Thrifty Instant Ancestors

Since I didn't get to do any "real" thrifting this past weekend I thought I would share a find from the recent past.

There is an older lady near here that had been a collector and has a garage sale each year that is just to die for!!

I picked up several items from her, put since I was rearranging tonight I thought I would share just one.

You might remember my fabulous chippy dresser  from this post.

Well it has looked like this.024

And this



And this



Well most recently it looked like this


And after adding my instant ancestors


Here are a few more pictures of my picture




Believe it or not this fabulous vintage photo with the frame was only $3.00.  I picked this up in May during my birthday weekend.  I'm still amazed that I was able to get this for just $3.00 it is 14x16 inches.

Does anyone out there have any idea what era this may be from?  Also are these school uniforms or a children's choir?

  1. Love the display and the vingate photo with frame. What a great buy. Blessings, Vicky

  2. Just lovely girl...and from the looks of the suit the man has on I would say ca. 1920...hope you have a GREAT day my friend...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

  3. That is a great photo-I would love to know the vintage too.

    Lovely display Michelle.

    Best wishes,

  4. Trust me, children's choir robe. I have a photo of me wearing mine. I also have a lot of photos of folks I don't know, that I call instant relatives as well. Fun to decorate with. Have a great day.

  5. I am trying again! I like those egg cups, but I don't think I would be very good eating out of one! Someone somewhere had a good idea of a cool way to use them, and AND NOW I FORGET!!!

  6. Such a cute vignette!
    Love the nostalgia!
    Makes me wanna sing, "mi mi mi"


Please leave me a comment it really makes me smile!
