh and I are always hunting in thrift stores for goodies like this! I love the antique stores but then the items cost more.

Wow, have they ever! I am definitely going to look at stuff with a new light now. I've never thought of looking for old books and songbooks like that. And what cool stuff you can make with it all. I LOVE these projects, Lisa! Such cute stuff!
