Today's treasures from the VofA and a fun estate sale. The gloves in the front are very thin leather - I think they call it kidskin. I guess my picture isn't the best. There is a pair of ceramic chickens. I really needed THOSE... There is a pile of costume jewelry, old hankies, doilies, baby shoes, four tiny salt and pepper shakers, a vintage pin pack, milkglass jar, ornate silver spoon, a neat silhouette reverse painted on glass, an old compact, a calculus text book (great pages!) and a giant brandy snifter.
When I got back from junk shopping my DIL and I went to a craft sale at one of the local nurseries. There was someone offering random glass jars planted as whimsical little terrariums filled with moss and little figurines. I told Alayna the estate sale I just left had MORE big brandy snifters and two boxes of little ceramic and plastic animals so naturally we raced back to see if they were still there. Lucky for us no one else had seen the "vision" and we were able to snap them up. Making the terrariums is going to be SO FUN!
Enough with this corporate life - I want to be an American Picker when I grow up!
