Hello Ladies, and welcome to another Vintage Things Thursday, with our dear friend Suzanne over at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/2011/09/vintage-thingie-thursday-vintage-tea.html Well, hurricane Irene left her mark here in our basement. We got about 4" of water. Luckily, as it started coming in, we were able to quickly get most of the items up off the floor. Some things did get wet, but nothing much to speak of. It could have been a lot worse. Hubby decided he needed to water proof the basement, plus it needed a good cleaning. So, in a way, in was kind of a good thing, because now the work is getting done! Yey!! We have a partially finished basement, and some wooden built in cabinets on one side. While hubby was cleaning out the cabinets, tucked way under a 2x4, he found these tucked underneath! These are vintage party hats, probably from the 50's or 60's, along with this sweet little plastic basket. Aren't they adorable?
Of course hubby loved the fireman one, because he is the fire chief of our town. They are in really nice condition, and the colors bright. I can't beleive they are in such nice condition. We have lived in this house for 33 yrs, and they have been there all this time, and who knows how long before that. I thought they were such a great find! I plan on putting them on e-bay. Thanks for coming by by for a visit, and don't forget to visit Susanne for more vintage fun! Let me just say, that my heart goes out to all the people who suffered much damage from this hurricane.
Adding fall touches a bit at a time.....
