bottle and bottle opener

A couple more items
from the last estate sale.

Unopened Bols Ballerina bottle is pretty darn cute,
the ballerina twirls and dances to music
inside the bottle.
The bottle is at
The Antique Emporium.

I added this four eyes bottle opener to
our small collection.
These are keepers for sure!!!

Thrifty Thursday.

Have a great Wednesday,

Estate sale goodies

My estate sale goodies for last week
is this super cute little
mid-century rice paper lamp.
Works great too!

haha...just when I get away they pull
me back in...couldn't pass up
these cloth vintage suitcases.

I've been watching the PANAM  t.v. show
and just love how they walk with
their little white gloved hand
up in the air and their PANAM
bag hanging from their other arm.
The red bag is TWA.

I was so excited to get this
little lighted tree...I've had
other opportunities to purchase
one but someone else always wanted it more
than I did.
It does have a little light missing
so I am on the hunt for one.

Some of these goodies will be
The Antique Emporium
625 Florida Ave.
Cocoa, FL

Flea market goodies

It was cloudy and breezy,
another perfect day for the flea market.

This garden wheel barrel was too cute
to pass up!

yiiihaaaa...found another fan but this
one is BIG!
 Hubby will have
to re-wire it and do you
think I should remove the rust spots?

The cardboard Chinese checkers board game
was another great find. And it's
in good condition too!

I bought this wine bottle
holder for the texture,
it looks like snake skin! lol

This chippy framed painting is on canvas,
she looks like a cherub don't
you think?
It's signed in the lower right hand
corner so I will have to research it.

This is the second signed Arthur Court piece I have
found this year.
It's bunnies playing on cabbage leaves.

A Royal Copley vase...a bright and colorful piece too!
This one is a keeper and going
into my collection.
And who can pass up cute baby shoes?

Most of these treasures will end up in my Emporium space...

Have a great day,

End of the day purchase

Thank you for
those that came
to the estate sale,
I know some of you
bought lots of goodies!

This was my end of the day
purchase. A 40+ year old Persian rug...
is it called that?
Made in Iran, extremely
heavy and the coloring
is beautiful!
It does need cleaning...

see all those folds?
It's a large one so
there is no room for wishy washy

Hopefully I can find cleaning suggestions on google.

Sigh....I love this time of year, the days and evenings
are much cooler...
my bromeliads are in full bloom,
and we have the prettiest sounding
birds singing during dusk!

Our next estate sale is next week in Viera,
I've heard it's a girly one...
stay tuned!!
