Vintage Etsy Society Street Team, a group on Flickr.
I am so excited - I just joined this Etsy Team!!
|This stash is destined for Missing Heirloom and Bittersweet Design online. Look for it SOON!|
|This group has yet to be sorted!|
|I'll be pricing these goodies for the Purcellville Town Wide Tag Sale to be held on October 8 and 9. Coming soon!!!|
|2 peg racks - already owned, hold my beaded necklaces. 2 wrought iron bird and vine wall decor pieces (purchased at It's Bazaar, Purcellville, VA) have enough tendrils, etc... to hang bracelets and other necklaces.|
|I had a handmade primitive wall box that held my bangles - but they were overflowing. Time for another solution. I did have a mish mosh collection of Transferware on my dresser - but the pieces didn't work the way I needed them too, and the many colors were too busy. I edited the grouping down to 3 vintage Milk Glass pieces to hold the bangles - again organized - ROY G BIV. I kept 3 smaller Transferware pieces - (all in various red patterns) - a lidless sugar bowl for a votive candle holder, a heart dish - given to me by a dear friend Patty, and a pin dish. The 2 smaller pieces will be a good temporary place for 'catch alls'.|
|A stack of quilts were formerly in this cubby. These items were originally in the front cubby - now occupied by cool guy stuff. This area is smaller than the front cubby - so I think my collection might need to be edited.|
|So where did all this stuff come from? Most of the goodies in this photo are from my childhood. Two bears, Soup Bone and Brown Gravy - made by my Grandma Trulinos, my miniature Blue Willow tea set, A composition doll, Marie - my Mother's only doll - a gift to her at age 13. Also up there Sunshine, my puppy dog from when I was baby, a miniature Bell Telephone music box - from when my Grandmother Nolin worked at the phone company and some dresser jars from when my Mom had first taken up housekeeping. |
|Cool guy stuff! A few of Bob's favorite books, some vintage tools, and a toy truck from his childhood.|
|This is part of my 'reduce and pass on' theory to lessen my 'collection' load at home. Stack of quilts that once occupied the cubby. Look for these soon in my Missing Heirloom shop on Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop/MissingHeirloom|
|The quilts I'm keeping. Ratio is pretty good - about 3 to 1!|
