White Wednesday

Joining in a bit late here for this White Wednesday 
(if I waited any longer, I'd have to link up to "Black Friday!" LOL!)

Sharing some finds from my trip to the Maine Coast....


An old ironstone bowl filled with petite tresors...



 I found this sweet ironstone soap dish and some lovely earrings and brooches...


 I think you can guess what i'm going to do with these....

(from a Maine Sea Captain's estate)



I found these delicate tatted gloves and this old crazed crock...


Look at the tag inside the glove....


...and the marking under the crock...."Le Meridien, Paris" perhaps??

(Maybe my Maine Sea Captain traveled to Paris and brought these back to his beloved wife?)


Just look at the detail work on this gorgeous tablecloth.....


 ...and this table runner.


 These sweet, hand carved wooden hands were from a jewelry store that was closing.

They are so delicate and lovely.

(I know Rosemary! Sigh...)


 My Maman bought me these beautiful tin types....

This is one of my favorites...

...and this one too. Don't they look like Victorian Witches??


Happy White Wednesday mes amies!

  16. Oh, I am drooling at each and every tresor! You truly scored big in Maine. Ahhh, and the romance of it all...the captain sails to Paris for his love. I do believe you've got a creation in the making just with that story.
    J'Adore everything! Your mother was very sweet to get the tin types for you. The Victorian witches will be perfect for Halloween. :)
