Vintage Alice in Wonderland Hollow Book

This blue vintage copy of Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll has been transformed into a hollow book box – a superior stash spot for things important enough to keep tucked away. If I could keep it myself, I would, but it’s my job to pass all of these awesome things on. I dearly love Alice in Wonderland. Did you know that it’s available to read for free online? This time around I added textured, decorative paper to the bottom of the stash spot that really accents the vintage blue cover of the book. It’s really been around, but hopefully soon it will find a new home with someone who will enjoy it as a box for a long time. View the listing for this in my Etsy shop.

My Favorite Vintage Find of 2011

Vintage Cannon Royal Family Floral Sheet Set!
Vintage Cannon Royal Family Floral Sheet
I’m so in love with this sheet set that I got at a garage sale during the summer of 2011 while I was in Minnesota. It was a full standard sized set – fitted sheet, top sheet and 2 standard pillow cases in PERFECT condition. I can’t use the sheets right now but I use the two pillow cases on my feather pillows (which I also found at an estate sale during summer 2011, 2nd best find of the year!) all the time! I feel comforted every time I get in bed and see this print. When my aunt saw them she said, “I think my dad, your grandpa, had the exact same set.”! What could top loving the print, loving the feel of the fabric, and the possible family connection?? I paid a dollar for all! *fist pump*

I messed with the colors a bit and put this as my desktop background for the time being. You could too if you felt inclined..

Next time you pass that GARAGE SALE sign on the side of the road during the summertime, just think of all of the wonderful items you could be missing out on that aren’t even available anywhere in stores. I can’t find this exact Cannon sheet set anywhere for sale online right now either!
