Bonjour...or perhaps bon nuit? Beautiful people!
I hope everybody had a wonderful Christmas season!
I'm still running around like crazy trying to get things done/or undone...as the case may be, so I've only got a few little pretties to share with you this week.
As always I'll start with my favorite ......what appears to be a small vintage potpourri bottle found in a local antique store......Actually I have no idea what this bottle is actually for? It has openings at the top so can't be perfume....But anyhoo I don't care!...... It's got cherub angels!! Lol!
I think it's probably German? (no markings) It's hand painted with sweet little flowers on both sides and nothing really grand, but for $6? What angel lover could walk away? I wouldn't even put it down whilst I walked around the antique store! Just gripped it tightly in my greedy little hand! *winks*
Here's a close up on the cute little guys.
For now it's living with the lovely ladies on my bedroom dresser.
Then on to favorite find #2 this small Marie Antoinette powder or cream jar from the 1940's for $10 found in the same antique mall. She'll be joining my other Marie beauties. I have a crazy obsession for all things Marie! *winks* How about you?
And in the same booth space this silvered (1920's?) perfume bottle was $12.50. Reminds me of old mercury glass which I adore!
This little German (?) boy was only $3.99 at the local Value Village. I couldn't resist the pink!
Even if he does have yellow eyes *winks*
I found this alpine style Bavarian birdhouse at the Goodwill. There's a hole in the back for the birdies to get in and out. I'm not sure if I should keep this one or not?
This 1940's sacred heart holy water font was also a VV find for $2.99.
And last is this tiny limoge dollhouse plate with frolicking cherubs for $8. It's only about two inches wide. Isn't it adorable?!
I'm showing it here with my Marie boudoir doll to give you an idea of its size. It sure packs a lot of detailed ca-ute for it's diminutive size doesn't it?
Well that's all for this week. What do you think? Are there any items I should've left at the store... before my house turns into a hoarders (french style) episode? *winks*?
I'd LOVE to hear from you!
I hope you'll come back next week for some more shopping fun!
