Some orange and yellow on a grey Wednesday.  Just added this cute little orange Turkish coffee maker to the shop. Great for making Turkish coffee of course, (provided you know how to make it!) but also for melting butter or chocolate.

Love these peachy and yellow pillowcases for fall...these are the last sets too!

A few banners left also, right here...

Thanks for having a look!

After the rush of school starting in September, it's always apples that herald the nice things about fall.  We went apple picking last week, and now have tons of apples to transform into a pie, applesauce, and to snack on after lunch.

This week I'm getting to work on some fall clothes peg dolls for the shop and upcoming shows in November and December!  Suddenly they don't seem so far off...

I found these vintage Cathrineholm bowls this summer and couldn't wait to list them in the shop.  I love the green zebra stripes.  My mom had a set of these bowls when I was growing up with orange stripes, in fact I think she still has them!  This set is sturdy and well loved.  I priced them a bit lower than other online dealers have them listed for, because they have a bit of wear and tear on the insides, but they are valuable and highly collectible.  And just very attractive and useful!

Large size is here.
Small size is here.

Monday again, and it's officially fall!

Just put these pillows in the shop for fall/winter.  All 100% soft wool pillow covers in herringbone tweed, plaids, and tartan.

Also updated my jillbent.com site for fall.

And a little vintage shop update coming on Wednesday too.

In the meantime, knitting away on a new set of cowls, in new patterns and colors, hoping to hit the shop in early October.

Just added this cozy and rustic fall vintage collection to my shop.  Even though it's technically still summer, the nights and mornings are cool and crisp around here and I'm ready for fall.  I can't wait to go apple picking and if I can, to drag my family out for an autumn hike somewhere where the leaves are changing and the seasons feel on the cusp of something new...

My personal favorite from this collection is this big, round, gathering basket (middle, bottom row).  I've never seen one like this!  It's really sturdy and has the perfect vintage patina to it.  I imagine it being filled with apples, yarn, blankets...or any other fall collection you can dream up!

Right now, I'm in production mode getting ready for the holiday season, shows, etc., so I'll be posting new things in the shop frequently (after such a relaxing and lazy summer away from the shop).

Thanks as always, for stopping by and having a look around.

I just updated the shop with new vintage items for fall!  I love this first collection: a mix of antique and vintage enamelware in cheery reds and blues, some antique ironstone and the lovely sailor dolls!  Thanks for having a look...I'll be posting a new collection of vintage finds each week this fall.
