Mid-Century Modern Vintage

More Recent Purchases

8:52 PMDollie DeVille

I thought I would share a collection of photos of things I have recently purchased. 
But first, I project I finished:

I took some leftover paint from the kitchen cabinets and pained this teal ameoba shape behind the shadow box above the couch. I love it! It it a big statement that was free and only took and hour or so! Thanks again to Ellen for the lovely shadow box!

This blonde magazine holder was a gift from Ms. Sandra Sprague. I really like it! 

I also bought a few things off of Sandra:

A new gold bench for my dressing room!

This picnic basket and dish set!

I have been trying not to buy stuff, but I couldn't resist buying these things at at 75% off booth sale at the antique mall:

little fish salt and pepper shakers

Right now they are just sitting on a shelf in the kitchen next to a lady head vase and creamer. 

I got this Costco stepping stool which I really needed. It is white cracked ice vinyl and copper. 
Now I can reach the top shelf! 

I got these little vintage linens for .25 each! 

I also got a steal on this atomic gold confetti glitter fiberglass chip and dip bowl-$4! Can you believe that I passed it up because I really hated the butterflies? Then I realized my error and went back for it. You can't see the butterflies (they are real by the way) when the dish is full. I mean, it was only $4!!!

I also got this little crush-o-matic ice crusher for $4. 

Now, I know that you are thinking. No, I am not pregnant (thank goodness). But this deadstock vintage bottle warmer was a steal so I couldn't pass it up! I am just going to store it until the time comes. I got some vintage glass bottles to go with it at only $1.50 each! 

Next is the stuff that I got at the Johnny Cash Music Festival:

These tops were gifted to me by the Blasters. Thanks guys! 

In retrospect, I shouldn't have bought this sweater. I am supposed to be saving for a wedding remember? I tried to talk them down from $34.99 with no luck. Can you believe this was even the cheapest sweater they had? But I don't have any floral print sweaters, and nothing in purple besides a pair of vintage heels that will match this perfectly...... See, I had to buy it! 

Maybe I paid too much for that sweater, but I made it up with this playsuit purchase! It is in perfect condition, and super flattering on, and I got it for only $5!!! Yup! Possibly one of my best purchases ever!

Now, this next dress is a heart breaker. I tried really hard not to buy it, but it kept calling my name! So, I decided to buy it, but plan to save it for next Viva. 

Isn't it amazing? It is a mustard yellow dress with novelty atomic print.

Those are ships in a bottles and NSEW markers!  

It also has the original belt with all of its rhinestones!

This is possibly my favorite part- the ties at the shoulder match the belt!

Now you can see why I couldn't turn down this dress! It looks fan-freakin'-tastic on too! I think it was a good buy at only $75.
