Vintage Finds: French Poodle Figurines, Spats Hook, Word Game, Edgar Allen Poe, Vintage Sarah Coventry Jewelry, Vintage Donald Duck Puppet

Summertime and vintage go hand in hand. Here's what I've just listed:

Old wooden and metal ladies shoe forms in sweet pastels, tied in a bow.
ADORABLE chalkware puppy. Was he a carnival giveaway? I'd love to know!

Ms. Fifi is out taking her sweet pooch for a walk... love the hat!
Her rose decor on top is not perfect but she was too precious to pass up.

Antique spats/button hook (company advertised on the handle made socks)

The two gals in the real photo postcards come with this set.

I couldn't resist making a name for myself out of this vintage word game.

I could have done ANTIQUE or VINTAGE but why would I do that?

Bella Rosa was so much more fun!

Create your own words with this old Parker Brothers Crosswords Lexicon game!

Pretty face powder box by AVON. Has the good housekeeping seal on the back.

I'm thinking fifties?

Vintage Sarah Coventry pin. Also has an attachment to wear it as a pendant.

Donald Duck! Loved this old puppet... he is marked on the back of the neck W.D.P (Walt Disney Productions) and also has the original fabric tag... he was an early GUND toy.

A little spooky Edgar Allen Poe for you... Halloween is right around the corner.

Did I just say that? I dare not rush summer along!

This antique framed print is marked "SLUMBERLAND" on the lower left corner.

Old wooden frame is painted in a gold wash. Very old piece.

Check out the rest in my JUST LISTED category, here.

There are more treasures like an antique brass hanging scale, a Schumann Arzberg Pink Rose Cup & Saucer, a Victorian pink rose pitcher/creamer by Homer Laughlin, and more antique postcards / books.

Thanks for stopping by!

Linking to Pink Saturday too... stop by and visit all of the other blogs.

You never know who you will meet or what you will find!

I have searched high and low for that sweet French poodle set! Alas, no luck! I was raised with a sweet Gigi and her daughter Renee. They were such beautiful pets. I remember them so fondly. Love all these treasures! Cool! Have a great weekend! Anne

Such adorable items.... my favorite is the French Poole set and the sweet little chalkware puppy. I have a pretty nice collection of dogs. I have one room in the house that I call my dog room, due to the amount of dog collectibles I have in that room! Their so sweet. Have a great weekend!!!

Wonderful treasures! Hope to browse them in person within the next couple of months. Just found out my schedule is changed. My new days off are Tuesday and Wednesday - no chance for a long weekend unless school is closed or I take the day off. Getting a school calendar today so I'll see what's up!

What lovely treasures you have found!

Seeing the poodles reminded me that I was supposed to let you know that the poodle-holder you sent me is now sporting new makeup brushes! I think of you every day that I use them!

PS: Thanks again! I pressed "publish" too quickly!

Loved your new Bella Rosa items. Hard to pick just one because I like them all!

I found your blog at Pink Saturday and thought I'd say "hi." You have some lovely things. The rhinestone jewelry reminds me of some pieces I inherited from my aunt. They date from the '40's, but they're unsigned.

Please visit my new blog, Over the Hill and 'Round the Bend.

HPS....late. :) I have always loved those old shoe forms and think they look fabulous piled in a white ironstone pitcher. Love everything you have shown us today.
