But I'm not giving up! I am currently waiting to hear back from my website provider, PAPPASHOP, to email me back with some help. I've gone round and round with them before with no solution. I'm hoping for some help.

When shopping for antique inventory for my website I search high and low. It's got to be just right. Sometimes it is like looking for a needle in a haystack.
I search through old books. I like books especially the old old late 1800's editions. The art work on the covers are amazing.
Since my customers seem to be collectors AND crafters, I go through trays of old greeting cards, postcards, or other ephemera.

Thinking Spring! Latest Listings: Limoges Cupid Plate, French Decor, Antique Postcards, Vintage Easter Decorations
What's an Easter basket display without some Lefton rabbits?
This powder box caught my eye as I quickly spun around to check it out. It came home with me! The little book is absolutely gorgeous. It is a German daily readings book with lovely illustrations and graphics. The plate is from Limoges, France and has two cupids in the center. Charming!
And this platter has so many qualities about it that I liked. It is made in France, bordered in aqua and has a charming transfer of a young maiden, in pastels! Would make a lovely vanity tray, don't you think?
There are more items I haven't shown...like a French Grammar Book, Vintage Valentines, pastel handkerchiefs, bunny and shamrock cookie cutters...all in my Just Listed category on the website. Check it out here.

Our 30+ inches of snow is slowly melting so it's kind of mushy. But we had fun anyway!
Mommy did some antiquing this weekend too. Can't wait to show you my latest finds!

This satiny rose fabric is great to have on hand for those special projects. It's about 9 yards long and 51 inches wide. Lots of material here! I love the champagne color tone.
The first illustrated page of this antique book titled Lucile reads: "The Duke bowed his lips o'er her hand."
I don't know about you but that sounds pretty romantic to me!
Have a great weekend! Hopefully I'll be able to go antiquing this weekend...we've had so much snow I haven't been going on my weekly hunting trips.

How great my LuRay dinnerware would look on the table. Tee hee!
That gives me an idea! Make mini LuRay dishes! Oh another project for later.
What this furniture is really making me think about is getting a dollhouse for Dear Bebe someday. How much fun it will be!
But I think for now I will imagine sitting on this patio set with the sun shining on my face. The snow is still here but spring is only 32 days away!
Are you a dollhouse person? I'd love to hear about yours!

I usually like to show my latest antiquey finds for PS. There really isn't too much from my latest inventory that will work this week. So this Victorian photo album is a stretch...but it is sort of pink.
And this royal sash really isn't pink at all but red is a form of pink at some point, isn't it?

I love the horseshoe mirror.
