Here’s my favorite vintage valentine.  You all are just my TYPE!  Happy Valentines Day IG friends! #vintagevalentines #vintagevalentinecards #valentinesday #vintagevalentine #typewritervalentine #therustytypewriter
We’ve been discussing things we love this week.  On the list of things I have from my father’s mother, this patchwork bear ranks pretty highly.  He represents her style perfectly. A mix of well loved but classy patterns and always ready for a hug.  I don’t know if she made him, but that doesn’t really matter to me.  It’s the memories of her I remember every time I see him that makes him special to me.  #vintagevalentinesday #vintagestuffedbear #patchworkbear #vintagebear #familyheirloom #thingsilove #therustytypewriter

The happy hoarder theme for the beginning of February is Love❤️ibles and that means 💕💕and more 💕! Ever since I started collecting I have been drawn to paper. Who knows why people save the things they do, but I’m sure glad they did! Labels, advertisements, napkins, wrapping paper, letters, photos, and of course, cards. I love seeing other people’s writing. I think typography is a big part of what draws me to ephemera, along with illustration. So naturally Valentines are a big hit with me. Until recently I had a box (really several boxes, all over the place, and not at all organized 🙄) for each season with small items that are hard to display. Now with the addition of her ladyship (read sexy white cabinet) I can safely display all my goodies and boy does it make me happy! I have love letters of my own stashed away from when hubs was in basic training as well, but they stay in their album, protected for the future. Who knows, maybe some other thrifty friend will find them someday and keep them like I keep other people’s! What kind of Valentines Day goodies do you hoard? #happy 😊hoarder #vintagevalentines  #mccoypottery  #heartbasket  #valentinesdoll  #vintagecaketopper  #valentinescards  #vintagevalentinecards  #vintagevalentine  #curiocabinet  #ephemera  #vintageephemera  #vintagetypography  #therustytypewriter 
Hearts, flowers, and McCoy. I wanted to share this 1940’s lily bud planter before I go planting something in it! It’s rainy here today, and we’re out of coffee 😫 so I think I’ll go in search of some grocery store bulbs and some grounds.  #mccoypottery #mccoylove #mccoyplanter #usapottery #vintagepottery #therustytypewriter
3 things to stop a vintage-loving gal’s heart on the big day: Parisian chocolates, velvet heart pincushions, and millinery flowers! You really can’t go wrong with vintage (and I’ve been on a hat kick lately!)

We don’t normally do jewelry on purpose. Not on holidays, anniversaries, or birthdays. But when the hubs gave me free reign in Jared’s as a surprise for my 30th I wasn’t about to say no!  Just like him, these earrings are an A+++ in my book ✨✨✨Someone asked me if they were estate jewelry, and I said, “well they will be some day!”. Bonus, I took my birthday cash to the antique mall and got two of the tiniest, most adorable jewelry caskets EVER.  Just look at that yummy green velvet 😍. #besthusbandaward #jewelrycasket #vintagejewelrybox #diamondearrings #surprisejewelry #wewenttojareds #therustytypewriter

I bought this pretty little box at the flea market eons ago. I thought it was a card box (see last pic) but it actually had a puzzle inside. Similar colors, so I figured “eh, must be a puzzle for all occasions”. Nope. 😂. Swipe to see what was actually inside and ogle at the ridiculous piece shapes. I thought maybe 20 minutes to do it. Nope 1.5 hours later 🤔. Just look at that corner piece! #vintagepuzzle  #cardsforalloccasions  #vintagecardbox  #vintagetoys  #vintagegames  #laughoftheday  #fleamarketfinds  #puzzlingpuzzle  #therustytypewriter 
Spotlight on: Jardinieres.  I spend a lot of time committing images of McCoy pieces I *don’t* have to memory.  I stick my face in my collectors book at least three times a week and pore over it like a kid collecting Pokémon cards (😂). I like knowing when the lines were produced, what colors were made, and how many different sizes there are (because everything is best in multiples). This helps me know a piece when I see it in the wild.  I definitely want to share my McCoy more often this year and to give a little information when I do.  So, jardinieres. These two aqua are my favorite because they are OLD. 1930’s, and you can tell by the glaze. It’s just different from the 40’s/50’s aqua. The two white pieces are 1950’s and the glaze is thicker, and a tiny bit whiter than the earlier white. Clockwise from top left we have quilted diamond, basketweave, (unnamed leaf, some people call it lily), and swallows patterns.  Check out my stories today for more info, comparisons, and to see the book I love so dearly!  #magpiemonthly #yayformagpies #collections #mccoypottery #mccoylove #mccoyjardiniere #thingsicollect #vintagepottery #shareyourknowledge #yesihoardmccoy #onlyaquaandwhiteallowed #exceptthatpurpleone #therustytypewriter

I imagine these two getting hitched in Vegas. A slightly disheveled pageant girl and a portly, dazed little butler make a hilarious Valentine’s Day elopement couple. Everyone hopes the height difference is mostly shoes 👠 and that Mr. Butler’s eyebrows grow back straight after his kitchen accident 🔥. We wish them both the best in their hurried nuptials 😂. #vintagevalentines #vintagecelluloiddoll #celluloiddoll #vintagevalentinedoll #butlerdoll #misstasteefreez #vintagecelluloid #therustytypewriter

