Holiday Treasure

The busiest time of the year for antique dealers and this year is no exception.  A late Thanksgiving in November and only three weekend of shopping for Christmas in December has had me running amuck trying to get as much in to my spaces at the Queen of Hearts.  Lots of unique items found at local Holiday Open Houses this year.

First time I ever came across a pair of turn of the century medical stirrups.  If you are a "Knick" fan, then these are the perfect gift.

These 1900s canvas high top shoes were dyed red and have taken on a lovely, faded color.  I'm sure Mrs. Claus would be wearing these as she danced with Nick.

Clothesline reel or kite reel, either way, this vintage piece even looks sweet with garland around it.

I adhered vintage santa's to vintage Florentine plaques, added mica glitter.  

A local thrift store find, gorgeous Lenox Sedar Plate.

Whiteware is so pretty on a holiday table.

Not a creature was stirring, not even a "mica dusted" mouse.

Beleek, Lenox, and Wedgwood make lovely gifts.

Very wearable, Elf Slippers. Be your own, elf on a shelf.

Antique bells ring in your guests.

Pair of Sterling, weighted candlestick holders.

Mid century, mercury glass ornaments are always pretty decorative elements.

My Victorian booth is packed with goodness.

A visited my sister in Florida over Thanksgiving and found this marvelous pair of  Roseville bookends.  Pink Zepher Lily on the famous matt green bookend base.  These will be in my display case at the Buford Queen of Hearts.

It was a great trip and I so enjoyed spending time with baby sis.  We always have the best time and so busy laughing until it hurts.  I hope everyone had a gentle Thanksgiving as well.  Blessings to you and those you love.  Sea Witch
