Vintage Beauties: French Scroll Frame, Victorian Shakers Plus My Watercolor Find!

Just simply put, I listed some
 vintage beauties last night.
Actually it took me three days to get this all done!
(I try and edit photos between watching
Bebe and everyday tasks)

(PLUS... the MYSTERY SALE
is up for this week!)
Now, back to our regularly scheduled
programming....this week's finds:


I couldn't purchase this antique
 French scroll frame fast enough.
A perfect fit for the shop!



 band or hair wrap.

Beautiful elongated rose celery dish.
This little bugger had me
heading back to the fleamarket
thinking I left it on a table
somewhere. I couldn't find it
when I arrived home.
That's how much I liked it!
(Turns out it was in the back
of my trunk)



I was also happy to list this
perfect sized vintage suitcase.
Petite and just the right dimensions
for stacking at the TOP
of your suitcase pile!
 A Royal Albert teacup and saucer
in the "Festival Series" Lyric shape.

A lovely petite pink roses
PLUS a set of vintage keys come
with this! 





A lovely "ruby red" rhinestone pin

 Antique book written for children


earrings are marked "STERLING"
Just lovely!

And here is a peek at my newest exciting find!
A gorgeous rose watercolor.
Found in the antique mall where we
have a booth.

It was in need of TLC.
So, we took it out of the frame to purchase
a new matte board.
Behind the frame was a Boston Herald
Newspaper from 1886!


I loved it even more after this discovery.
Hopefully the frame and glass cleanup
plus a new matte board will bring this beauty
back to life!

This one might be a keeper for me...
what would you do?

Have a great weekend
and happy antiquing!

What beautiful finds!! I'm going to have to head over to the shop and 'poke' around -- that flapper headband is fantastic!!

Happy Pink Saturday. Great finds! Love the scrolly frame. I found one recently and just sold it on eBay. I grew up not too far from Lancaster, very familiar with the area. I love to shop for fabric in Lancaster!!! Almost went last week but it was too hot.
