I've been good :-)

Been listing more little treasures in my Etsy shop.

Beautiful rose fabric covered vintage French box -

A delightful little vintage French glass jewellery box - SOLD

The blue colour of this antique French apothecary/pharmacy bottle is just amazing - SOLD

I also dipped into my vintage and antique tin collection again. 

This is a vintage French Betises des Cambrai tin, love the kind of dusky lavender colour of the lid - SOLD

This is an enormous shop/window display advertising tin, English this time, Slade Caramel Toffy - SOLD

A lovely La Seve de Vosges tin, the pale salmon pink background colour is gorgeous - SOLD

This dark blue and gold tin featuring a Phoenix is just stunning - SOLD

I think this vintage English Baret Ware tin used to hold tea - SOLD

I also listed another tea strainer/tea sieve as 2 of the 3 I listed a few days ago are already sold - SOLD

I was rummaging through my box of vintage sewing notions and found a couple more of these vintage French bone rings on cards - ALL SOLD

I put together a collection of antique and vintage French pen nib boxes, their graphics and colours are so fabulous - SOLD

Vintage French painted chalkware statue of Sacred Heart Christ - SOLD

A vintage French painted chalkware figure of the Virgin Mary - SOLD

They both came from the same family and I would love it if they both went to the same new home together.

I am starting to list more of my antique French Holy Water Font collection as well. This is a metal Lourdes souvenir one - SOLD

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look. Toodlepip xxx

Whats new?

I listed two beautiful Victorian chatelaine purses in the shop.

Antique French silver mesh chatelaine purse - SOLD

and this sweet little beaded chatelaine purse - SOLD

Large figure of Christ, originally it would have been part of a very large cross - SOLD

Vintage French chalkware Madonna - SOLD

Set of 6 vintage French kitchen canisters - SOLD

I also listed two fabulous old cast iron enamel trivets in amazing colours. This first large trivet is the most fantastic sea green ( better than in the photos ) - SOLD

and I love the hearts and curls in this turquoise trivet - SOLD

Another piece of vintage French kitchenalia, fab Art Deco tea towel rack - SOLD

I had six bundles of these 1950s French letters listed, they are all SOLD -

I have a large collection of smallish vintage French Holy Water fonts and it is time they came out of the box they are stored in and perhaps go to new homes. I don't have the room to display them all and it seems such a shame to keep them in the box and just look at them occasionally. I'll be listing them over the next few days.
