New Treasures...

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!


  1. You've done very well at your estate sales. I especially love your ornaments and sweet doll. I want to be in my craft room today, but we've been putting our yard back together. What a chore!! I'm sneaking a blogging break. Hugs.

  2. Love your treasures. My favorites are the glass ornaments and the small chair. There is always room for treasures!

  3. Wow! Your finds are fabulous and we are so happy you shared with us over at Junkin Joe! Holiday Hugs...
