Latest Antique Finds and more!

Yes, I have been at it again! The lamp is not one of my latest antique finds but the blue hand painted globe is.
I had been on the look out for quite some time now and was thrilled when I saw this one at a local estate auction. It blends in perfectly with the blue in my ebonized frame...



and it goes so nicely with the blue sky of my ceiling mural.


                              

This is the not so pretty reproduction shade that used to be on the lamp.

                              

Below is what I bought from the miniature museum, a craft store down the road from it and a miniature shop that was going out of business.


Don't you just love the sideboard? I have not found a life sized one for my dining room yet but this one for the doll's house will do just fine for now! :)


And that is it for now. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit, I really appreciate it. Have a wonderful first week of December!

  1. You have a gorgeous home. The ceiling is breathtaking. So many beautiful treasures in this post. I always look forward to your updates because you always include miniatures too! This week, I'm hoping to find some time after work to start getting the plantation style dollhouse decorated for Christmas. Happy December 1st!

  5. I enjoyed visiting your smalls today, I have a special spot in my heart for doll houses and furniture. The sideboard is very nice, the dolls are lovely. I got so caught up in the little's I almost forgot to mention how beautiful the lamp looks now that you changed the shade. It matches very nicely with the rest of your home, lovely. Shelf clocks are a family favourite.

  7. Oh darling, darling, DARLING minies. Oh, loved looking at them. That tiny jack-in-the-box! Fabulous. Sooooo adorable, one and all.

    Gina, the lamp is gorgeous, too. Thanks so much for sharing. Susan p.s. If you EVER get to Tucson, Arizona, they have the most fabulous miniature museum you'll ever encounter in your LIFE! Check out their website too. Fabulous.

  8. Your ceiling is stunning! Wow!!! I love your clock collection, really lovely. I have a shelf clock but it's not ebonized like that. My fave of your minis is the little bag of ice. Thanks for sharing at my "Olde" party :) -Dawn @ We Call It Junkin.com

    Hi Gina....We both love anything Victorian! My old-fashioned hanging lamp is one of my faves. Found it at an estate sale. It's cracked cranberry glass and is just perfect for the pink living room.

    Your home looks beautiful! Susan

  14. Wow ! and Wow !,
    The lamp is the perfect fine. I love it. All your clocks are to die for . I also love clocks. Its just something about them. The very old are the best. I also try to buy a lot of min's, but not for doll houses. I use them when I make my theater dolls. I just love your bear family. That is the cutest .Although...I saw two very precious tiny dolls. I just love your room and I love this blog.
    When you have time, I would like for you to visit Sherry and me. We have a special post for Dec. it is a long post , but I hope it will be a treat for you,
    Merry Christmas, with all the love and best wishes for a Holiday Season,

  18. oh my goodness you have so much going on...i love the bears the most, I guess, but your lamp in the beginning reminds me of one at my grandmothers years ago...Not the base, but the top globe portion.

    Your site is always fun to visit! :)
