And there are a couple of guys thrown in:
These two are my favorites:
Most of them have been thrifted, a few came from Tuesday Mornings, of all places, a few others from antique stores here and there. I love them posed in front of the 1940's mirror I thrifted a month or so ago.
I pair them with my collection of airbrush pictures from the 40's and 50's.
My collection started with these:
They hung in my grandparent's house for as long as I could remember. Now, I hunt others down at antique and thrift stores, but it's hard to find them in both good condition and at affordable prices.
This one is one of my favorites:
I saw it at an antique store in Orange County, fell in love with it, but it was priced at $75, and that was a bit steep for me. Fast forward six months, and I found the same one for $25 at an antique store in Kentucky, when I was travelling with my sister and brother-in-law. Of course, I snatched it up, begged my bro-in-law to pack it in his suitcase amidst his clothing, and prayed that it wouldn't break on the plane trip back. It arrived safe and sound (thanks, Mark!).
I love the pink background, with the daisy border.
I can't believe it's been two weeks since I last posted, and almost that amount of time since I've even read anyone's blog. I've spent that time doing some thrifting, and working on craft and decorating projects that I've been putting off for months. Hopefully, I'll be self disciplined enough to get a post up this weekend, but I wouldn't hold your breath on that : ) I'm not famous for self-discipline.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. Thank you for your visit, and thanks, in advance, for your comments. I love reading them.
