Vintage Love....

 I always know deep down, really and truly, one does not gain happiness from *things* but from people, family, friendships, love, relationships etc etc. Though *blush* hands up, when I found this little beauty, I found oh so much happiness....

Oh it is just so cute....

And like me, vintage 70s ;) All the lovely little and original, things inside. Cups and saucers, plates, cutlery, flasks, sandwich boxes.... I love playing with them like a little girl would, who enjoys playing with her toys....

I love, love, love the little salt and pepper containers, so cute....

And as for the basket itself, just beautiful....

I love it!! And well tis my birthday today, so if you can't treat yourself on your birthday, when can you ;)



  1. Its beautiful - and yes, if its your birthday then you must have pretty treats! Have a great day!

  10. Happy Birthday Mary. I love your birthday present to yourself. It is the sort of thing that I love too. I never really grew up either, you see. When I was a small girl, I had a miniature tea set, real porcelain with the willow pattern on it. I loved it. Now I don't have it anymore. I wonder where it went? If you see it amongst your travels, do tell me :)
    Hope you get your pink food mixer this year?

  14. Happy Birthday from across the pond.
    Love the picnic basket. My parents had one like that in the 1950s. It was versatile.
    And I won't suggest that your special birthday gift means you're a basket case. Won't do that. Promise!

  15. How lovely - I have a pile of hampers as they are so nostalgic.

    Happy Birthday to you!
