Its that time, to do a little collection sharing. I just chose 4 of mine.
The first is a collection of flat replica houses - or shelf huggers. The far right shows the pink house from Battery Lane in South Carolina that I was thinking of sharing yesterday for pink saturday. All the houses and trees are replicas from South Carolina with the exception of the low and long building in the front. That is Oakdale Elementary here in Bridgetown where all of my 4 kids have attended. My kids god-father started giving me one of these for each Christmas after we had spend our summer vacation down on Kiawah Island, S.C. I should have told my daughter Morgan to get me another one when she went down there for her
Senior trip last summer as we did not vacation there.
They sit up high in the dinning room on top of our hanging antique corner shelf.
Small collection that has not been added to since the 90's as the cvintage compacts I kept choosing were TOO EXPENSIVE for me to NOT feel GUILTY about buying. The two on the left I bought and the other two were gifts from friends.
I have to say my favorite is the top one on the right, with the blue and rose disc, because...
Its very unique with the metal mesh that droops underneath - has an animal skin lining where the powder rests.
All four compacts have the original powder puff, some powder and their
Small bottle/vase collection. I like them old and with a unique shape.
Another shot of them...the tall one on the right is an antique baby bottle. Next to it on the left is unique - it is a triangular shape! Love the color of the cranberry glass, I had a lovely cobalt blue one but unfortunately I was a "butterfingers" one day a couple of months ago while cleaning it and - CRASH!!!
I also collect small pitchers/creamers and most of these have been gifts from DH - the pirate one of course - the kids' god-father and my mother-in-law.
These three are my favorites though - I found the one at a tiny antique store and was NOT about to pass it up, I mean would you if it had YOUR last name on it?!! The tiny littel white one is just so cute and the lovely cottage inspired one was a Christmas gift from the kids' god-father. Most of these do get used.
