These latest finds span from over the Summer up until now. I hope you enjoy seeing them.
A lot of them are dollhouse miniatures but not all of them, there are a few antique items as well.
Let me warn you, I have gone miniature crazy!
The below minis I got all from one dealer. My favorite is the fancy little wall shelf. I have taken the plant out of the other wood piece and will use it as a magazine rack...maybe. The little oval mirror is kind of old I think, the frame is tin, so it is kind of cool.
The below items came from our local Historical Society's garage sale...
The hand painted house is a wall hanging key holder. The little clock I got to make into a framed mirror for my dollhouse.
See the white doily looking thing underneath everything? Well that is my favorite find of that sale! Isn't it gorgeous with all those cherubs? They have more of a butterfly wing look then a feather look though, so I don't know what you call them exactly.
Just look at the detail work on it. I got it for $3!
At a different sale I bought these concrete geese for my garden. The little one's neck is cracked but that's okay. Got them both for $8, not too bad for a broken neck!
And now for a few little souvenir pieces that I recently acquired. I got the little cup and saucer on Ebay for $6, I thought it was so cute. It's hard to find both the cup and saucer together.
And see the little oval picture with the needlepoint looking flowers? The frame is metal and has Italy on it. I thought it was really neat.
And finally, a find that is not miniature! I got these 4 Royal Albert Old Country Roses teacups/saucers to go with my tea kettle. Got them for $6 a set (cup and saucer being a set). I've always adored this pattern, so pretty!
This past weekend my mom and I went for a drive to see the pretty Fall trees and get in some antique and flea market looking/shopping. It was a beautiful day but not much color left on the trees.
But I did buy some things.
I got these two things (not minis). The shell piece is a St. Louis Worlds Fair Souvenir. Not all that pretty but for 50 cents I thought it might like it with my other vintage shell pieces. And then there's this egg...
look at how gorgeous it is with it's little door opened up! And it was only $4! Plastic egg and base though.
And I have saved the best find for last! An 1800's walnut writing desk.
You are going to think I'm crazy when I show you what I'm using it for! I'll give you a clue, I'm moving it up to my bedroom...
I needed a table for my dollhouse!! See I told you I've gone crazy! But doesn't it look good?
So now I can open it up and play all day! Ha!
I also got this rug this weekend. Sorry the photo is a little blurry.
So that is it for my latest finds. I want to leave you with a little glimpse of my miniature Halloween party.
Have a great week and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
