(My delightful, five cheese ravioli)
I remember handing out these little heart boxes filled with candies when I was a teenager. Found three of them in perfect condition and priced them at a price that even cupid would love. How fun to hide an engagement ring in one.
I can see Audrey Hepburn wearing this fantastic Mr. John of New York and Paris hat. Perfect condition and just plain fun to wear.
My find of the day. A gorgeous and large flow blue serving bowl. Perfect condition. Lovely embossed scroll work on the bowl with gold lustre accents. Just lovely.
A lovely Victorian serving bowl with the famous cabbage roses hand painted on it. Love the scroll work along the edge.
This pretty little stone shelf reminds me of Vincenza and Florence, Italy. Wonderful stone sculptures abound and the missing cherub head only makes it feel like Italy. I may keep this myself as I love the Old Italian look to it.
I adore old quad plate no matter the condition. They have so many uses from serving up your favorite bread sticks to filling with fresh cut or silk flowers.
Don't usually pick items like this up, but they have such a delightful look to them. Tobin Fraley carousel horses, I have since learned, are highly collectible.
Vintage wedding dress from the 1940s. Satin is cut on the bias for lovely draping.
Shaker great walking or wool wheel with a Minor's head assembly. I have spun wool on this for years, but I am downsizing and am only keeping my one, castle wheel that I spin on all of the time.
Brought out pretty vintage carnival glass from the turn of the century. A love the look of the soft matt carni glass myself.
