Keeping Time – Things that make you say “awwwww” & Giveaway Winners

Have you ever been to a graduation where video with photos of the graduates plays on the screen up front, end every time a baby photo is shown, the whole audience in unison says,


Well…get ready for some of that, okay? 🙂

It’s been quite a while since I’ve allowed  myself step foot inside an antique store, but yesterday my teenage son wanted to get out of the house, so we headed into town.  He was craving coffee, and I needed a few craft supplies, but my Jeep seemed to have a mind of it’s own, and somehow we ended up at an antique store.

Funny how that happens isn’t isn’t it?

I only had half an hour to shop before the store closed, but I found 2 sweet babies that had to come home with me.

Now my other pitchers have a new baby sister.

All together now….

And my heart melted when I spotted this sweet newborn antique baby dress.

Are you ready?…

Don’t stop now….

Take a breath, and one more time…

I could swear it gurgled at me, so I gave it a hug – right there in the aisle. 🙂

It stole my heart and came home with me.

Can’t you just picture chubby little legs sticking out from that lace?

I found a few other goodies as well, like this awesomely rusty large baking pan.

… and a pretty blue enamel coffee pot.

I’m keeping the ironstone pitcher and the baby dress, but you’ll find the rusty pan, coffee pot and a few other goodies in my online shop HERE.

I don’t know where or how, but I NEED a wall like this in my house.

Now I just need to convince my husband.

Wish me luck with that.

I hope someone I know plans a wedding soon, and I hope they order these grainsack invitations,

and I hope they invite me, so I can have one. 🙂

And for all  those Back to School projects,  these Vintage Alphabet Printables may be just what you need!

IMPORTANT – Last month I had a giveaway on my blog with 10 winners of $100 gift cards. The winners were all emailed, but many of them haven’t responded, so their gift cards can’t be sent to them. PLEASE check your email to see if you were one of the winners and respond ASAP! Don’t forget to check your junk folders! I want the winners to get their prizes!

My apologies that I didn’t get my weekly Farmhouse Friday feature finished this week.  I’ve got several projects in the works, and was having too much fun working on them to pull myself away to finish the FF post!  I’ll try again next week! 😉

  1. That is just precious! Aww! Love it! You picked up some great stuff! I personally think that Antique and Junk stores emit pheromones that draw us in – we can’t resist it – it’s a chemical reaction! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

  2. Sweet finds Angie! I have a love for white vintage dresses or night gowns of little ones as well. In fact they are hanging on a peg shelf in our bedroom. Your posts always make me smile! My little Ford Focus has a mind of its own too sometimes. Funny how that happens! Have a great week! Diane

  3. Awwwww…many happy congratulations on the new additions to the family, Angie! 🙂 Is there anything cuter than a baby pitcher? Only a baby dress made of lace and embroidered with the prettiest details! One day, you are going to have a lucky little grandchild who will look soooooooo cute in that sweet dress! AWWWW!

    My eldest niece is getting married next year and I don’t think they’ve chosen their invitations yet…I’m going to have to show her the ones you’ve showcased here…if she uses them, I’ll ask her to invite you! 😉 I love that feature wall, too…oh what a dream! And I was just having a look at your alphabet printables…oh, m’gosh, you have some really lovely ones like the one featured above…I’m going to have to think up a project for at least one of these…thank you for sharing them with us!

  4. That baby dress is fantastic! So sweet. I’m holding myself back from that blue coffee pot. Not sure that I can…

  5. Simply! Awwwww! Love your blog!

  6. great finds! but as a son who spent many, many of my younger years being dragged by my mom and sisters to fabric stores, craft stores and “cute little shops” my personal “aww” went out to your son. I hope he at least got some great coffee.

  7. Angie I love your pictures of your recent finds. I love ironstone and sweet little baby clothes. I have a few of my own! I am a winner from your giveaway and am so tickled. I can’t thank you enough. I can’t wait to do some Christmas shopping. Di@Cottage wishes

  8. Hi Angie. I understand the economic reasons for having ads on your site but I clicked on this page to review the post and five, yes 5! different windows overlayed your content. As I clicked on a few to close them, they reappeared because, obviously I made the wrong choice – I surely must want to see whatever crap is being sold. There comes a time when diminishing returns sets in and I’m almost at the point of unsubscribing because its not worth the aggravation.

  9. Love your “baby sister” pitcher, and she does look precious grouped with her older siblings! Awwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
    I too have a thing for itty bitty antique baby dresses and at one time had a small collection hanging from child size antique painted wooden hangers on pegs in my guest room. I’ve often thought about how cute they would be in a shadow box display along with some soft sole mary janes to keep them company. Maybe someday I’ll get around to doing that.
    Enjoy your day!
    P. S. By the way, I rechecked my inbox (and my junk mailbox too)…and I guess I wasn’t a “winner”! Thanks anyway!

  10. Dear Angie,
    It is such a pleasure to read your blog! You have such a knack for the vintage. I am originally from the Midwest, and your treasures bring back very fond memories for me!
    Thank you,
    Cheryl S.
