What? This old thing? Nah, had it for years...

Okay, everyone act natural...

Dear Handyman couldn't join me today so I had to go out treasure hunting on my own. The last time I did that I came home with an industrial scale. So if we all agree to act natural as if there is nothing new or unusual then maybe he won't notice what I found today.

She is an old French dress form. And it was a choice between her and a large cubby hole display shelf that I really didn't have room for anyway. At least she takes up less space and I've always wanted one and she was a good price and, well, I had a tough week... Well, maybe Dear Handyman won't even notice her or ask any questions. Ahh, but don't you just love her?

I found a few other small items like this old seed bag with great graphics of geese in flight.

Scraps of fabrics and vintage table cloths.

A couple of button cards and a few buttons, some of which appear to be bone.

And finally, this set of small French tart pans. The largest pan is only 4 inches wide.
Okay now, everyone remember to act like you've seen the French dress form standing there for years ;-)

The weather was so wonderful today. Hope everyone had a great day thrifting.

  1. Oh she's a dream. My husband always rats me out. His favorite line is, "don't think I didn't notice that you put (fill in the blank)"! I have yet to have him miss one. Enjoy your treasure.

  2. I love love love that dress form. I have a modern one at home on wheels. She's from a store that closed and I use her to display my vintage scarves. Form and function! Gotta love that.

    Your vintage piece here is lovely!
