Vintage Goodies

It has been awhile since I've posted anything! This is my first post of September...and it's almost the middle of the month!!!
I haven't really had the time to thrift lately, but I have picked up a few things here and there. 

 Isn't this cherries tin the cutest?! I picked it up at a thrift store for .50.
 This lantern was just staring me down as I made my way through an antique mall. I finally just placed him in my buggy and realized I was his new adoptive mother! 2.50.
These playing cards were gifted to me by my Husbands Uncle. He knows I am an avid vintage hound and brought these to me. They look early to mid 60's to me. What do you think?
I found this cross-stitch piece at a thrift store for .50. It had a horrible frame - black and brass, ick! And the matte was an ugly off white. I gave them both a paint job. I think it turned out sweet! 
 How totally adorable is this picture? I found this at the same thrift store I found the cross-stitch. It was .50 as well. I also gave this pic a paint job. The original frame color was a chipped up white. 

I hope everyone is doing well! I will try not to stay away so long again! :)
Have a wonderful and blessed Wednesday!

I love your cherry tin! I often find cute (and cheap) tins at the Goodwill. I don't feel guilty buying them because I can always use them to organize my art stuff.
That was sweet of your husbands Uncle to give you the cards!
Hope you're having a great week :)

Hi There! I was so happy to see a comment left by you on my blog as it gives me the chance to visit your adorable blog again. I loved your previous post. Boy am I slow to "get it". I didn't know that people were collecting Pyrex to display, LOL, I thought they were collecting it to use! Now I feel really goofy that I use mine everyday and am constantly trying to get it back when I send something in it home with my children. Love your cherry tin. I have a set of MS elves ready to come your way if you would like them. You can e-mail me your address at Elizabeth
