Thrifty Tuesday: Mattresses (yes!), babies, and reading

Oh, my goodness...I posted about this weekend being one of the best thrifting trips ever...Cassie and I found these mid century day beds and now our homes are quite a bit more mod. We love them! I thought you would want to see the mattress that came with mine. It's Stearns and Foster, one of the higher end companies of mattress kings, but it's VINTAGE Stearns and Foster. Haha! Take a look. I got all excited. 

The new daybed was my model for my other finds... the baby clothes...ahhh...they are precious.  If you are a sewing mama, I think your little one will most definitely need the embroidered dress in gray blue on the left.  Look at the detail. 

A cute appliqued giraffe dress that has a big tie in the back instead of zippers or buttons.  How cool and comfy for this hot summer sun! And the peach overalls with ruffle straps and embroidered sheep...too cute for little bits.
And then, the paper hoarder *clears throat* came home with some paper, of course.  Vintage Current (don't you remember looking at their catalogs to find your next letter writing papers?) baby deer fold-a-notes, a vintage recipe book for storing handwritten recipes,  and 1970s Cosmos.  I bet those will be fun to read. Ha!  Then all of this will make its way to the shop, Feed the Birdies Vintage! 




Thanks so much to those who have visited, promoted, and purchased from FTB Vintage.  I have my niche, I am so happy in it, and gosh, this is more fun than I have ever dreamed it would be!  Next step...a vintage trailer that I can travel with in the summer, and the show is on the road.  Don't you think that would be fun? 

I am sharing my thrifty finds this week with  Thrift Share Monday (Apron Thrift Girl), and Flea Market Finds (Her Library Adventures), two of my favorite new blogs!

Thanks for adding feathers to my nest! Have a wonderful day!

How Feed the Birdies flew in....

Once upon a time two little boys ate Happy Meals in the middle seat of a Ford minivan. Not quite willing to eat the last few fries, they launched them out the door screaming, "feed the birdies!!" And so my journal of a road through motherhood and wifedom, with a little bit of crafting on the side...where everybirdy gets a french fry. And we're all happy about it.
