A lovely mother from an era gone by...
Every since I was a little girl, I rememer getting so excited to go to flea markets and sales with my mother. She always likes to tell how when my younger sister and I would go with her, no matter how many brand new, in the package dolls/stuffed animals there were there, we always chose the oldest, rattiest ones to take home. She would try to coax us into getting the newer...cleaner...dolls, but my sister and I knew they would soon find good homes. The others, however, the outcasts, the misfits, if you will, may not. We HAD to rescue them!!!
And my absolute favorite...this shabby n' so chic creamer!!! (Which I am **hoping** she will find in her Big Big heart to give me! ;)
Be sure to check out my mom's website (I designed it!), and sign her guestbook to let her know your thoughts!
Lots of storage and my grandmother's art desk.My grandmother's paint pallette (she was an artist too!) decorated with a pink hobnail frame, dried pink roses, and vintage rose print. A white plume pen sits below.
I love French artists the most, and this book is a fabulous vintage find...a school project of some sort, from the early 1900's, handwritten in beautiful penmanship are descriptions of famous artists.
Tiny treasures. I love crystal prisms!
Collection of wine bottle corks.
Vintage cream, white & gold buttons.
