This is where bloggers gather to share their posts about vintage collections, wares, inspired projects and more!
Today I am sharing my love for vintage, delicate, porcelain spinning figurines.
It all started when I was a little girl.
My Grandmother had this one in her bedroom, back when it was fashionable to have a shelf and cabinets as your headboard. I would lay on her bed and gently spin the little pixie ballerina. I loved it. She even has a few repairs in her past. (The figurine, not my Grandma. Tee hee.)
Now it is my treasure and great memory of her to cherish.
But, it started a desire to find more of them. I'm not even sure what they are called other than "spinning figurines." They are hard to find. My curiosity was piqued!
I found this one in an antique mall not too far from us a couple of years ago.
Then, just a few weeks ago, at the same antique mall, I spotted this one... I was so thrilled!
So now I officially have a collection of three.
I've only found these plus one I gave to my MIL several years ago because it was of a spinning Santa under a Christmas tree, and she collects Santas.
You can be sure I will be looking for them again in that same antique mall, it seems to be a lucky one!
Let's see what you all shared last week with a few features:
Last week we saw Debbie of Debbie Dabble get crafty with her patriotic décor. Thanks so much Debbie, you've inspired me to get out my red, white, and blue!
and Random Anny shared a special size Ball jar that glass flower frogs fit into. Thanks for the tip!
and Brooke at Creative Country Mom's blog shared a special find: An antique Family Recorder heirloom and how she used it to decorate her family room.
