pretty vintage floral dinnerware

I just love these. Forget-Me-Nots against a white background...such happy plates for the kitchen table.

 

 

I have a dinnerware obsession and I love plate patterns. This particular pattern is called "Clear Day" and it was designed by Ben Siebel for Mikasa in the 70's. He designed many, many other plate patterns, but this one ranks up there as one of my favorites.

 

 

I'm selling these in my etsy shop--sometimes when I find fun thrifted treasures, I just have to pick them up even though I can't justify holding onto them myself. 

 

Baker Road | Holiday Vintage

I love to hunt down treasures in thrift stores, yard sales and flea markets. Lately in my ventures I've been coming across various gems for Christmas and the holidays. Nothing warms my heart more than finding something that reminds me of Christmases when I was a kid, so along the way I began specificaly picking up those items. I recently thought to share this warmth with the (etsy) world.

Thus, Baker Road holiday vintage was born. I've listed my findings for sale in an online shop, so feel free to browse the fun and few items, although I have more to add (including some really fun vintage paper ephemera-you know that paper goods are my weakness).

Each item in some way sparked a memory of the Christmas decorations from my childhood. I try to reference the memory when applicable in the description, so each item has its own special story. Here are the first few items I've put up.

I want to share one of my recent purchases with you. My childhood friend Shayna opened Miss Louise Vintage on Etsy not too long ago, and I've been constantly eyeing up the items she picks at thrift stores, flea markets, auctions and the like. She has such savvy style and a great eye for vintage. When she posted this gorgeous handmade apron, I knew I had to have it. 

 

 


I had never worn an apron in my life until I began working at a bakery. Then it became necessary to wear one every single day. Pretty aprons started catching my eye, but this one is supremely lovely. I absolutely love the vintage florals and the yellow/marigold hues. And, as you can see by the last picture, it's reversible! The reverse side has a sweet little teardrop-shaped pocket. To top it off, Shayna packaged it up in the cutest wrapping, making it a treat to receive in the mail.

 

 

I can't wait to wear this to work--the perfect summery apron. Please check out Miss Louise Vintage. The prices are so reasonable and you'll be inspired. Thanks again for the lovely apron, Shayna! xo
