These Are A Few of My Favourite Things....

There are always so many gorgeous things on ebay, aren't there?!

It's probably a good thing that none of us are wealthy, or we may never be able to stop buying beautiful vintage treasures.And then we'd have to have houses the size of castles to fit it all in...but I digress!

Here are a few choice pieces I've had my eye on lately.

70s statement necklace.

Fabulous gooseneck lamp with fibreglass shades
I'm not usually one for old radios much but there's no way I'd turn this catalin beauty down!

You all know I'm partial to bangles!

Deco carved celluloid dance purse
22k gold and diamond snake bracelet, only $3500 (just in case any of you are rich!)

Deco decanter set, German, by Karl Palda

Deco Egyptian revival bakelite cigarette case

I now regret not buying this stunning 50s lamp :(
Beautiful platforms...which would have been mine if they'd have fit.

1936 Houze glass lamp

I don't know what I'd ever do with something like this...but I love it regardless! 1940s glass taxi roof sign, yes, actually from an old taxi.

50s standard lamp...*big sigh*

More stunning light fittings! I'm rather big on lighting lately, it seems.

Yellow catalin desk set.

Ok that's enough for now, give your keyboards time to recover from the drool splashes please!

Alright I will have the necklace and the blue shoes, you can keep the rest, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ( she fainted)

The decanter set is the one for me, please. You DID mean that we could all pick something and you'd get it for us for Christmas, didn't you? NO???
With you on loving the lighting, and that Taxi sign is just fabulous! Imagine rigging it up as a lamp, wouldn't that be brilliant?
Lovely things, Kitty! xxxxx

Miss Claire said...

Ohhh! Ohhhhhh! Ahhh! Ohhh, I want that one! Thanks for torturing us, kitty! I want them alllllll! Especially the 70's necklace and the ciggarette case, even though I don't smoke....I could keep saftey pins and tea bags in there. Y'know, in case of an emergency or something. Xoxox

Vix said...

I'm always trying on those chokers in India. I've yet to buy one but aren't they fabulous? Just what my collection is lacking and it is my birthday next week if you're feeling generous. xxxxxxxxx

I DID NOT drool over all those goodies thank you very much, I am more ladylike than lk/hndanu;wepjksvm, nburjf/skgfkn. Ahem, sorry, I fell face first onto my keyboard in a swoon. The taxi sign is amazing.
