The joy of Small Treasures



As I've said recently I've sworn off large finds for awhile. I'm not sure how I'll do as I picked up a 5' cabinet and an iron dolly this week, but I WAS able to lift them all by myself, so they don't count as large :)

Anyway, I thought I'd take a moment to share some fabulous small items I've found lately. Most of these are being added to my personal collection, at least for now, wink wink. I always joke that "everything is for sale... eventually".

This is a great old soap holder, that fits over those old cast iron tubs. Isn't it fabulous!

I traded another dealer for it. She took 2 large hard to haul items off my hand for it. It was a great trade in my book.

This is a neat item, Some sort of display case

I had it for months not knowing what to put inside. Then some of my trinket boxes broke, and it hit me how beautiful the lids are by themselves. So inside go 2 old trinket box lids, and a wonderful old metal chain purse.
I added a very strong magnet to keep it closed, and easy to open.


Isn't this bottle wonderful. Look at the lid, it's a crown. It's about 2" tall, simply wonderful.

I just love small treasures!!!!

Be sure to hop over to Flea Market Style for a fun Give-a-way.

I love the display case -- those purses look perfect in there. Almost like it was meant to be!

P.S. Goofed up my first comment -- it's typical.
