A Vintage Give-Away!
Here is a set of unused plaster fish and starfish by Miller Studio. They are from the late 1960s to early 70s, and are still kind-of in partial box. They are bright yellow and orange, one fish and the starfish are still attached in the box, the other fish is loose. I got these several years ago, I can't remember where though! I've never put them up for sale because one fish does have a line down the front of it that I wasn't sure what is was. But I've put pressure on it and it doesn't seem like a crack, just a mark on the surface, which is very faint. This is a great set for your vintage bathroom or vintage beach house. MAILTO:firstname.lastname@example.org- to enter the drawing for these fun fishes. A winner will be chosen December 15th.
Next, One day I ran out to two shops to try to do a little Christmas shopping. I only bought 1 present, but I found some great vintage fabrics at an antique shop - for myself! I don't often buy at antique shops, well, because you know that I am cheap. But they were having a sale and I couldn't resist these great 1940s fabrics.
First is a dark blue and white tropical floral plisse. It's only 32 wide by 1-1/2 yards, but I'll make something out of it. Next was a blue, white and chartreuse challis, 4 yards! I'll get a dress and more out of that. Finally is a blue Bemberg rayon chiffon with white and lavender flowers, another 4 yards of that, which will be another cute dress for me! Now I have to track down a few cute 1940s patterns.
I also bought two large pieces of a grey print rayon and a 1950s Waverly hollyhock decorator fabric, which I will be reselling on the website in a few weeks.
On Thursday, the weather was really nice, so we took Boris over to the beach for a swim. He is more interested in walking around peeing and sniffing than swimming though. He'll go into the water a little bit, bite a few little waves, and then try to make a beeline to the dunes. I took a video of him at the beach, I'll have to put some of it online so that I can torture my blog readers!
Bye for now, Carol
