A Four Week Long Church Sale ... Part 2

Hello my dear friends,

today I am sharing the second part of my visits to the 4 week long church sale. I was not only very lucky in finding all of the linen treasures but I also found many other lovely pieces too.

And these are the other treasures I found ...

... a few tarnished pieces and ...

... a little knife and spoon. 

Just look at this little cute face! 

I found these lovely vintage pieces of beauty!
Lots of old crocheting yarn and ...

... a very neat embroidery hoop and many old buttons!

A pair of vintage knitted baby booties and ...

... an antique baby shoe dipped in copper and all tarnished.
A tiny brass padlock with key and it still works ...

... and finally a small embroidered cloth bag - so pretty and sweet.
I forgot to share this piece with you in my last post. It is a lovely piece of vintage linen that is just beautiful. I am not sure what it is ... maybe a little linen towel.
I have been so fortunate to find all these lovely treasures and I already know that I will return to the 4 week long church sale again in search of more new treasures.
All I need to do now is to find the time to create something lovely from some of my newest findings and of course once done, I will share them here on Todolwen.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.


  1. Wie schön! Solche Dinge finde ich nie. Vielleicht suche ich falsch....

  2. I remember when it was very popular to have baby shoes bronzed, they were such a pretty keepsake from babyhood. It's going to be fun seeing what you create with your awesome treasures, Karen!!

  3. LOL I was gasping louder and louder with each scroll down .... :-D
    What wonderful treasures you found! That baby face spoon is absolutely to die for!!!!! Lucky you!!!

  4. Lovely finds at the church sale. The buttons are what really caught my eye. There's something so pretty about a tumbled pile of white buttons in multiple tones.

  5. MORE gorgeous and lovely items.....**big sigh**....what fun you will have decorating and using these! I love them all!

  6. Wow- you found some absolute treasures--- this must be an incredible sale!! I'd say you made out really well!

  7. Realment, són coses precioses y que valen la pena.
