Showing just a few tidbits...
some of the tiny, little things I picked up at the Webster Flea.
I loved this itsy, bitsy gold metal locket...
...and was thrilled to find the tiny photographs still inside.
An old tin...
...some brass skeleton keys
This little round shaped piece of hardware reminds me of a crown.
My Renninger clock face fits perfectly inside.
Perhaps it was a lamp part?
In August...while at the Madison Bouckville show in New York,
I found the "crown" below.
More photos of found bits and pieces at Webster
and local thrift stores to follow soon.
I am much pickier in my purchases these days...
I have to fall totally in love with something
or get it for a steal before it gets to come home with me.
Frankly, my years of collecting have caught up with me
and taken over.
I have way too many antiques and loads of vintage stuff...
wonderful. old. things.
It is well past time to pass things along to someone else!
But...it's hard to let go.
Even though...I know it's just stuff.
I'm trying...really I am.
I think I have BHD
Borderline Hoarding Disorder
(I just made that term up...but it fits!)
Something I will never give up as long as I am able bodied...
is the hunt...the quest for the unusual...the beautiful
...and the love of being outside in the early morning
searching for that unnamed item that will start
my heart a-pounding!
I'll never stop looking!
...and hopefully one day soon I will stay put long enough
to open up my Etsy shop.
After all, if something sells...I have to be home to ship it out!
Enjoy the weekend friends!
