Wonderful antiques in your pictures today. When I had my antiques store I had collectors who would come in looking for the condensed milk containers...this one is very pretty.

Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
A gorgeous share. You had me at the dolly. I love her little dimpled face. Is she not priceless?

The Bobbsey Twins book made my little heart go pitter patter. I read them faithfully when I was a child. They were my favorite collection to read along with the Boxcar Kids.

You shared some beautiful pinks today dear friend. Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Wonderful post! I love vintage cards and books...there is nothing quite like it! My mother cared for a man whose family lived in the same house since the 1800's, there was even a stagecoach block near the road. Anyway, he had tables with small chandeliers on them and many of these small figurines. I remember laying on the floor and looking up at those figurines imaging the balls they were going to and admiring how lady like the women were, such a far departure from today!
Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
