I want to make buying from me as easy as possible, and therefore I am listing everything in my Etsy shop now. Easier to add the different shipping costs, no chance of me not removing a bought item and somebody else trying to buy it, etc etc. So from time to time I will use this blog to show you the new things I have listed, to keep you up to date.

Its Wednesday

I only have three offerings today. Firstly, there is this beautiful large silver metal figure of Christ on the Cross, without cross -



A large painted chalkware figure of the Sacred Heart Christ -



And something completely different, this antique French copper carriage warmer, the perfect pressie for a vintage car enthusiast -

Today we have....

.... a few more vintage French bits and pieces of course.

A rather unusual snake handled wine tasting cup -



A plain and simple red velvet Holy Water font with a porcelain shell font -


Beautiful vintage French rosary with clear faceted beads -



Vintage French rosary with deep garnet red faceted glass beads -



I have also listed three antique French embroidery stamp rollers, all different. They'd make a great collection.
This is the more usual stamp roller with black wooden handle. Five stamps included-



This is the much rarer extra large stamp roller -



And this metal handled stamp roller is not easily found either -



A set of three 1950s French medical tall round tins -



I have also listed my last set of these dinky little French tart tins, they are so cute! -

Trims galore! Plus a few other bits

A visitor to the shop asked me about vintage French neutral and pastel trims, so instead of just emailing her with some details, I decided that I might as well do the work and list some of my many trims. I included a selection of rather lovely winter white trims, great for all the winter craft projects -

Winter white chenille braid trim -


Winter white fringe trim -


Winter white gimp braid trim -


Winter white braid trim -


This fabulous beaded trim -



Some lovely neutral trims, gentle shades of ivory, sand, cream. This lovely thick tassel trim -


And this kind of braided looking trim -


Three very pretty pastel trims, like this fluffy fringed trim in the sweetest pale Spring green and shell pink -


Multi colour tassel trim, with the silkiest pastel tassels -





And last but not least, this darling little duck egg blue and shell pink looped fringe trim -


Couldn't list just trims though, so I also added a few other things. Like this sweet little antique French glass jewelry casket -

 

Large vintage jewelry presentation box, made to look like tortoiseshell and big enough for a chunky necklace -


A pair of antique hand carved wood printing blocks -


Phew, I am done. Off to bed :-).
