Fabulous Finds from Prairie Thistle

Sweet Little Girl With Bluebirds Framed Print - Purchase Here

I am back again to share vintage finds that I have been gathering over the past few months at some of my favorite antique shops.  Here is the first installment...  I hope you enjoy them.

Tarnished Mini Grater and Peeler - Purchase Here

When I picked up this mini grater and peeler I thought it would be great hanging from a peg in the kitchen.  I also thought it would be a great assemblage art element, possibly the body or head of an assemblage doll sculpture.

Amazing Vintage Garters - Purchase Here

Great vintage garters would be so much fun mixed into your next mixed media piece.  I haven't seen any of these in years...

Vintage Blue Tin From England - Purchase Here

Beautiful vintage confections tin in vivid metallic blue with Roman inspired decorations from England.  These old tins are great in a tabletop display and double as functional storage.  Imagine giving this year's Holiday treats in this gorgeous tin.  What a great hostess gift.

Vintage Resin Botantical Trivet - Purchase Here

This is a lovely vintage footed trivet with beautiful green ferns, a daisy and sweet butterfly.

Vintage Scoop Set From Japan - Purchase Here

Four piece vintage scoop set from Japan would be great put into service for tea, sugar, or bath salts in the bath.

Vintage Tart Set - Purchase Here

Tiny tarts would be a cinch using these vintage tins.  Set of five tart pans measuring only four inches in diameter.

Vintage Children's Book - Purchase Here

Children of the Pines vintage book would be perfect for the Summer cabin tucked in the forest.

Vintage Ladies Watch - Purchase Here

I have so much more to share with you in the upcoming weeks - literally boxes and boxes of goodies that I have found in my travels over the past few months.  Now it is time to destash to make room for new additions. 

I hope you are all enjoying the warm days of Summer.

Blessings - Julie

Hi, Julie...

Those vintage garters that came off of a girdle or garter belt make me feel OLD! ;-) I remember them well. I also remember when panty hose came out. Yes, I do. ;-)

That was fun getting to see all of your finds...

Hi Julie, I'm loving your stuff! I'm so trying to downsize while lusting after old stuff like this! I adore those old fashioned childhood prints!
Catching up on your last few posts. Your sale at the farm sounds so fun-I love the idea of a theme. Your booth was so well thought out and put together. And I love your jewelry. I may try my hand at PMC again. I took a class. I have a kiln available. Any pointers?
