A few vintage finds ~

I found a few good sales on friday and I just love it when that happens. Like these sweet little lady planters , I just love them so these I think I'll keep ....
This one is missing her hand that was actually taped to the backside and in her hand she is actually holding a mirror which I am going to glue back on .Even with her flawes she is still lovely ~

And one more with a little flaw but even so I just love all these vintage plant containers .

And these dainty 1920's vintage opera glasses from PARIS . Such a rare find and so french chic ~ These however I added to my shop , I'll proabably regret it later but you just can't keep everything! Stamped with the makers name and PARIS. I love the patina of these.

Along with this pale lavender ,almost looks pink vintage lace dress, this is just says southern bell to me~ Very femanine and flirty ,would be pretty displayed .A lacey shear top and the back of this is so pretty!~ Layers and layers of ruffles..... see below


I wish this would have fit me becasuse I really would wear it if the occasion was right !

More generous ruffles and sheer fabric .I just love vintage clothing especially pretty things with lots of little details such as this.....

And would you believe I found two vintage lace shoe bag holders ?? I did in one weekend! These are perfect for holding all your crafty goodies in your studio for extra inspiration! I love and use mine! Both available in the Shop! Anywho it's late here and I am sleepy , I will post pictures of the barn sale next time!!

Great finds! Did you do well on the sales as well? Love to see photos of the barn. Have a great week! I think you can expect your package starting tuesday, that is tomorrow(!) but that would be very fast though.

What amazing finds..Love all the pretty figurines...All that lace is just gorgeous...Hope all is well..

Aaaawww those little figurines are so adorable. And I can see a hole for placing the flower :-) How cute is that?

The lace shoe holder I would never guess as a shoe holder. Maybe for something else, like jewelry and like you said craft things but not shoes. This is just so delicate. Ok, maybe ballet shoes then? :-)
