Methinks I have been shopping a bit too much in the past two months... Some of these new treasures were purchased at estate sales for decent prices~so that must cancel out some of the more pricey treasures I had to have, right?! Hard to tell how tiny some are. The wooden chair stands less than 16" tall. Love the tortoise shell glasses ($4.00!) and the brass oil lamp with the glass shade ($5!). Love all the vintage blown glass ornaments purchased at two estate sales~great prices. The Dutch doll stands about four inches tall and is vintage. The tiny mouse family who will reside in the 144th scale secret book range from 3/8" down to 1/4" tall...teeny! Adore the black kitty which was hand sculpted out of paper mâché just like the methods used two centuries ago. He is on top of a small cabinet of my mice-keeping watch for a stray. Yet another velvet pumpkin has joined my collection. I bought a deep red one for the Christmas holidays. And there are other treasures not pictured...I'll have to do another blog on the cement statuary I have been collecting~much of it vintage. My house is bursting at the seams~but I have a smile on my face!
