A Bit of Vintage

I love vintage stuff - One of my absolute favorite things to do is dig around at estate sales and thrift shops, looking for interesting treasures. Lately I've been looking for old books with old-fashioned illustrations, and I made all my Mother's Day cards using pictures from a 1950 kids' book, and old buttons.


I wondered how I could incorporate vintage into La Chapina while maintaining the Latin American theme of my shop. Then I found two old books that fit right in! One, from 1942, is a children's book about Peru. The other, from the 1950s, is a Mexican cookbook published by a company that made Mexican food products.
