Swingy denim tunic, S: $15 *sold*
Wednesday, March 14, 2012
I was brushing my teeth this morning when Molly & May(hem) exploded into the bathroom in a feline furry fury. Naturally, I dashed for my camera :)
*SOLD* A sweet cherub adorns each of these 7" tall heavy candlesticks. The elaborate folate details and footed base are reminiscent of Art Nouveau styles, though these are no more than 50 years old. Would make a romantic accent on a shelf, table or mantel. Also makes a nifty housewarming or wedding gift! Unsure of the metal - likely pewter or brass.
*SOLD* I'm happy to offer up a nifty gift option for lovers of Plato, philosophy, and old books: two leather-bound collections, published in Great Britain in 1918 and 1920 respectively.
*SOLD* Floaty ethereal wispy pastel frocks, blouses and skirts are everywhere this Spring (it IS coming, despite this morning's snow), and if you're anything like me, you admire it all in the shop windows while wondering, "Who on earth has the lifestyle for this much sheer/super pale/ dry-clean-only clothing?" I, like many other 30 something gals, am working within a pretty strict budget, so I prefer to have a functional capsule wardrobe of about 12 go-with-everything items , and then I use accessories to inject flash & frolic.
This beautiful vintage 70s purse is a wonderful way to work the pastel trend into your style options. Super buttery soft leather, in the most delicious pastel pistachio green, with quadruple contrast stitching adorning the front flap. It has a 46" strap, perfect for wearing cross-body, and it measures 9" wide and 8" tall. The purse expands to 5" at its widest and the interior is a gorgeous peachy-beige leather. The tag reads "Made in Uruguay BUGATTI Real Leather."
*SOLD* Delicate gold-plated leaf pendant with tiny freshwater pearl & adorable gold-plated unicorn earrings (1cm tall!).
Add a glass hurricane shade to a brass candlestick to elevate the presentation and to reduce the chances of your sleeve catching fire as you reach for something scrumptious on the table :)
*SOLD* Classic school satchel in sturdy yet soft chocolate brown leather, made by Fournier.
- Handy front pocket with an easily accessible zipper
- Belt style brass strap closures
- Top handle & shoulder strap
- Interior has two roomy sections divided by a zippered compartment.
- Measurements: 12" tall, 16" wide, 5" deep at full expansion
Quite beautiful elaborately beaded collar, with a little bit of the original paper label still attached. There are a few beads which have fallen off - I have them, but am the furthest thing from handy with a needle - hence the bargain price! Would make a darling shadow box display piece.
*SOLD* Sweetly old-fashioned accent lamp with floral-accented brass base and clear glass chimney. Part of a foil sticker remains under the base, it reads Underwriters Laboratories of Canada. The lamp stands 10" tall & 4 1/4" across at the base.
*SOLD* Cheery cherry covered pie dish, 12" in diameter and 3 1/2" at it's tallest. Will look quite scrumptious displayed on your shelves, and makes quite the statement serving dish!

*SOLD* This elegant pair of silver-plated toasting goblets have a gorgeous aged patina. They are engraved with two halves of an aphorism by 18th century British poet Matthew Green, "By happy alchemy of mind...They turn to pleasure all they find." This would be a very sweet wedding present! They make a delightful clear ringing sound when tapped (toasted!) together.

Price: $30 for the pair
