I’ve been hot on the trail of warm Fall colors to take to Sage Farm’s November show. First up, an 1920’s orange compote (or comport) with a wide gold rim. The glass is clear, the orange is a layer applied on the outside.
Can’t you just picture this fiery piece on your Thanksgiving buffet?
The more I look at it the more I’m tempted to keep it for myself! I’ll have to wrap it up and tuck it in a tote now. Click here for more!

Apron is modeled by a vintage Acme adjustable dress form, size Junior. I haven’t been that size since I was eleven.
Some of these spring days are a little dreary. April showers, you know? But chores still have to be done.
This vintage (1960s? 1970s?) apron cheers me right up. Cinderella would have loved it.
It’s bluebird-approved! Here’s why.

When we cleaned out our mom’s attic last summer, Janeray and I found a box of old woolens that she’d saved.
There was an ancient Pendleton shirt or two, some worn-out trousers, and remnants of sewing projects.
And there was this lovely little toddler’s skirt. Janeray and I both probably wore it!
Yep, there’s more!

That’s why I have a snuggly obsession with vintage plaid scarves. They’re warm. They’re cozy!
They’re cheap at thrift stores and take up waaaay less space than tablecloths. Yep, there’s more!
