Joining Vintage Black Friday! Don't Forget to Join in my "Four Seasons Giveaway" for 300 Followers

Vintage Black Patent Leather Hat Box

Family Photo Albums from the 1920's
Welcome to my Vintage Black Friday  post hosted by the French Cupboard . Today I have for your viewing pleasure, an old hat box that I found some time back in an antique mall for $7.00, which I thought was a great find as I like to store my laces and trims in items like this, though not shown, this one has a beautiful powder blue lining, the only problem is the zipper is starting to separate from one side just from age, if anyone can think of a great way to repair so it will still zip, let me know as there isn't much fabric to re-attach it to. The second vintage black are two Family photo albums that belonged to my parents when they were young. Some of the photos I'm not sure who the people are but must have been friends or relatives of my parents and then some are of my parents from when they were young. Really great originals and I will probably scan them and eventually use them in type of design. At least there won't be any copyright issues with using these photos!  I plan on restoring the albums so they will hold up longer as the larger one is getting very worn. I hope you enjoy this post and who knows maybe one day I'll actually get some vintage looking creation done with some of these treasures. I'm working in that direction but have spent quite a bit of time refining my computer/blogging skills. Until then I'll see you the first of next month for another Vintage Black friday and hope you will click on the link and visit all the other Vintage Black Friday participants. By the way I'm having a reach "300 followers" Giveaway so if you leave a comment on that particular post, become a follower, blog about the Giveaway and post my button on your sidebar,  your name will be included in the Four Seasons Giveaway for 300 followers. For each item done you will have your name included in a chance so that gives you up to 4 chances. There will eventually be 4 items included in this Giveaway. They will be posted as time goes on.

I don't believe many wear hats today like our mothers and grandmothers did... myself..I look rather silly in a hat.
