Hey folks! I hope everyone is having a lovely, relaxing weekend! I thought I’d pop in and share a few things I’ve found this week while wandering around the web.

First up are these adorable deer found on SheWalksSoftly and made by Violetpie.

I discovered this darling book jewelry on Reading is Fashionable. Earrings, pins, necklaces, and hair accessories can all be found at BookEarrings.

Have you heard of the Vintagemobile. This old school bus travels around the Dallas area selling vintage clothing. I so want to visit this bus! I found the Vintagemobile on a recently discovered treasure of a blog, Gypsy Dust Vintage. You really should check it out!

Speaking of Gypsy Dust Vintage, it was there that I discovered the lovely illustrations of Inslee.

I am also excited to learn about the collaboration between milliner Albert Swanepoel and Target. Can’t wait for these to hit the shelves!

Ever wondered if you are a 21st Century Romantic?  Take this fun quiz on a bloomsbury life to find out.  While you are there check out the rest of her blog.  I think you’ll like it.

That’s all for now. I have more goodies I can’t wait to share, so see ya later.

Attic Treasures

Hello and welcome to a new, old feature here on Butterfly Dreams. I love sharing the treasures I find at flea markets and thrift stores. Coming up with a different name for each post of this nature is not so much fun. As a result I have decided to introduce a new/old feature called Attic Treasures where I will share photos of my latest treasures. Here you will find all sorts of vintage treasures and will have all the fun of exploring grandma’s attic or in my case grandpa’s garage. My grandpa loved yard sales and auctions. He bought all kinds of stuff and then had his own garage sales. His garage was always full of stuff. It was a grand adventure to dig in all the boxes and see what treasures I could find. I am still treasure hunting today. Most recently, I uncovered this pretty alarm clock.

I just love the colors and it’s perfect on my bedside table.

Over the summer I found several treasures while visiting my mom. One of those was this very pretty, glamourous lipstick holder/mirror. I carry it in my make up bag and feel so elegant and glamourous whenever I use it.

For awhile now I have been searching for a red beaded necklace. I was thrilled to find this one in my favorite booth. It’s perfect.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this maiden voyage of Attic Treasures! There will be more to come! Happy Hunting!!!!

I stumbled upon the delightful vintage shop, Monday Pie, while working on another post. There are so many fun, whimiscal things to see in this lovely little shop. I am enamored with the cute vintage art prints. There are so many from which to choose. I also love the Russian nesting dolls. They are so pretty with their bright colors and sweet faces. There is plenty to ooh and ahh over at Monday Pie, so please stop in for a visit!

And finally this lovely cupcake stand made using old records. I am truly excited because it does no harm to the records themselves. This cute idea was found on Oh Happy Day!

What exciting notions are you finding around the web?
