Last of the 127 Treasures ~ Until Next Year, Anyway!! :)

I was happy to find this bunch of chandelier crystals, as I still have a couple of chandeliers and lamps to redo....


My mother has a small collection of head vases, but this is the first one I've bought for myself. It is a miniature one..... I got it for a very good deal.



I thought about using her in my craft area, to hold small paint brushes or such ~~ you should see how many *clever* things I've designated for that purpose ~ I love interesting things to hold my craft supplies, but I do tend to go overboard!


The salt & peppers are tiny too.......

The seller had a bunch of *single* salts, that were sooooo pretty. I collect orphan salts/peppers...... but she was asking $10 per piece, so I passed. She did give me a deal on this set though; and the colors are perfect for my cottage kitchen!



I have a *thing* for pretty switchplates....... I will share them with you someday (I have all different sorts of them to "go" with each room)...... These two above actually match the vintage double one I have in our bathroom, but I have no more *empty* singles...... I cannot decide whether to part with them or switch them out with ones I have in other rooms. We don't have a lot of single switches in our home, do you?

This one will go in the living room....... it's not porcelain like the others, but the image will go perfectly in there, and it's hard (for me anyway) to find decorative triple plates.




This little sweetie with a parasol was found at one of the first sales we stopped at. I love how her parasol and skirt have real vintage lace. I might have to give her a little posy bouqet like her friend that I've shown you before.....



Uh-oh, do I feel a collection coming on? Yikes!!

Speaking of collections, I'm parting with some of my pretty embroidered linens...... I hope to have photos of them to share with you in the next day or two. (and yes, I'm still keeping a TON of them :)

Hope you are all having a blessed week!

Lovely goodies! Your trip was well worth it, even though it was hot!

I'm glad to see some yellow roses on the salt & pepper shakers! They blend well with your soft pinks, blues and greens!

Becca, Everything is so soft and delicate and cottagey looking, just beautiful! What area did you shop the sale? I was in Jamestown, TN. I'll try to post some of my finds over the weekend.

I love your head vase. We have a nice indoor flea market in my hometown of Lubbock Texas and the owner of the buildng has a collection f 500 head vases. I fell in love with them. I wanted to start a collection about ten years ago but my goodness, those vases are expensive! I like the one's that look like a young Lucille Ball. When I do go back to Lubbock to visit my parents, I always make a trip to the flea market to look at my favorite vases.
