Simple Vintage Treasures

I'm not sure what it is about these
Vintage (perm) curlers
But when I spotted them at a
Local Garage Sale I had to to have them!

Would you have snagged the bag for $5 too
Or am I just crazy...
There was double this amount
and I sold off half to my girlfriend.
I thought they would be fun to
include with some vintage trims, and she is
going to use them in her jewelry making

Speaking of friends check out
this large bowl of fresh walnuts
a gift from a friend..

I sure do love friends~
And thats what I like about you!

Those curlers are great, I thought they were for permanents. I vaguely remember seeing them at my grandmothers..Great find. Love that plate behind the walnuts.

Oh my goodness. Have not seen that type of curler in years. My grandmother had some. She let me as a little girl do her hair with them.

When we cleaned out my great grandmothers house after she passed away in the 60's I remember finding all these rag strips too. My Aunt said they were curlers. They wond their hair and tied it with rag strips till it dried.

Thanks for the memories.

Well, I'm interested to see what you do with those curlers. I do like anything vintage, but I've never bought curlers! That reminds me, do you remember those round pink soft rubber-like curlers that looked like suction cups? You'd wind the hair around it then bent it back to lock the hair in place. Haven't seen those since I was little.

Happy Saturday Diane! Walnuts from a tree? Oh my gosh does this bring back memories of the nut bowl and crackers and little pics that seemed to always be around in my house as a child. Always fun to visit here! Elizabeth

Thanks so much for stopping by Echo of My Heart! I am thrilled to have another friend that is crazy about the Grandkids :-)

I love your blog...and yes I would have paid $5 for the vintage curlers....they brought back memories of perms I was given as a kid.

Look forward to following your blog!
