My Latest Treats 'n' Treasures

I blame Vix, you know, it's up to here I've started liking the miserable children, now I can't get enough of them. Above, my latest Dallas Simpson, all the way from the U.K.

Continuing with the theme, retro print by Mojer, bought at Suitcase Rummage.

Also from Suitcase Rummage, this repro tin sign. I studies French for many years and have visited it twice, so I always love a reminder.

My most treasureful recent find, however, has to be this 1950s Deco style bookcase with rectangular bun feet.

It took a bit of fixing but now it's as good as gold, I now realise it doesn't fit books very well, but ah well, style is all that really matters, right?!

Tiny weeny shadow box, I've never seen this style before in such a small size, 'twas a gift from one of our regular suppliers who knows me too well, LOL.

And yet another gift, this fabulous black cat, now hanging by my hallway door. The cat itself is solid plaster, how cool is that!

Oh my, lovely treasures Kitty! Yes Vix has opened my eyes to the misery children too! Ahh Paris ... how I love thee and a wee reminder never goes astray does it! My Miss 4 would LOVE those ballet girls! And great art deco shelving. All very yummy x

The shelves are fabulous, the doe-eyed kids are great, but what I am really jealous of is that cat!
How's it going, Kitty? Missing you, love! xxx

The black cat is divine. The little ballerinas are too precious. The bookcase? I may have drooled on my keyboard a little. Great finds.

I saw that print of the girls at the rummage a few months back. Glad to see its gone to a lovely home of someone I know.

That ballerina picture is SO CUTE!! I love it... although the Mr. would probably hate it. *heheh* He doesn't like my choices in wall art at times.

The book shelf is AWESOME!

Love the sad kiddie pieces. A little spooky to be sure but the artwork is nicely executed.


Gorgeous pieces, ahhhhhhhhhhhh memories.
