Happy Halloween… Vintage Style πŸŽƒ

This black and orange QUILTED dress is my costume today!  I’m going as a 60’s girl 😊

  
The bottom half of this dress is seriously quilted!! I’m going to be so warm when I take my kiddos out tonight!!

   
 
There is even a pocket –  perfect for for keeping a secret candy stash!! πŸ˜‰

  
(This dress was half off at an Estate Sale – so it was $1.50)

Simone is going as Laura from Little House on The Prairre. She got her outfit from a church sale for $2.

The older lady that checked us out said she had made the dress and hat for a barn dance she attended when she was young.

Vintage Fashion #7

I couldn’t resist posting this handsome picture of my three boys as part of my Vintage Fashion Series!

They are actually dressed as magicians but they look like little vintage gangsters!

  

Eli looks like a vintage Newsboy πŸ“°

  
Thank you Goodwill for all pieces of their outfit… Pants, shirts, vests, hats ($2 each)

Friday Vintage Fashion – #6

Β Happy day before Halloween πŸŽƒ

I think it’s fitting that my vintage dress today is black with orange accent flowers!


My beautiful halloweenish dress…

Keeping warm with a jean jacket…

Truly getting into the season’s spirit with a pumpkin orange sweater…

I accessorized with a retro-flipped out hair style held back with a vintage orange scarf .

…and I can’t forget my pumpkin-pie earrings that I scored at a craft fair!

Happy Almost Halloween Y’ALL!

Shine on old vintage lamps – shine on!

I absolutely love old lamps!Β  I rue the day that I run out of room for another one!

My husband and I have quite a collection of vintage lamps, so I amΒ going to give you a photo tour of them.

I don’t know much about their history or worth…

… I just know that my husband and IΒ saw them at either an estate sale or a thrift store and knew that they looked pretty cool!

I love how theyΒ add characterΒ to a room!

These lamps are in our living room and family room.

These next two lamps are in the master bedroom.Β 

I like that the bottom globes have a dim light that I can read by.

My daughter’s room.

I felt like I won the jackpot when I found her this lamp!

I hope you liked our old lamps πŸ™‚

I also hope it encourages you to keep an eye open at thrift stores!

Remember: Reuse, reuse, reuse!
