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 :-).
