Vintage Finds

And its back to vintage.  Sorry about the Glee spam posts, but I didn't really have anything to write vintage lifestylewise for the past week, so I decided to share my love for one of my favorite TV shows.  I know I probably think way too hard and deep about Glee as well as other favs, but my philosophy on TV is if you cannot get deeply invested in it and have thoughtful and meaningful conversations/ideas about, then what would be the point of wasting your time watching it.  So I tend to delve deep into my favorite shows, as you can tell.  I will try not to do too many posts like that, unless people like them.  So onto my vintagey things.  As promised, I am finally doing a post about my vintage finds from the Saturday Flea Market Extravaganza.  Wow did I make out in the patterns.  I'm not going to write too much because to be honest I am still very tired.  So the pictures are going to have to speak for themselves for now.  Oh, and I finally got a copy of Lauren Rennell's Vintage Hairstyling that all the other vintage bloggers love...and wow! I have so much love for this book already it isn't even funny.  The pictures are gorgeous, and I am definitely going to have to experiment with those hairstyles soon.  So, until I have something exciting to write, have a look at these beauties!!
So first, get the boring stuff out of the way (especially if you don't sew)...I got some great 1930's-1960's buttons and metal zippers

Here's my luggage set.  It is actually a 3-piece set, but the medium sized suitcase was inside the larger suitcase and I was too lazy to pull it out to get a picture.  And I found another small cosmetic type suitcase that matched in style but is green.
I found this pretty perfume dabber bottle in a cardboard box.  I don't think it is very old, but it was quite stylish and the perfume smells good so I couldn't resist.
I found a fur collar for super cheap, so of course I couldn't pass that up.  I think it might be rabbit, but not sure.
I have no idea what this pretty container is made of or how old it is, but again I liked the way it looked, so I got it:D
Then we come to the fun part in my finds, at least for me.  Look at these lovelies:
1940's Bed Jacket
Hats Galore:

A few hat boxes to store the lovelies:
A purse and some gloves:
And then did I make out on the mother load of all patterns.  And, yay! Most are my size or only a size too small/big:
And last but not least, what outfit is complete without earrings?  Oh, and I found in the one green suitcase a hatpin stuffed in the side.  Yeah!  I was needing one of those.
Well, that's it for now.  I am off to finish my sailor pants.  Until next time
