seeing double

Another super busy weekend comes to a close!  We spent time up and down the coast of New Jersey visiting friends.  Fortunately Ryan didn’t wear the button down shirt.  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you’ll have to check out the picture and feedback on facebook. Feel free to weigh in (but only if you side with me).

Kidding.

Anyway, amongst our weekend and earlier in the week we managed to scoop up some pretty good finds.  It has been a while since I took the time to photograph them and share here on the blog.  I made an effort at doing so this week because that’s kind of what this blog is about, right?  Pics of vintage finds.

So I noticed a trend this week.  There were lots of pairs.

I’m kind of obsessed with the paint by number trend.  I can’t walk away from them.  I’m not into equestrian much which is also popular but I had to grab this pair of PBN horses.

I think I like the white one best.

But the texture on the brown one is impressive for paint by number.

How great is this set of original Ladies and Men restroom signs?

My mind is spinning with ideas on how these could be used other than for distinguishing his & her bathrooms.

How would you display them?

Love the details on this little suitcase.  The leather handle, the stripey exterior and the hardware.  This is the type of old suitcase that makes a perfect card box at a vintage chic wedding.  Maybe I should hold onto it in case we ever plan a vintage chic wedding…

Oh yes I realize the suitcase is not part of a pair however I did nab a great luggage set this week in excellent condition.  I never snapped pictures before moving them into my space at West End.  So yes another pair although not pictured.  You’ll have to go see them for yourself.  They’re nearly in mint condition.

I also found not one but two steamer trunks this week.  Both are pretty filthy so I will share them at a later, cleaner date.

More pairs and more PBNs…a pair of paint by numbers of a pair of dogs.  Definitely seeing a trend.

Love the cool blues in the background.

I’ve been on a typewriter kick lately.  (Hasn’t everyone?)  Although I only found one this week.

Bonus, still has its case!

Those are the highlights.  What treasures have you found lately?
