Treasures and more Treasures.......

First I need to show you the wonderful little treasures that came in the mail the other day!  Lizzie Lu from LuLu Liz in La La Land sent me this because I was a runner-up in her giveaway!  

I have to say I hinted at getting these little tags she made up to put the lace on! I don't want to use the lace, they look so pretty just sitting in the bowl.

Next I have to show you some of the pictures of the goodies I got yesterday....

This is a little children's reader from the late 1800's, I love the color of it.

I just love these pictures, I'll have to scan some and share.

Look at this old bottle with most of the label still intact!  It actually is a clear bottle with liquid blueing in it.  I want to make sure I don't let that stopper come off!

This next piece made me think of  Carmelina over at Creative Carmelina .  She makes beautiful crocheted pieces, as well as many other creative things!  Carmelina,  I thought you might like the idea of the ribbon woven through this.  I can scan and send you a better picture if you like!

Can you believe that I picked this little picture up for a couple of dollars?  The frame was black until I started to wipe it down and realized what a pretty brown that it really was! Years of grunge!

This was another little bargain, I loved the swans and the complimentary frame.

Ok, and here was the splurge of the day!  This is an original French Engraving, and she is beautiful!  A nice large size too, just have to find the perfect place to hang her!

Well, this is a record for me as being the longest post I ever did!  I have many more things to show you, but that will have to wait for another time. 

I started to gather some little treasures for my giveaway, I will announce and start the giveaway on Monday.

Have a sunshiney day!!

  3. Hi Kim, I am really glad the lace got to you so quickly. Crazy postal services, I sent a little package to my mom in Germany at the same time, and it has not arrived yet!

  9. Hi Kim
    I have no problem with you putting skirts on your dressform pillows....I would love to see them. Love the little girl picture. I have one of those Mrs Stewarts bluing bottles too. I thought the bottle was blue. Mine has only a small amount of dried crystalized product left in the bottom, but the label is perfect. I just love mine!!
