My Wonderful Ebay find~Vintage Batiste 1950'S Baby Dress

I adore vintage baby items and I'm always on the look out for them, especially 1950's Batiste hand embroidered baby dresses. I watch Ebay pretty regularly for some good deals. I found this one a couple of weeks ago on Ebay for $18!!! I couldn't believe it and snatched it up. It's in excellent slightly worn condition, but that makes it vintage right?. 

This little dress fits my reborn doll perfectly which is such a nice way to display my growing collection of baby vintage.

The hand embroidery detail is just exquisite and

I love the Batiste cotton they used. It just irons beautifully and
holds it's shape.

Vintage Valentine Gifts for ME!

I need a little cheering up! I haven't been blogging since December. I have been in and out of the hospital this past month having had two surgeries on my right kidney. This month has been like a blur to me. Now I am nearly completely recovered and back on my feet. Yesterday I was looking at all my blogging friends blogs and was so cheered up by all the red, pink and darling Valentine gifts and decorations. Everyone has done such a good job!!! One blogger in particular inspired me to go shopping on Etsy. I did and found these two darling Valentine gifts that I bought for me.

I found these little vintage cuties on Etsy at Vintage in Colour. Aren't they the sweetest things.

This darling kitty pincushion just spoke to me. I kept going back and back to check it out and then
bought it. So different but so happy and that's what I need now, something bright and happy.
I found this darling little gift on Etsy shop at therootcellar.

I look so forward to getting them home and on display.
