It has been a while since I last posted and I have been having trouble figuring out what to post so since Independence Day is coming up soon I decided to do a quick little something for the occasion. I am not feeling too creative with my words today just in my decorating. So here is a little red, white and blue vignette for you.
The items pictured above include a little blue velvet with silk frame, a German dresser box (ring box maybe), an Ice Water Ironstone pitcher from a hotel or train, ruby flash pieces and a Titanic teacup. All are antique except for the teacup.
Pictured below is an antique Scott's Emulsion tradecard. Aren't those girls sweet? Look at those blue eyes!
On the bottom right hand corner it says "The Twins".

Here's wishing you a safe and happy Independence Day. God bless you all.
