on the 3rd sunday of each month there's a great antique flea market i love to go to. starting at 5am, one can walk among aisles and aisles of terrific vintage finds, shabby treasures and retro gems until their head starts to swim . last month i came away with some old children's books, dictionaries and flash cards that i knew still had life in them.
these flash cards were the perfect fit for some blank note cards i already had. and i used this tutorial to put together these little gift bags using pages from a 1957 nursery rhyme book that had the most gorgeous illustrations.
i can't wait to use the cards to send a special note and the bags will definitely be used to wrap up some sweet little gifts. there's just something about vintage items that immediately calms me down and gets me longing for simpler times. i remember books i read as a little girl (something by beverly cleary with a passel of children eating cake from chipped china plates in old box cars), stories passed down by parents and grandparents, classic movies with black and white beauties on the arm of their fellas.
are you a vintage junkie too?
