Vintage Mardi Gras: Friday's Find #235


Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Here it the first Friday of February already! Mardi Gras is on the 13th, this year and parties and parades to celebrate the occasion are pretty common here in Texas. While I've often seen the colorful plastic beads in the thrift stores, this is the first time I've come across a festive mask...

The feather colors are absolutely gorgeous--wouldn't it be fun as party decor?

Vintage souvenir trays have been good sellers for me and a little harder to come by lately, so when I saw this one representing Alaska, I grabbed it! AVAILABLE HERE!

I've always loved the classic white milk glass Fire King. This serving bowl is the Swirl pattern.  AVAILABLE HERE!

Vintage aprons are also popular sellers--especially those with a retro vibe like this one featuring colorful butterfly fabric. AVAILABLE HERE!

  2. I love the colors in the mask altho they are not my usual! Peacock feathers have ALWAYS fascinated me. I had to smile when I saw the apron; my mom sewed very similar ones for the church bazaar 50+ years ago. I also enjoy forget-me-nots; I have a small collection of ceramic items that make a great vignette. Great finds.
