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 - SOLD

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 - RESERVED

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

Falling behind, sob sob

I was so busy today getting orders out, I only managed to list a couple of items, one of which was a custom order which has already gone out of the shop again and is now on the way to the customer. So, all I am going to show you today is this one thing, a very beautiful vintage French Art Deco Holy Water font/benitier. The portrait of Christ is just wonderful -

No burning the midnight oil for me today.

A collection of vintage French kitchen utensils ( putting together collections makes sense as there are shipping cost advantages ) - SOLD

A pair of vintage French lion head coat hooks, solid brass and very nice quality -

A vintage ENGLISH pharmacy/apothecary tin, filled with tiny mixed media treasures -
