Vintage Whites In The Sunshine

I am  excited to share my vintage whites with you.  I have always loved old clothing, but just recently started picking up a few vintage white pieces for my Etsy shop, my booth, and moi, of course!!!  

I recently met a lady who holds estate sales and she always has linens.  She has a picker up North who sends them to her washed and starched!!!  I am willing to give a little more because you can see what you are getting.  When you buy a stained one, you really have no idea if you can get it clean - and then you still have to iron it.  

I decided to let them play outdoors today

I picked up the green painted iron
display at an estate sale last weekend for $10.00
 The base is really cute.

They were happy to come out of the dark closet

and breathe the fresh air

I love little pin tucks...

and lace and embroidery

This tiered skirt weighs a ton!

This gal really enjoyed being free
I have a feeling she was a free spirit in the day!

This is a Christmas tree skirt!
I always think of crazy Bernice Clifton on Designing Women
who wore the Christmas tree skirt to the Christmas party!

How sweet is this slip dress?
It was one of the beautifully laundered
pieces that I purchased from the estate sale lady.

    How are you doing, Rhonda? It seems like it has been forever since we have visited. It has been a crazy busy summer for me this year. My visiting and blogging has suffered. Trying to get back into the swing of things now. Well sweet lady...come by and see me when you get a chance!
