Xmas 2013

3 days past 2013 Christmas, have to show some of my treasured tree ornaments of course!
The most fragile vintage is this clip on blown glass bird, she perches with her little crown.
unbelievable that she has survived since the 1900's!


The papier mache santas have found a spot in my hutch in the
living room, every year I have set them up in different areas of the house,
now this is where they will always be displayed. They have
many bottle brush trees to nestle in as well.

Guidone & Co. Galvanized

We have several fun galvanized pieces for your decorating needs! You can't beat finding washtubs with their original covers!  We took a #62 wash tub, added some industrial wheels and I made a cover for storage. The top of the tub is collaged with antique pages from a shakespear book. You could have more fun by adding letters, paint or picture with simple modgepodge...try it, it's so much fun. There are 4 metal bistro chairs to add to your table, porch, or even your living room. Nothing is off limits, do what you love!

Necklace with Vintage Brass Tag

I just added this chain necklace with vintage keys, a bird charm, an old brass tag and several other findings throughout the chain. you can find it at
