welcome back, Vintage Black Friday junkies! thank you again to Jill at Gypsy Brocante for hosting this fabulous party!
so i took these photos with the ones i took for last Friday's party, but i decided to save them for this week, rather than overwhelm you all!
i acquired this lovely old compact from my great great aunt many years ago. i actually carry it in my purse...why keep it shut up in a storage box? i took the original rouge tray out of it when i first got it, and it actually has enough room to store a few of my favorite jewelry pieces when i travel.
i love this old camera! i originally got it to use as a display piece, but when i discovered that it was still in working order (minus the flash), i got a whim to actually try to take photos with it! i found some old unopened film spools on ebay, and used them all. unfortunately i can't find any places that i trust to develop it...but the dream of having some neat "old" photos waiting for me is just wonderful!
vintage embroidery thread spool labels...aren't they lovely?
so this one might be a bit of a stretch since there's only a little bit of black...but i love it nonetheless! i found this old chipped black frame with the bird print already in it at the thrift store for 70 cents! old black frame + birds + 70 cents equals...well, wouldn't you have gotten it, too??
so that's it from me for this week, but be sure to check out the other AWESOME Vintage Black Friday party-ers at Gypsy Brocante!
thanks for stopping by!
P.S. several of you wondered about the new boots i mentioned on my Pretty Things post from earlier today. well, i posted a comment on that post and spilled my secret!
