I don't always get to combine a post that include vintage finds for my two of my fav meme.
Yesterday began the Vintage Alphabet Party over at the Etsy Cottage Style Blog and tomorrow is Rednesday at It's a Very Cherry World. Soooooo, that means today is a red letter day!
The vintage alphabet for this month includes items under.....I-J-and K.
'I' is for vintage 'I'cons.........
The little Sunbeam Bread Girl of the 1930-40's ( you saw her before) It's a reproduction sign
The 1930's Morton Salt Girl. It's a reproduction on a cork hotmat
Everybody remembers the Campbell Soup Kids
Thru the years. I have a whole set of a soup tureen and
4 soup mugs with the different looks for the Kids each decade.
These are my favorite years.
Again, everybody remember Cracker Jack. This was a reproduction
tin saved from the 70-80's
And, this reproduction collectors Frito bag
shows the Frito kid of the 50's. If I remember
correctly, I think he looked the same in the
"J" is for "J"ewelry
As you can see I like jewlery from different years. The enamalware flower pins are from the 60's
The colored stones, rhinestones, and pearl, pins and earrings are from the 40-50's
The little gold pin in the top photo of the little girl watering her garden is from the 30's
I love vintage jewlery sooooo much it is part of my business logo,
and I incorporate it into my creations whenever possible, like here for example
My 'Dream" Angelic Inspiration, available on my website, wears a crown of gold accented by colored rhinestones asnd enamalware flowers.
This brings us to the letter "K" for Kitchy finds.
This wooden cutting board is from the 40's. My Grandma always used it. Now, when I'm not using it, it makes a great kitchy piece of wall art.
I also have various pieces of plaster fruit scattered about the walls from the 40's-60's. I don't do wallpaper..I envy you all who have the patience.........but I prefer the look of wall art. I can change it more often..LOL add to it is more like it!
I also like to use kitchy finds in my Brown Gingham Creation designs.
I cross-stitched the words on the 1950's herb motif tea towel and turned it into a kitchy pillow.
Then I found this ........
A 1960's Styleccraft recipe box in a kitchy colonial kitchen motif and then this.....
A 1940's cookbook put out by Swan's Down Flour with wonderful recipes and filled with pics of vintage dolls of the same era. Well, I put these finds together to create this.........................
A kitchy little Kitchen Angel set. (also available on my website)
I thought when the letters I-J-and K came up for the Vintage Alphabet it would be hard to fill the letters, but when I got to lookin around they were easy as A-B-C. O-K sorry I'll stop now. I'm heading over to the Vintage Alphabet Party and the on to visit Susan's Very Cherry World
