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.

It is Sunday, so just one

I do want to keep going with listing every day, but today I spent most of the day making a bunch of customer tags. I had run out completely! I'll show them on my Lalaland blog soon :-). And it is Sunday, so I am taking it a bit easier today. The only thing I listed today is this really nice set of 6 vintage French door finger plates -

Can't think of a title

I can't even think of a Post Title tonight, lol, my brain has already gone to sleep. It has been so crazy busy in my store, it seems I haven't moved away from my Etsy stuff all week. Christmas shopping is well under way, it seems.

All I managed to list today ( after dealing with a bunch of orders ) are these little beauties -

The sweetest tiny little mother of pearl child's rosary, really exquisite and totally delightful  - SOLD




Another rosary, this time with beautifully deep sky blue glass beads and finely decorated metal tube beads -


Also, this 1 yard length of antique French metallic thread lace trim, quite stunning - SOLD




Wishing you all a relaxing and happy Sunday, toodlepip xxx

Four more

I love putting little collections together. Takes me ages to find the right things so that they go together, but I really enjoy it. I wanted to list a lovely old English Workbox tin by Geo. Bassett, but it always seems such a waste to send an empty box. I prefer to send them filled with something, so I gathered some vintage sewing notions and lace and buttons and put them in the box and that made me feel much happier :-) -





I also listed this amazing antique French trim, which had been used as a pelmet above a tall window -



The first French street sign I listed sold very quickly, so I decided to list the only other I have as well - SOLD
I also listed the very last length of the vintage French millinery netting - SOLD, thats it, all gone 





See ya tomorrow, toodlepip xxx

A set of dinky little cookie or hors d'oeuvre cutters, which I like to use for decorating jars of home made marmalade or chutneys with -



Art Deco era vintage French fabric jewelry or sewing box -
