Vintage treasures show and tell

Flea9

Hello friends!

It's been awhile since I've shared some of my newest collectables, and flea market finds.


They are sweet little treasures I've found from all over these past several months.  

Some will find a special place in my

home, and the other's might be used in future projects.


I can't seem to resist a vintage doll face with the rosy cheeks and bright red lips!

I found this darling child's hand muff at the Long Beach, CA flea market.

She was in *mint* condition and simply irresistible!

Another fabulous find that I *gasped* over was this vintage cutie.

 

He now has a home on my studio Happy Wall.

He runs on batteries, plays the drums, and his little pink eyes light up inside.

His quirky smile is too cute!

I have to give some major credit to Miss Jessi for finding this pink bunny for me.

He had my name written all over him!

I know you must be thinking how many stuffed animals does she have?? Sheesh!

Well, it's enough to open an animal day care with. hee! hee! πŸ˜‰

This vintage child's bucket I am using to hold all my studio pens and pencils with.

Im in love with these little mini birthday cards I found. Some even have a little charm

that comes with the card.

Super sweet tally cards.

This is a darling tin book that opens up. Don't you just love the images? Especially of the children.

Hmmm…got to think about what to use this for.

Just in time for Christmas.

How cute are these aqua elves?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Holt Howard figurines!!!

I especially love and collect his angels and feather angels.

How fun is this little retro handbag? I love the texture and the pastel dots! It was a swap gift given to me by the lovely and talented Joy Campbell.

I *scored* these CUTE vintage inspired pillows while shopping at The Creative Connection Handmade market.

I think they look sweet on Vivi's bed.

This pretty lady sits on my bed.

These last few finds I want to share with you are my most favorite!

 

A beautiful soft feminine hand altered top created by the uber talented Miss Christine Rose Elle.

 

Flea19

 

The first time I wore this top I had female strangers coming up to me begging me to

tell them where I purchased this top. I gladly told them about Miss Christine and her 

gifted talent for making us ladies feel even more feminine and prettier with her 

beautiful handmade jewelry and altered clothes.

 

The details are scrumptious!

Ribbons, lace, bows, and sparkle!

When surfing Ebay a few weeks ago I accidentally stumbled upon the prettiest vintage millinery.  

For some reason I rarely bid on millinery. I don't usually go out of my way to look for it. 

Well, when I saw these velvet lavender violets I feel in love with how simple and 

pretty they look. I could just see them on the cover of a handmade journal or collage.

 Gorgeous!

 

Flea26

 


Finally I saved the best for last in my humble opinion. Never ever have I seen blow

mold bunny lights before. How darling are these???

 

 

Flea27


 So so sweet!

 

Flea31


I am running out of space in my little studio area, but I have managed to find a spot to 

hang them up.

Isn't it amazing how the littlest treasures can make you feel so happy. 

I think we all have something we love collecting weather it's vintage china, figurines, silver, 

paper dolls, millinery, fabric,  jewelry, and so on.

 

The adrenaline rush of finding that perfect *special* something is the best! 

 

Flea30

 

Wow! My daughter will really be inheriting a huge collection of vintage bunnies one day. πŸ˜‰

Hi Jenn,
Gorgeous and sweet post, I too have a love for rabbits, but I must say I haven’t collect them for a very long time, and alot of the soft toys have been lost in the many moves we have had, I am loving the bunny lights, they are adorable. I also love the tin book, anything vintage and Christmas melts my heart, which leads me to ask, today I was reading my Romantic homes magazine, your image on page 8 is beautiful, now to the asking part…you know your little christmas book in that image, would it be possible for you to scan it and for me to buy the image from you, would love to use it as part of my christmas tag collection…pleeease Jenn with cherries and bunnys on top.

And the book tin- more sweetness!! You find the best stuff! The pillows are wonderful. I especially love the one with the lady on it. The top is over the top gorgeous!!! What a find!! And the lavender velvet flowers are so lovely!

I LOVE your posts, they are always filled with so much scrumptious prettiness! I used to have a doll when I was little with a smilar face to that of the one in your first photo. Thanks for bringing back the memory of her :o)
Love all your goodies, and that top is just fabulous. YOu know I’d just adore those velvet violets ;o)
Had a quick catch up with your Halloween post too. Wow is all I can say. I can totally believe it would have taken hours to set up the Halloween table. Worth it though, it looks utterly brilliant.
Your children also looked utterly brilliant :o)
Such a lovely time here, catching up and ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’ over the photos!

Oh my sweetness my heart skipped a beat when I scrolled down and spotted that precious pink drummer bunny!
I played the drums in high school band and loooooooove pink bunnys!
She is just way too sweet! What a gem!
And that white fluffy muff brought back many wonderful memories as I had one just like it when I was a wee one.
Mum always had me dressed in the sweetest ruffly dresses and I do remember keeping my hands warm and thinking I was the luckiest girl in church with my furry white muff and matching coat and bonnet!
