Treat Yo Self...

Shockingly for as much vintage as I buy I don't keep most of it.I did do a fun trade and find a few neat items these past 2 weeks that I thought I'd share here.First I'll share my trade goods I did with one of my instagram pals Darlene.She had her eye on some ballerina wall hangings,a cardigan,and lucite confetti bracelet I had and in return I scored this Bakelite cherry necklace and charm necklace from her!I've coveted the cherries for over a decade but could never justify spending the money on one and was never lucky to stumble across one at an estate or thrift.

The charm necklace is so kitschy cute!

At the antique mall I picked up this Czech glass perfume decanter for $5.00.It'll display pretty in the pink bathroom I hope to one day have.

I picked up this glass bottle that  I want to fill with pink soap and display in the laundry room.I don't currently have a laundry room,just a damp,dark basement but I'm looking to move into a place by the end of summer as I've got my husband on board with the realization that we've outgrown our current home already.The one I have my eye on has one and yes,I've taken to decorating it in my head already.Which is setting myself up to be disappointed if it doesn't pan out but fingers crossed all the same.

Have you guys picked up anything fun for yourself that past few weeks?


  1. The glass perfume decanter is so sweet .

  2. That necklace is killer! The perfume bottle is very pretty too

  3. What terrifically fun pieces! That cherry stars, it's such a classic beauty!

    My best finds as of late were three pairs of 40s and 50s gloves, plus two vintage brooches this past weekend at Value Village's latest 50% off sale. It has been ages since I found true vintage there, so scoring five items on the same day really felt like I hit the local vintage jackpot! :)
