I'm still alive!

I haven't been really blogging much since October usually I'm on top of that because to me it is therapy. I have been busy decorating for fall/halloween having thanksgiving and decorating for christmas.

Merry christmas to all by the way! I hope you all got lots of lovely goodies! I did not ask for anything vintage this year from
Santa I have so much already! My Pyrex collection has cooled down...I have not bought Pyrex in awhile probably months!! I have most of what I want already. Now I'm on to fire king jadite. My husband got me a Bose system!! I have been wanting one for some time now and there it was wrapped under the tree! I did however sneak in a few vintage things I bought for myself for christmas. I bought a vintage 1950 or 1960s blonde mink cape in mint condition. And a pair of emerald green dangling rhinestone earrings from the 50s.
And also to add to my collection blue heaven juice glasses!! I will add photos tomorrow.

What did you guys get for christmas?

Fire King Jadeite-Ever find in a thrift?

I have always wanted to collect Fire King Jadeite. I have never had the opportunity to find any at a reasonable price...they are very expensive!
I have seen them at antique stores and on eBay but never in a thrift store. I did however find the Fire King tulip mixing bowl for $3.99! 
Has anyone ever found the Jadeite in a thrift store? and if so whats your story?

MAGIC stain remover for vintage tablecloths!!!

Don't you just love vintage tablecloths? I DO! Don't you love the graphics, and the beautiful colors on them? I DO! The different themes or floral patterns are so great, but do you love the horrible stains on this beautiful linens? I DON'T! 
Often you see vintage tablecloth's with stains on certain areas of the cloth or all over the tablecloth and it looks like it is doomed and headed for the tablecloth graveyard.....but I will NEVER turn down a tablecloth that has stains on them EVER!

Why you may ask? I was researching and researching to find a way to get these horrible stains gone! 
Some people said clorox, but other people said the color would come out..maybe? 
Some others said BOROX, but others said it didn't quite work..
Some said BIZ 
And one women said TILEX! Yes!!! Tilex! For Mold & Mildew.
It contains bleach but doesn't seem as harsh as the regular Clorox.

It works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hurray!

I found it on this women's blog, thank you thank you thank you!!!!
You can see her blog HERE

I found this awesome 60's tablecloth at a tag sale this past weekend. I got it for $10 but it had such horrible stains on it...I tried stain remover advanced, didn't work. I went to the store and bought BIZ, I left it soaking in with a cup of BIZ for about 1-2 hours...your suppose to leave over night but I do not have a washing machine in my apartment so I just put 1 gallon of water in a bucket in the bathtub and 1 cup of BIZ and the tablecloth....the BIZ how ever did get the stains to fade, they were more suddle.

The TILEX worked like magic, I swear! All I did was spray the tilex all over the tablecloth, first try a little patch to see if the color stays...which most of them do, back then they made the tablecloths to where the color would stay and not turn. 

I then let it sit for a minute or so and then rinsed it off in the bucket with warm water and used OXY CLEAN color boost detergent..washed and washed that (I do not know how many women did this back then but this is hard work!)

and then soaked it in hot water and washed and washed.
I put it back on cold water and washed all of the detergent out and my husband had to wring it out because I was so tired by then! All the stains gone! And the color as bright as ever! I hung it out on the cloths liner and it is currently drying out in the wind! =)

I will post my photos of it when it is finally dry!
