White Wednesday

It was a cool but sunny spring week-end here in New England....
the perfect weather to go yard "saling" and "fleaing"....

Here are some of my finds....

...an album full of old photographs....

...an old ironstone vase....
it has a large chip at the base so it was marked $1.00....

...I just LOVE the shape and the details...

....old cutlery, not mother of pearl but a 50's bakelite....still love them...

....my first Frozen Charlotte and an old bracelet with petite white rose cabuchons...

...I found a baf full of these NOS rhinestone jewelry findings...
not sure what the "shape" is supposed to be but I just love them...
(keeping some for myself and will list the rest in my ETSY shop if anyone is interested in some)...

...this is just about the sweetest petite coin purse I've ever seen...
only about the size of a quarter...

...I snagged a box of old crystal and glass salt & pepper shakers...

.....most of the caps are marked "sterling"...

...couldn't leave this divine bottle behind....

...another "petite" find....a tiny Holy Bible...

....and this heavenly Mother and Child plaque just stole my heart...

All in all...a delightful week-end of treasure-hunting!
Happy White Wednesday mes amies!
As always...I am joining the White Wednesday Party over at
