A lovely footed bon bon dish of chocolate slag glass and is also known as Greentown Glass. This is an early 1900s piece and carries a value of about $85.00. The good news is that I paid $1.00 for it...the bad news is that it must have been dropped as it broken in two places and reglued. The break was a clean one and is very, very difficult to see. Still, it is no where near the $85.00 value, but I like it and it was priced right.
And now, for the really great find. Again, sis was on my mind...I miss her now that she is in Florida, so when I came across this MIB, 1960s store deadstock Mrs. Beasley doll, I immediately thought of her. We both enjoyed watching Family Affair as children. I was closer to the character, Cissy's age and she was right around Buffy's age, the little girl who carried Mrs. Beasley everywhere.
Remember all of the great late Victorian china cabbage roses serving bowls and plates I purchased from a dealer friend? Well, here they are. I was hoping to get the new mantle up, but it would not lay well on the wall so I had to bring it back home and find another way to display all of these pieces for Mother's Day. Since my girlfriend sold them to me at a great price, I am passing them on to my customers at a great price as well. These are perfect for Mother's Day and I priced them for younger family members to purchase for mom with their own money.
The perfect decorative pieces for a romantic farmhouse decor.
The needle-arts are a personal favorite of mine and I love to decorate with them, especially needlepoint or canvas-work pieces. Found this lovely Victorian dresser tray with a soft maize background and roses at the Braselton Fair last weekend. This tray would have originally held a mirror. It most likely broke and the original owner replaced it with a piece of hand wrought needlepoint.
Brought in the test tube holders and filled them with toothbrushes. What a fun item to use in a guest bathroom. Small tubes of toothpaste fit in the larger holes and this would make a great guest item for toiletries.
That sweet chair looks right at home in the vintage white wicker rocker.
Booth is packed with lots of items. I would love to do a huge makeover but just don't have the ability to do it right now as my knee slowly heals. This crazy Seattle type weather we are having right now does not help the healing process. My knee is so stiff and it throbs like a barometer. LOL. Still, I am so glad I had this done. The rain is predicated through the middle of the week and I'm so looking forward to the sun coming out again. Blessings to you and those you love. Sea Witch
