~Vintage Ironing Board~

I went to the Vintage Marketplace at the Oaks in June this year.
Rita Reade of Mammabellarte puts on the best Vintage Marketplace I've ever gone to.
It's in Fallbrook, California.
I bought this beautiful antique ironing board from Sara of Sweet Magnolias Farm.
You can't find the old wooden ones anymore. 
So when I spotted this one I knew I had to have it.
I love how she made the ironing board cover with the floral material.
She makes the cutest towels.
I had to get the clothespin holder.
I love how she uses lace and adds her perfect touch to all her items.
She even added lace to the cover. I found the old iron at a thrift store and stamped some clothespins. 
I found this old shopping cart at 
Urban Barn in Escondido.
Now all I need is my clothesline.
 I'm working on my husband to put one up.
I know just the place.
Can't wait for the next show in Fallbrook
 on Sept. 7th & 8th.


  1. What a beautiful collection Jody! I can't wait to see your clothesline. Thank you for mentioning our show. Ciao Rita

  2. Jody, it is a beautiful piece and I so adore ironing, especially vintage linens. Olive

  3. Beautiful !! what i see

  4. Your ironing board and fabric cover are sweet, as are the towel and clothespin holder! I LOVE hanging clothes outdoors to dry. Can't beat the fresh smell.

  5. My, what lovely finds. They make doing laundry look like a delightful adventure. I have a clothesline in my backyard and I love hanging sheets and quilts out there. It's great for swimsuits and towels, too. When I was fifteen we loved in Vista for a winter, while my father was seeing a doctor in San Diego . . . sounds like you live pretty close in that area. I remember it as being very pretty country. Have a great day and thanks for the sweet visit to my blog, Connie :)

  6. That is the cutest laundry set up I have ever seen...many people do not even iron a thing, so that make an ironing board even more vintage. Love your pics. Nice to see you.

  7. Oh, my!!!! I love this! I am the Ironing Queen, so I would love to have these pretties in my laundry room! :D
