Weekend Treasure Hunt

I was so excited when I came upon this vintage Odette Barsa lingere at a yard sale over the week end....what a find!     I was able to get a little background on the pieces from the lady having the sale.....they belonged to her mother in law that had just passed away and are from the 50's.    It is a four piece set and she had them marked individually but really wanted the set to stay together so she made me a great deal on the four pieces.....$10 for all.   I told her I would add them to the collection that I have of my mothers vintage lingere and always treasure them.

All the pieces are in excellent condition......

Look at the ribbon work......gorgeous!

Ecru lace over pink sating......

There is a long gown and robe......a short robe.....and a bed jacket.

I also picked up a set of pillow cases that are the same color.....I think her mother in law must have loved this shade of pink.

Here is another set of vintage pillow cases that I picked up at the same sale.

Brass candelabra......

Believe sign and sweet lamb

lovely plate and saucer

Hobnail milk glass piece  that will be good as new when I get a screw for it

My new vintage lingere went straight to my closet in the master bedroom......

There are two closets in the bedroom and I have one filled with vintage clothing and the other holds my every day clothing.  H has a big double closet in the guest room right across the hall for his stuff.    

Here is their new home......

I am working in the hallway again today....can't wait to show you the progress!

Please visit my side bar to see "Where I Party"  and stop by and visit a few of these great blogs!


  1. Oh how lovely, you sure can find good stuff/things. smiles---Have a beautiful week ahead, smiles.

  2. Oh my word, what lovely treasures you have discovered this time, Penny! what a joy it is to fill one's life with such frugal beauties. Well done - absolutely gorgeous.

  3. Penny,
    That lingerie set is beautiful!!I am embarrassed to say that I never heard of the brand. They look gorgeous in your closet filled with vintage clothing. Great finds!!

  4. Holy cow. That is such a cute closet! I am just amazed by what you found for almost nothing. I am sure it was comforting for the seller to know her mother in laws items were going to a good home that would cherish them as much as she did.

  5. So pretty and feminine. I just love that pale pink with the ecru and the pieces look lovely hanging in your closet.

    You got some other lovely finds too.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

  6. Wow Penny---that hobnail milk-glass plate would make the most awesome clock. Don't you Think? It would certainly be more seen then stored for party use.

    And the lingerie, my grandmother had a piece or two. So beautiful, something we dont' do as we schlump around in shorts and tees, and seldom anything pretty. But then lace is itchy, LOL.

    Fun post-great finds- thanks, Sandi
