Had a lovely Fourth of July weekend. Three days off to lounge in the sun, go the Y pool with sis, do a little treasure hunting, run around with my honey and life is good. Found some splendid items and one I have never come across before. A milk glass spittoon. Still has a little tobacco juice along the inside. Will soak that mess out this week. Such a neat, unique item. I haven't decided if I will sell it or perhaps keep it awhile.
A few pairs of antique reading glasses, an interesting set of vintage blue glass beads with bullion wraps and tassels, a wonderful antique pressed glass oil lamp that was refurbished into an electrical one. I may convert this back to its original use as the patent is middle 1800s. I adore antique oil lamps and these hand helds have such a romantic quality to them. I'm doing a few decorating changes in my own family room. Softening the color pallette, so I am also selling my small cowhide and the infants Pendleton blanket as well as a few other items as I move things around.
A delightful, small tin lithograph doll house from the late 1950s early 60s.
It has a Princeton sports room.
I think it would be fun to put framed sports pictures of family members inside it. Would make a fun display.
Marvelous needlepoint covered, antique foot warmer. Some pretty linens, silverplated basket, portable opera glasses and a terrific hand colored photo of an Edwardian woman in a huge hat.
An assortment of sweet items, tiny china child's cup from Germany, vintage glass breast pump, old rag type doll and a lipstick holder from the 1950s.
A lovely assortment of items that I will price and put in the store next weekend.
Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable 4th. Now it's back to the 8 to 5 gig and a little bit of reality. Have a wonderful week. Sea Witch
