Some New Finds

                                           ** For the Grow Your Blog Post go HERE**

This week yielded some lovely vintage surprises.  A wonderful Sid Dickens wall tile and a fabulous Doulton Toby mug of Athos, one of the three Musketeers. The mug reminded me of the first old doll my mom bought. It was actually a doll made from a Toby mug of another Musketeer. The head was the mug, the body a wire armature covered and dressed with lush and rich antique fabrics.  It has long been sold but I think I have a picture of it somewhere.  I now have three Sid Dickens pieces, all thrifted.

                                 This little plate is hand painted. I loved the naive imagery.

                                                   A sweet cache of antique tins.

 This stole my heart as soon as I saw it. It reminds me of my three boys when they were very young.

Growing up there was a wonderful plaster relief of angels that hung in our room. It was under curved glass and had a pink plaster frame. At some point the frame was broken or the glass did, but anyway, it was re-framed in a black wooden shadowbox.  Someday I would love to better frame it up,  should it ever come my way.

                                  In the mean time this one awaits some proper framing too.

It is always a happy to find a beloved Raggedy Ann! She never fails to bring a smile after all these many years since her creation/patent in 1915!  Truly timeless.

Some very nice finds! I have a thing for old tins, but I've had to curb picking up any more. And then when I stopped, I found even more in my parents' house clean out! Great plaster relief. Enjoy your weekend!
