Twas The Week Before Christmas...
...aka, last week's finds. These treasures brought to you from the VOA and Division Street Antiques. I already have one of those Eiffel Tower bottles that I filled with MOP buttons. Luckily that one was found empty. Getting the gross contents of this one out took considerable effort.
A choir of vintage angels dancing in a velvet lined jewelry box while a pretty birdie watches over. I guess I didn't get a good picture of the trim. It is a combination of rick-rack and crochet. I have never seen it done this way. It looks like the rick-rack was attached as the crochet was done, not woven in later.
A Fenton basket and I will bring home just about anything that comes in one of those little Dennison "book" boxes. Okay, skip the "just about" because I can't think of anything I have ever passed on. Including empty ones.
My favorite find of the day, a vintage DANGEROUS stamp. Don't you just have to wonder what the heck that would have been used on??
