Classic Or Vintage

My newest find. Could this be called farm house classic or
fun vintage?

I recently found a taffy I loved as a kid. I haven't seen this in a long time.
This candy could be called a vintage brand, does that make me a classic?


I found these vintage beads in some of my mothers things. It makes for a very classic look.

My next read, I am ashamed to say I have not read this classic before.

This is neither classic or vintage (yet). I wanted to show my progress, I do not like the background I chose. The new back ground is in the washer as I type, it is an old vintage skirt.
Have a great week!

I love everything but especially your mother's beads. The bunny rug is going to be beautiful.

Cathy, your vintage beads are super beautiful. I would venture to say that the rolling pin looks vintage to me.

I've never read that classic book either but heard the name before.

Your bunny rug is hopping along just fine. I'm looking forward to see the background.

Have a great week. JB

Fun stuff...I loved that taffy...pulled out a filling or two, if I remember correctly.
Your rug is looking great! The flowers are so colorful!

The rolling pin reminds me of my mom's only hers had green handles. She used it a lot through the years as she raised us. My favorite thing she made with it is egg noodles, yum.

I love the look of hooked rugs, etc, and bought a mug coaster kit at a quilt retreat to give it a try. I'm not sure it's for me but it was fun trying.

Love the vintage rolling pin Cathy, I've never heard of the 'taffy' though.
Your Mothers vintage beads are indeed beautifully classic. Your next read must be an American classic, as I'm afraid I haven't read it either, but I'm sure the little rabbit will be a real treasure :o)
Hope everyone is well, have a great week.

I think your bunny is coming along well and is really neat! As for your other vintage finds...I am always amazed at what you come up with. That old rolling pin is really cool...I'd hang it in the kitchen, it had character!

Here's a comment from one of your "vintage" readers. I enjoyed this post. I used to collect old rolling pins.Then I started painting country scenes on them. My favorite is an old one with blue handles. Do you remember the teflon ones?

I love the beads! What a great keepsake. The bunny is coming along great too. If anyone finds my rolling pin in a few thousand years they will only wonder where the little handles went..for some reason I lose the handles on my pins..mystery.

That necklace is a doozy. I am so jealous. Love the quote but think plenty of fellas would say Rosalind's best attributes weren't cosmetic or confidence! Following you right back!

Oh my.... yes I loved that taffy when I was a kid too. Sure couldn't eat it now tho, it would pull out everyone of my crowns for sure.

Bunny is cute as the dickens.
