I'm On a Mission park the Car In The Garage!

Yes I am on a Mission
And Not A Mission Impossible
even thou at times it feels that way.....

I have so many boxes of Vintage Goodies
That came out of the Spare Room
So I'm busy taking pictures and
adding things to my Shops!
This cute little Girl Scout
Cake Decoration Set!
For sale

I've got some Vintage Patterns 
The Graphics are Darling!

So before they go to a New Home
I decided to make some Gift Tags

And then another one of 
my Collections is
Vintage Hankies
I have these tucked away so
I've decided to go through them
and offer some for Sale!

I have these three New Old Stock
Hankies in my Shop!

Well I am going to be a Busy Girl this
weekend and get through
more of the boxes that are sitting
in the garage right where my Car
is supposed to park!

Have a Great Weekend!

A worthy goal, Diane! I'll have to go and take a look at all the lovelies in your shop!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend--don't work TOO hard at all the cleaning!


Jane said...

I'm just glad to know that I'm not the only one who has so many boxes of vintage goodies that it's overrunning the garage (in my case, it's my studio). I have been trying to sort, organize, etc. but I'm getting nowhere!
Hope you have better luck.

Lovely idea for tags and great goal. I have the same one for my basement. I'd love to see the floor one day. I think it's concrete if I remember correctly!

I also have tons of vintage. It's to the point that I can make choices between the best and the better!

I've been doing the same thing in my craft room. It's so nice to purge every once in a while. I find myself doing this in overdrive after I watch an episode of Hoarders.

Amy said...

What wonderful hankies. It's a shame they're not made anymore. A lot of them had such pretty graphics on them.

barbara said...

Good luck, Diane! That girl's pattern with the hats and muff is too cute for words.
