Thrift and Vintage Pretties

I love skeleton keys.  I love the old door knobs they unlocked.  They can be vintage, faux, plastic or diamond (the necklace kind), I'm not picky, I HEART all of them. 

I took this rusty vintage key, added a creamy gold ribbon and paper rose and it's a cute decoration to hang from a tree, knob or hook.

Another one of my favorite things is vintage ephemera.  This glass bulb is filled with vintage sheet music.  It's displayed on vintage journal pages.  Ephemera heaven I tell ya!
I've been rescuing vintage mercury ornaments the last few years and now I seem to have a thing for rescuing vintage cookie cutters.   This cute aluminum turkey cookie cutter is perfect for Thanksgiving.  So cute with some brown seam binding to hang from.
In the next few weeks, I will be sharing more of my rescued ornaments.  Be sure to check back and visit often!

Hi Roselle...I love your key and your turkey cookie cutter is so sweet. I just bought an old Christmas tree cookie cutter. I need to come up with a project for it.

I love the glass ornament, I decided I will make a point to look for them after the holidays, I would love a bunch for next year!! Thank you for the congrats for the wedding...guess what, she wants a vintage theme. Only she is talking about buying stuff off ETSY..Yikes, she has no idea what a crafter I am so, I am going to make her follow my blog. She does not seem to want help planning the wedding, I think she is one of those girls that has been planning her wedding since she was 4 and wants to do all the planning,so as the MIL, I have to stand back and see how this plays out? I, in the mean time, am planning a fun rehearsal dinner!
