Show and Tell Monday









Here are a few treasures I found while antiquing on the north shore. Now I have to decide....hmmmm.....keep for Susie or add to my Little Pink Boutique, The Polka Dot Rose....decisions, decisions.... The first picture is of a three heavy glass canisters with blue metal screw on tops, which will look perfect filled with buttons, marbles, M & Ms, or on a vanity for cotton balls, costume jewelry, bling etc.; In the next shop I came across a unique pink hatbox with a quilted top. Seems to be from the 50's. Inside this wonderful find was a vintage hat! I put the hat on my head immediately and waited for my sister to walk in the shop and see me. What fun! I knew I had to leave with these gems. I also saw a sweet little creamer from Germany with the loveliest flowers. I left there a very happy gal! This was a "tag sale" at an Antique Shop. Double Joy!

I vote for the jars to be placed on your LPB so I can purchase them. LOL Of course, if your like me, you will keep them and enjoy them for a while, then sell them. You found some really great stuff, thanks for sharing it with us.

Those finds are marvelous! I especially love the creamer. I collect creamers and sugar bowels. Well I did till I moved in with my g.ma and now live and work out 1 room. But anyway they are wonderful finds and I think you should keep the hat.

I can never pass up a lovely creamer OR a wonderful vintage hat.
Great finds !

Hi Susie,

You found some great items. I must confess, though, that the creamer is my favorite. It is so sweet and delicate.

Hi Susie! OMG! I love that pink hat! I wouldn't be able to pass it up either!
I'm finally able to use my computer, been having a horrible time with it, let me know if you still love the dish? I've emailed you, but haven't heard, not sure if it even went through
~ Miss you sweets!
