Friday's Find #180


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Coming across something I haven't seen before is one of the best perks of thrifting. I am smitten with this set of Asian ladies and the intricate details of their kimonos. Have you ever seen anything like them? The delicate faces appear to be hand painted and the silky fabric gives them a three dimensional quality, but the backing is tagboard. The red cords would suggest they may have been intended as ornaments, but I think they would be so lovely in a framed display. Available

I love the sweet embroidery on this handmade apron. I am still pondering how I might use it.

  8. Love the ladies, the apron and that runner! Great finds. Nothing here as all of Oregon (well, almost) is trapped by snow and ice. Not the time to be out and about.

  9. Oh my gosh, 25-30 years ago, I had some ornaments almost exactly like those Asian ladies! I had ordered them from a catalog (can't remember which company) and hung them on our Christmas tree for a few years. I agree they would look great framed.

  12. My grandpa was in advertising, and in the 70's he had a TON of those Asian ladies. We had some of them mounted on stuff paper and hung in our hallway as decor for many years. I don't know why he had them but they must have been part of some advertising campaign. He lived and worked in Baltimore at the time.
