We can all use some sweet love these days and I am really excited to share with you our new Valentine’s Day sweet heart designs. My favorite is the bluebird or lovebirds as they are reminiscent of a 1950s vintage valentine card and has the words “Be My Tweet Heart” that is perfect for the vintage collector or Pinup Girl. We also have our pretty lady with her “Love Letters” and she has her cute little puppy dog (my Luna) sitting next to her with a stamp so she can mail that letter to her love. Our Love Letters tee is available in pink or white and our Be My Tweet Heart tee comes in candy pink. We remain size inclusive and our designs are available in Small-4XL and ready to ship, just in time for Valentine’s Day!!
I will admit that lately I have had quite an obsession with vintage Christmas collectibles and of course vintage blue birds. The blue birds all started with a 1950s blue bird sugar jar I acquired more than a year ago and she was so cute with her big eyes, sweet face and flower in her hair that she was nicknamed ‘sugar chick’. I sold that sugar chick and then as time went on I really missed her and wished I would have kept her thus starting the obsession with finding another one. Over the year I was able to slowly find pieces from that same line and have managed to get my sugar chick back, matching creamer, teapot, and just this week the salt and pepper shakers. I have seen a cookie jar that belongs to the set so, I will keep an eye out for that. I am including a picture of my blue bird salt and pepper shakers and the blue bird teapot.
Now, onto vintage Christmas. I have always loved vintage Christmas collectibles from 1940s-1960s. The collectibles from the era might be referred to as ‘kitschy’ by many folks but to me, they have loads of charm and add that ‘special something’ to the holidays. So this year, I made sure to start my collecting early in the summer and have been able to add some amazing pieces (I will add pics soon) that include the vintage Lefton Candy Cane Kids, Lefton Christmas Girl Bells, Napco Christmas Headvases, Napco Angel Figurines, Napco Shopper Girls, Holt Howard Christmas Salt and Pepper Shakers, Holt Howard Pixies and of course the Lipper Mann Noel Candle Holders. Here I have included a picture of a vintage Christmas Lipper Mann Santa Claus & Mrs. Claus Sugar and Creamer set; I love their giant red noses and sweet faces.
What are you all collecting these days? I would love to hear from you!!
Vintage bluebird collectibles are really “hot” right now. It seems everywhere I look I am seeing vintage Lefton Bluebirds and vintage PY Bluebird figurines, salt and pepper shakers, cookie jars, etc…Here are a couple fantastic bluebird themed items that can be “everyday” items and they are cute and follow along the vintage bluebird theme. Love these! Details here for tote bag. Details here for t-shirt.
