Silk and Silver and Springtime trims

I haven't listed anything for a few weeks, but I have started again now, and will try to add one or two things every day. Could make that my New Year's resolution, I suppose. Once again, I am listing these things on Etsy, because it is so much fairer to you all. On the blog, I can't take off bought items when I am not around, with Etsy, any bought item disappears instantly, so there can't be any mistakes and disappointments.

Starting with the SILK of the blog title, this is the most exquisite silk and silk embroidery handkerchief , perfect for a wedding handkerchief -

Silk handkerchief is SOLD

Next, the SILVER, an antique ornate WMF silver plated two handled chalice/cup

WMF cup is SOLD

And the SPRINGTIME trims? Here they are, delicious ice creamy Spring colours - SOLD. but more available

I have also listed a few other things. This is a rather sweet velvet and silver metal souvenir from Lourdes, I would think from the 1950s -

A fabulous 1922 Blue Guides Muirhead's Paris and Its Environs, incredibly informative and with a wealth of fold out maps - SOLD

Two vintage enameled blue and white French house numbers, one with square corners, one with rounded corners -

Both house numbers are SOLD

Yeoman silver plate George V 1930s Art Deco cocktail shaker, " The Bomb " -

Cocktail shaker is SOLD

Very tactile 19th Century French double sided folding ruler/measuring stick -

Folding ruler is SOLD

and lastly, another BIG bundle of 1970s German lace -

German 70s lace is SOLD, but I will be listing more.

They are listed HERE in my Etsy shop. I hope you see something you like.

Lace bundle is SOLD


Trench Art Cross SOLD

Spring Green Trims SOLD

More tomorrow. If there is anything in particular you would like to see, let me know. I'll have a think in the morning about what I can part with. I have one or two beautiful Eiderdowns from the 1940/50s, which I might list.

I know, I don't live in the States, but I can't help getting excited when I hear and read about all the BLACK FRIDAY hype ( I listen to 995 the wolf all day long, lol ). A huge mega sales weekend sound like a pretty good idea to me. I'd love to be part of it. So, I am listing a bunch of vintage and antique French and English items in the Etsy shop for a 4 DAY SALE, it is so much easier there to apply different discounts for the duration of the 4-day sale.

I will be listing lots more over the next 4 days, but this is what I have added to the Etsy shop today-

Purple trims are SOLd


Peach and tangerine trim is SOLD

Fabric Pack SOLD




This tin is SOLD

Madeleine baking tray SOLD

Antique French coat hooks SOLD

All other stock in the Etsy shop are also on sale. You can check them all out HERE or click on the link in the sidebar.

There are also quite a number of lovely things in this blog shop. For the 4-DAY Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend, these will also be reduced by between 10 and 15%. Please email me if you are interested in any of the items listed here.

Edwardian pocket shoe horn and button hook

I believe this to be Edwardian, although it could be slightly earlier, end of the 19th C. The set comprises of the daintiest little shoe horn and a matching button hook in a gorgeous green colour, small enough so that it could be carried with you.
