Blogland Slumber Party ~ Vintage Treasures

Happy Birthday Phyllis! I am thrilled to join your Blogland Slumber Party. I have my Pillow, PJs, Teddy Bears, Treats and a good story all ready ! You can join the fun at

The fun starts on March 10th. I needed to post a bit early.

So let's start with the treats !!!! I hope you like chocolate : )

and a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate perhaps . . . .

This 1920's vintage bonnet is a beauty ! You can wear it if you want, LOL.

Some Edwardian Bloomers . . . . don't laugh too loud.

and of course my antique teddy bear!

I brought along a few extra quilts in case its really cold !

It doesn't feel like Spring yet in Canada.

So . . . . pull up your pillow and listen to a spooky story. It's true even ! I have been told by visitors to our home that the guest bedroom is . . . well . . . occupied.

. . . it can be rather spooky for some people at night.

Did you see that?

What's so scary about pink, ruffles and vintage clothing ?

Right there . . . . on the left side of the picture . . .

Looks to me like the dog can see it!

I think it looks tall and white and stands near the foot of the bed!!!

IT IS tall . . . and white . . . .and located near the foot of the bed !!!!!

It's an Edwardian Tea Dress that belonged to Sarah Alice Jackson

1854 - 1937


Do you think my guests see the Dress Form or do they see Sarah ??????

You'll have to sleep over and let me know!

Sweet Dreams !

What a wonderful time at the slumber party. The sleeping bonnet was the hit of the party! Not to mention the ghost story. Great job. Please come over to my house to play!


Where in Canada do you live? I spent 10 years living north of Toronto and I had my dughter there. We are all Canadian citizens! We miss it, but not the weather!
