Another Week, Another Pile of Loot

That wolf picture is exactly like one my Grandmother had hanging on her wall when I was a little girl.  It is dated 1925.  No, I was not a little girl in 1925.  It is just a print and in pretty rough condition but a sweet memory for me to find! The pretty lady next to it is also a vintage print but she called out to me to rescue her.
This pretty little Putz church is marked Japan but I'm not so sure how vintage it is because there is a compartment to put in a battery for light.  Old or new, still fun Christmas decor.
Flocked Shiny Brites and red and white porcelain enamel pans.  I don't know what draws me to those pans but I can't resist them.
I did a poor job taking a picture of this vintage chest.  It has four drawers but I covered one up with that pattern.  When found it was standing up the tall way.  The drawers are square so they fit either horizontally or vertically.  The quilted vinyl and handles are a slightly different design but a very close match to this Dream House sewing box I found here.  The box in front of it holds and old piano roll.
A few trinkets and a vintage sachet pattern.  I think the little heart is likely a pincushion.  I wonder where baby's other shoe is?
So fun to find things with the original price tag!
I discovered recently that Blogger has gone flaky again on delivering comments to my email.  My apologies if anyone has commented and I have not responded!!

That same wolf print hung in a frame in the bedroom when I was a kid. It must have been a popular print in the 50s. xo Diana

How exciting to find a picture just like the one from your grandmother. Love the 4 drawer cabinet and the Putz house. You did good!!

You are so smart to buy Christmas now, you will be glad you did in December. Some of my comments have not been delivered to my email either, it's been going on almost a year, I hate when I miss returning comments. I am always going to comments on my dash board to see which ones did not go through to my email...What a pain!

I love that you found something that your grandmother used to have. That hankie sure is pretty. I'm always drawn to anything red and white. I may not have bought the pans, but I definitely would have looked at them!

You find cool stuff my friend, buy it when you see it.......if you can! We were at Plucky here in Eugene yesterday and they couldn't get wifi so they couldn't process payments other than cash or check...epic fail!
Hope you're well:).

Now THESE are real treasures! Congratulations on these fantastic treasures. I still can't get myself to go in a thrift store - no energy and then there is getting anything in the house. But I really want to thank you for shopping and sharing the found treasures with your blog readers. Love everything, especially the bronze shoe.

Hi Kathy, you sure found some great treasures. Love the little Putz church and the ornaments.
I like to find those enamel ware pans too.
Have a great week,
Hugs, CM

My favorite is the little creamer in the same photo as the little shoe.
