Vintage Black Friday



i'm finally joining in on a Vintage Black Friday party, hosted by Gypsy Brocante!

i certainly do love me some vintage, but i didn't realize how much of it happened to be black!


my beloved Royal typewriter...someday i'll have the drawband repaired so i can write novels with it...ha! a girl can dream...

the latest member in my collection of old silhouettes...her name is Hazel and she is from 1929!


this "Big Ben" still ticks away...quite loudly, too

an American lit book from the 1920's that belonged to the sweetest little old lady who lived across the street from my family while i was growing up. her name is even written on the inside cover which is so dear to me.

and finally, a vintage playing card that my sweet friend gave me.


thanks for stopping by! now head over to Gypsy Brocante to see some more vintage black goods!

Pretty pretty vinatge goodies! I love my typewriter too. I need a new ribbon so I can just play around with it. I only wish I could write worth a hoot. I have to stick with DIY's and pictures...you go girl for dreaming big...have fun!

That little black bound seems extra special but I love that tiny black clock somethin' fierce and really need to fall upon one for myself soon! Enjoy your weekend. And dreams of novels. (I have that dream as well.)

As always: love your pictures! I hope you don't think I sounds like a broken record. I love all this black...I don't really have any and I am wondering why? Time to start a new collection :)

Terrific vintage black entries! I love each and every one! I have 3 similar typewriters...the first I found probably 15 years ago and it has been on display ever since! So happy to meet you and look forward to future posts!
Take care, Laura

What great finds! I adore the type writer. Just thinking about using one gives me glee.... lol I'm keeping my eye out for one. I saw one once and I shoulda pounced on it then but no - now it's been hard to spot one.

Great finds and I hope you have a great weekend! ^^

I love that Big Ben clock - so unusual being all black. Beautiful - just like your photos and your lovely self. You are a really sweet person and I'm glad our paths have crossed. :)
