1. Rise and shine! I bought some cock mugs!
2. Is it obvious I have a weakness for square, vintage clocks? Oops. This one’s going in the shop, though, so my house is saved from looking like a Square Vintage Clock Emporium.
3. I bought a sack full of vintage cookie cutters just so I could own this not-so-vintage Wilton heart cookie cutter. The things we do for love.
4. SPACE PARTY! Stack of eight vintage invitations, in their original packaging. Unfortunately the plastic wrapper was all gross so I pulled it off. I don’t really know what a space party is but OMG I NEED TO HAVE ONE!
5. I’ve been collecting interestingly-shaped monkeypod trays lately for a secret project. This one, while a bit worn, is too gorgeous to change, so I’m keeping it the way it is.
6. I found this little guy in the stuffed animal section. I’m glad I rescued him before he was given to children because he’s a vintage handmade pincushion still full of straight pins. That would have been an unpleasant discovery for a child. He’s safe with me, now. Until I sell him, that is.
7. This boot-shaped cookie cutter was in the set that I bought for the heart-shaped cookie cutter. I know it’s for Christmas, but, let’s think to ourselves, why does a boot signify “Christmas” to our collective unconscious? That’s weird. I’m donating all the rest of the cookie cutters but I’m saving the boot and I’m going to make some very interesting cookies someday.
8. This book from the 70s fits in seamlessly with the urban homesteading movement I’m so fond of today. The 1970s really influenced me, even though I was only there a few short months.
9. This vintage 7os Sesame Street book is falling apart, but I bought it specifically for arts and crafts time, where it will serve us well.
10. I forgot to add this last score into the main photo. My friend Stef discovered these vintage egg decorations. They must be from the thirties because on the inside they are marked “Made in the German Democratic Republic.” Pretty sweet.
