Flinging Spring

It was a faboosh spring Saturday, lovely temps, sunny sky and "Spring Flings" popped up everywhere among local shops.   So I dressed my sweet Gynness in her best millinery finery and we were off to do a little spring flinging.

Stopped by one of my favorite haunts and came home with only a small bag of treasure.  I usually fill the back of my vehicle when I stop here, but this was one of those trips where there was just not a lot that jumped out at me.

Adore these fussy twin servers that are purely archaic as serving pieces these days. Still, if you are like me, you will use them on your table or buffet when entertaining.  Your mashed potatoes, vegetables, rolls or biscuits, will be tastier when you serve them in this lovely, Carl Tielsch, Victorian cabbage roses, divided server.  Germany Circa 1900s

Pretty little EAPG cordial glass.  Quad pressed, with a pretty emerald green stem and base.  I have a few other different EAPG cordial glasses that I let my grandchildren use when they visit.  Something about using  a "special glass" is always fun.

Gorgeous,  Northwood, blue opalescent EAPG creamer  The "Alaska" pattern was made by the Northwood Glass Company and dates between 1898-1903.  This is a big creamer and I would use it as a gravy boat.

Great USAAF WWII 1st Troop Carrier Command (TCC) Sweetheart earrings.  Sterling silver. Circa late 1940s

Assortment of antique, cut crystal salt cellars.   These little items are always such fun.  I have used them to display decorative easter eggs, fine chocolates and jewelry,

 Vintage Practical Nurse pin.  Enamel on gold wash base.

Found another Imperial Carnival glass bowl in the brilliant Marigold color with grapes pattern.  Tri-pressed and in beautiful condition.  Circa 1970s

From here I swung by the Queen of Hearts in Buford to drop off 4 dozen tea sandwiches that I had made for the annual Spring Fling.  Gynness and I were busy walking up and down the aisles in search of treasure.  Actually, Gynness was busy sniffing out any dropped crumb from the bountiful board of fare that was offered.  Homemade lemonade, fresh brewed coffee and lots of fussy little tea sandwiches, fruit bars, cookies, fudge and all kinds of goodness was offered.  

We then drove over to Vintage Village in Snellville and sweet Gynness was so glad to see the ladies.  After "announcing" her presence with a loud doxie bark, she posed for pictures.

I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille.

Hello Miss Debbie.  

Funny, I didn't find a thing to bring home this trip.  Was so odd, as two of my favorite places for finding treasure were not in my favor this weekend.   Still, it was wonderful seeing good friends and bringing Gynness out to enjoy the pretty spring weather.  

Fluffed up my spaces on Sunday and did bring in this adorable item.  

Sweet boy's Victorian, one piece, cotton underwear with Drop Seat. Circa 1880s

Tower made of EAPG compote, pierced silverplated compote and a quad plate goblet. 

Twin server looks great next to the Victorian print and framed paper item. 
Filled this large, Elementz, apothecary jar with Easter candy eggs and a chocolate rabbit.  These always make great seasonal decorative elements.

Boyd's Bear figurines always seem to sell well so when I find them in their boxes with COAs I grab them.  Nifty, vintage McCoy birdbath planter is missing the decorative bird usually found on it. 

In the middle of all of this, I have begun a little spring cleaning.  Emptying out closets and I found a laundry basket full of infant/toddler toys, that I had at the house, for my granddaughter to play with.  Kit Kat is a young lady now and I h ad no idea they were still there so I gave them to a sweet little imp, named Debra May, who is 6 months old and would get marvelous use out of them.  

Amazing what you will find in the back of a closet.   So wishing everyone a lovely week and blessings to you and those you love.  Sea Witch

Swoon! I always love when you "fluff" your space, and I get to see inside...Gynness is delightfully beautiful, too! Happy Tuesday, my friend - hope it all sells, and then some! XOXO
