Great Antique Store Find...a vintage nightgown to go with my bed jacket!

Since I am now on winter break, I should theoretically be posting more often, right? I actually haven't been too lazy about making things, just about blogging about them. I am working on a crocheted gingerbread house that will hopefully be done soon. I am hoping to have it done by Christmas but we'll see... it is taking longer than expected. I've also got a couple of other projects going, so hopefully I will have something to show for those pretty soon.

This post isn't about something I made but something I bought at my favorite antiques place, the Main Street Collector's Mall in Milwaukie! Part of what I love about this place is the soda fountain, where their hand-mixed sodas are so much better than anything you could buy in a bottle or can. They also have lots of cool stuff, some of which I would consider antique or vintage, some of which I remember from my childhood (definitely not antique yet, haha). Their stuff can sometimes be expensive because it isn't a thrift store, but this nightgown was 50% off so I only paid $12.50 for it! I think it is so pretty and the pink and white will go perfectly with the bed jacket I just made.

Here is a picture of my cute new nightgown!
And here is a close-up of the pretty lace on the top.
I was hanging out at the Collector's Mall with Baby Brother Cat and we were just getting ready to leave when I saw the fabric peaking out of a basket. When I saw what it was and that it looked like it would fit me, I asked him to talk me out of it, lest I spend too much money. Then I saw the 50% off sign and decided it was worth it, and I am very happy I did!

Sweet dreams of pretty vintage things!
