As usual I've had my eye on lots of goodies lately, sometimes I'm looking to buy, sometimes I'm looking to see what things are worth and sometimes I look at a piece over and over again just because it's so beautiful.
I keep lots of pictures for reference, here are some of my favourites from the last few months.
1920s wool swimsuit with all original bakelite buttons
Bakelite bangle which contains a compact - see below
Most of these items were out of my price range on any level, but isn't it nice to sometimes window-shop just for the sake of learning and inspiration?
I'm determined to get one of these big 50s American lamps one day!
Taxidermy purse with the body of a frog...let's all say it together now, EWWW!
Blue monkey fur coat, apparently very rare.
Such gorgeous colours, I know not all my readers like or approve of fur but I love it and wear it as much as I can.
Spectacular lucite box purse with inset flowers to the domed lid.
Fantastic Art Deco lamp base, etched satin glass. One day...!
Huge collection of midcentury Arabia finel enamelware.
Tiger print fur bag with lucite handles and frame, an excellent-ly fun piece.
Yet another lamp, it doesn't look too flash like this but look below, when it's lit up.
How cool is that!
