Vintage Vibe: April Finds

This month the collection is in the pink!  I'm in totally love with each of these pieces featured here as they hearken Spring with a lightness and whimsy!
This retro ribbed vase is a stunner we just acquired; I think its an easy pick for Mother's Day, especially for the girl that has it all.

It's becoming harder to find these, but - hooray, this is a flour sack bag.  Manufacturers in the 50's and 60's began to print fun patterns on the flour sacks for their customers to use as a free incentive.  Don't you wish they'd continued?!
And I can't believe I even found this amazing quilt.  About a twin size, it's in pretty good condition. Also hand pieced in a lovely double wedding ring pattern but what makes this piece so nice is a lovely scalloped edge and the amazing paisley fabric on the back!
This must of been made for a very special person because quilt backs of this age are typically pretty plain, as they put their work and good fabrics on the front.
