Another awesome collection of vintage postcards! let me explain myself...
I have very fond memories of my mama and I driving to Florida with the convertible

Guilty pleasure...
How COOL are these!?!?

My fellow tattooed compadre'.
So cool!

Adorable...just sayin.

So, my dear it is.

Feast your eyes upon all this fantasticness!

Like I said...the treasure hunting gods were definitely on my side the past
 couple of days and I could not thank them more! 

These were just some of my favorite finds...

Looking forward to taking you along on my future adventures!

Till next time...




  1. Holy wow! What a wealth of amazing stuff! I'd be walking on air for a month. I think my favorite is that tray with the seahorses. Super sweet.

    1. Eartha!
      I actually found that tray by accident! I went back down into the basement to see if I could discover anymore of the popcorn decorations (which I did) :) and as I was about to walk back upstairs...I saw that tray from the corner of my eye! I was like "oh yeah! score!"
      It was just meant to be ;)
      I love my estate sale days :) I just wish I could make a career out of them! I would LOVE to go to them all the time!

    1. Rae!
      Thanks so much!
      I had a realllly lucky day!
      Those days are the best :) I went to work with the biggest smile on my face and I probably looked pretty ridiculous all day dancing around out of excitement :)



Thanks so much for stopping by!
I love hearing from you!
