Thrifting and Preparing for a 500 Follower Giveaway

I have been so crazy busy preparing for the Holiday Vintage Sale that I almost missed the fact that I am close to having 500 Followers. What an amazing milestone! I appreciate everyone who follows my blog and am gathering goodies for a Giveaway when we hit 500! So if you aren't following please join the celebration. And please see below for information regarding the upcoming Holiday Vintage Sale held by Danni of Oh Hello Friend.

Meanwhile so many more things have been keeping me busy. I finally had a chance to go thrifting today. My favorite find is this kitschy red enamel kitchen thermometer. And yes, it is almost 90 degrees today in Southern California!
I also found a Mission Mason Jar. The glass jar has an embossed symbol of the California Missions. I've seen Ball and Atlas Mason jars but never a Mission Mason jar. I also found another decorative muffin tin.
I love kitchen linen with red accents. The tea towel is vintage. The cherry fabric appears newer.
I selected this crocheted piece from a stack of linen because it had a third place ribbon from a County Fair competition. It wasn't until I laid it out at home that I saw the image of the Statue of Liberty and read the words "Freedom, Happiness, God Bless America". How cool is that? And it won a ribbon!
I found a few old Las Vegas postcards and souvenirs. The yellow object in the first photo is a souvenir keychain viewer. When you hold it up to a light you can view the photo inside. I was able to capture the image inside the viewer of old Downtown Las Vegas at its best.

Now to the big news about the Vintage Holiday Sale hosted by Danni of Oh, Hello Friend. If you are going to be in the Los Angeles / Orange County area on Saturday, November 10, 2012 and would like to do a little vintage holiday shopping then please come by and say hello. All of the details are HERE. It is free and filled with a gathering of Vintage Goodness! It would be such great fun to meet everyone. I will have everything from vintage Christmas goodies to Industrial treasures with kitschy Kitchen gifts and vintage Wedding decoration ideas as well.

And don't forget to Follow my blog if you haven't already. I'm working on putting together some awesome goodies for the 500 Follower Giveaway.

Hope everyone had a great day of thrifting.