The best thing about being absolutely unapologetic about what you love is that eventually you start receiving gifts that people know you’ll cherish. These embroidered silk souvenirs are from France, picked up in 1918 by my husband’s great-grandfather during WWI.  They’ve been held onto by his granddaughter for years and she shared them with us a while back. I was flabbergasted to receive them as a present at my party last night, and now I’ll cherish them as a piece of family history for many years to come.  Also, check out my stories for the fabulous mahogany curio cabinet gifted to me by my Aunt! #frenchsilk #wwi #vintagefrenchembroidery #vintagesouvenir #frenchembroidery #warsouvenir #familyheirloom #therustytypewriter

A surprise adventure, a big bash, antiques and horses planned for tomorrow and I’m welcoming the start of a new decade in my life. I won’t tell you which, it’s a banned word 🙊, I’ll only say it’s the first anniversary of my 29th birthday. And it’s shaping up to be a great celebration. Happy Friyay! #vintagebirthday #magpieethelcreation #ranunculus #vintagebirthdaycard #therustytypewriter
You may remember around this time last year, I went on the hunt for matte white McCoy pottery. The hunt was stubborn and sent only aqua McCoy my direction. You see, tomorrow is my birthday. And that calls for McCoy hunting in my book. Apparently aqua McCoy for my birthday is going to be a regular thing. A literal armload of it. I’m totally okay with that. Ps, check out my stories for the fabulous home I visited to find these lovelies. #thankgodforcraigslist #aquamccoy #mccoypottery #mccoylove #usapottery #nelsonmccoy #bigbirthday #thequestisthebest #therustytypewriter

It’s Monday which means I’ve spent my morning chopping up squid and feeding sharks. So naturally I smell of fish (just a bit) which means my dog can’t get enough of me 😂. This little guy is a tad more polite (should we call him Tad?) and refrains from licking my fingers nonstop. His colors make him a perfect addition to my Valentine’s Day display. Make sure you swipe to see his chicken butt 😳 where some of the “real fur” has worn down. Also PSA: next Monday is the first #magpiemonthly  if you haven’t heard. Hosted by @starry_sky_farm and @ourgentlemadness post on the first Monday of the month. So somebody remind me to post lol 🤦🏼‍♀️. #originalfurtoys  #furtoydogs  #miniaturedogtoys  #valentinedog  #vintagefurtoy  #vintagetoys  #germantoy  #vintagegermantoy  #therustytypewriter 
I can’t tell if these Cupid seals are giggling, biting their nails, or just plain confused but I’m going with blowing a kiss! It’s definitely how I feel about my love this week. He picked us all up from a birthday stumble last night, then there was the cabinet he went back for earlier, plus he’s planning the details for my birthday at the end of this week! Hands up if your behind the scenes support is as fab as mine 🙋🏼‍♀️. Happy Sunday! #paperseals #vintageseals #valentines #vintagevalentines #vintagecupid #ephemera #valentinesephemera #besthusbandever #therustytypewriter #embossedseals #germanpaper

It didn’t take long for me to decide that the beautiful cabinet will hold curiosities and smalls that would normally not get much attention.  Exhibit A: this recent valentine find. It’s probably my most favorite valentine now, and I have quite a few. Alice in Wonderland scared me quite a bit as a child, but as an adult I enjoy the quirkiness of the outlandish story.  I never could quite get over what happens to the oysters. They’re just so darn cute. But a valentine with a walrus? Now that’s something I can get behind!  #vintagevalentine #thecarpenterandthewalrus #vintagevalentines #aliceinwonderland #carpenterandthewalrus #curiocabinet #ephemera #vintagecards #therustytypewriter

There’s a new love in town and she’s got the works! A glass front door, old brass turn knobs, and a closed in bottom for invisible storage! I’ve long wanted a medical cabinet, but they are wayyyyy out of my price range. This old gal has similar attributes, but is more primitive which fits my style better. The best hubs in the world picked her up the day after I bought her (she wouldn’t fit in my car). Now all I have to do is decide where she will live, and what to display on her shelves. Happy early birthday to me 🎁 🎉 🎂! #vintagecabinet #burningbridgeantiques #vintagemedicalcabinet #primitivecabinet #brassknobs #birthdaypresent #shesabeaut #newoldfurniture #therustytypewriter

Anyone have extensive metallurgy experience? This satin lined jewelry box gives me all the feels but its lid has detached from the hinges. Certainly I don’t mind using it this way, but I’d love to fix it.  The creamy aged satin makes a great backdrop for my sparkly paste pieces!

I dropped a friend off at the airport early yesterday morning. She was on her way to Grand Cayman, and I was like “take me with you 🙏🏻”. The weather swings here are driving me crazy. Also I could use a good beach day right around this time of year. Alas, I am still in Maryland. But that’s ok because Sundays are for antiques and finding more matte white McCoy like this vase I bought over the summer in Adamstown. Who’s with me?
