Vintage Finds and Christmas Drama
...leads to a very dramatic looking table doesn't it? Pretty, but an oh so dramatic Christmas scene. And what would Christmas be without drama, it always seems to show up at some point.
Anyway, on to the main point of this post. A couple of weeks ago my aunty/shop lady challenged me to go on a hunt for vintage items to start contributing items other than my quilled creations to our little shop. I did so last week, and would you believe the items sold?? Being the goose that I am I neglected to actually take photos of the items before they went to the shop :s
So, given that it seems I have an eye for this vintage finding thing, yesterday I went off and did it again.
The vase full of flowers is not for sale obviously, I just thought my dramatic table was a good backdrop for the photos.
I love etched glass, and this bowl with its little flowers was too pretty to pass up.
No one can have too many tiny vases in my opinion, and I can see this sitting on someone's windowsill with a few wild flowers sitting in it. I added the little rose to the bottom for decoration.
This little nun thinks its all such a scandal! I realise that being a religious figurine it may take just the right buyer to find her a home, but the look on her face made me giggle and I just couldn't resist her.
This little china vase is charming, and almost matches the next item...
