A few new listings

I haven't done much for my Etsy shop over the last couple of weeks, I have been so caught up in the plight of some animal charities, who are really really struggling to raise funds to rescue dogs ( and cats ) from the most unimaginably horrible conditions in Bulgaria and Romania. The work these wonderful people do is incredible and I have tried my little bit to help with donations of money, donations of goods to fundraising auctions and sending care packages. 

But of course I can't neglect my little shop for too long either, so here are a few things I have listed -

Another huge vintage French monks/nuns rosary -

Large antique French blue velvet benitier/Holy Water font - SOLD

Fabulous little antique French metal jewellery casket or trinket box, decorated with chrysanthemums - SOLD

Another gorgeous antique French box, this time decorated with mimosa flowers and leaves -

A set of 6 vintage French pharmacy/apothecary tins -

Thats all for now, I'll try and add a few more things over the next couple of days.

Only 4 new items today, but its a start. Travelling back and forth between France and England always means a few days of readjustment when I have lots of other things to do.

First off, a set of 4 small vintage French keys, quite unusual in shape and colour. Love all the fabulous shades of grey the patina has produced -

next, this gorgeous set of antique French horn, bone and silver salad servers - SOLD

and two sets of gorgeous cold coloured vintage buttons on their original PARIS cards.
Whirligig design -

Starburst design -
