Friday's Find #143

TGITF Friends!  After this week's fab finds, Juliet is decked out for spring with a new hat and gloves.  Come check out the rest of this week's haul...

Friday's Finds #143 This week's fab finds include a vintage hat and gloves!

As I waited in line at an estate sale to pay for this gorgeous vintage hat, a sweet older lady exclaimed, "Oh that hat will look so nice on you!" I thanked her and smiled but didn't have the heart to tell her I probably wouldn't actually wear it, but isn't it a beauty? It is pristine-- with all of the sequins intact.  It will probably eventually go to my Etsy shop but for now I'm admiring it displayed on Juliet.

Here's a closer look at the vintage gloves--the detail on them is just  beautiful. Wouldn't they be perfect for a bride? Available

I've seen some fun craft displays created with these wooden hangers, but it's my first time to find them.  These are keepers--stay tuned to see how I use them!

Funny, I don't think I've ever shared hats before and this week we started with one and now end with another! This one is very similar to one Dear Firstborn wore as a baby, so of course I had to add it to my new Baby Love section. Available

  1. I have a pair of gloves like those too, belonged to my mother. Great finds this week, wonderful sequined hat!

  2. It's always fun to stop in and see what you discovered! I love the hat and glove displayed on Juliette. She looks smashing! I think next time I visit, I'm going to come on a Friday so I can tag along with you! ;-)
    Have a great weekend! Hugs,

  3. My father had those same wooden hangers! He kept his dress slacks on them. I love strolling down memory lane with all your fun finds Cecilia :)

  4. Great finds. I use those wooden hangers for a lot of things. Can't wait to see what you do with them.

  5. Oh those wooden hangers are a great find! I make magazine and recipe holders with mine. Fun!!

  6. I wore gloves just like the crocheted ones long ago and love the doll! I also love your dress form.

  7. I also think that hat would look smashing on you!:) Growing up we always used those hangars. I never thought they worked very well, so upcycling them is definitely the right thing to do! Lov ethe doily, wish I knew how to crochet! xo kathleen

  8. OH MY! such great finds, love the hats. I'd write more, but your ads are sucking the life out of my computer.

  9. I need to ride along in your backseat.
    I am an experienced thrifter, fleamarketeer, and I promise I won't ask silly , annoying questions like 'what are you going to do with that?'.

    I do get hungry...

  11. Can I go with you and Laura? I will ask what you are going to do with something because that's always my hangup. :)

    Love the little angel!!

  12. Oh that hat is pink perfection! I am a bit late to the TOHOT party this week due to my college semester finals but I'm so glad that I didn't miss this. Have a wonderful week.

  13. Everything is just wonderful Cecilia. You would look sweet in that hat! Love it all! I have some of those hangers and I modge podge book pages to one and that's about it. I need to finish it. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
