Flea Market Friday

It's that time of the week again! Got some goodies to offer ...
Here is my Parisienne Latte tussie mussie. I particularly like this one because it's both elegant and rustic at the same time. It is 8" long, not including the bottom streamers or the hanger.
It is constructed on a sturdy papier mache form, and covered with a lovely piece of Anna Griffin french style paper. It has been embellished with lots of trims, cords, vintage crepe paper ruffles, and silk bows and rosettes.
The various shades of coffee coloured silk ribbons on the bottom hang from a mini-bead covered wooden ball, with beads and bells.
The price of this piece is $20, including shipping to the continental United States. It is available here.

This charming vintage miniature bisque doll is only 1 7/8" tall! She's a little cowgirl, wearing her rodeo hat and lucky blue jeans. The dark space by her hand (which I hadn't ever noticed until I saw the scan!) is not a chip - it's a flaw in the original paint. Though she is in good shape (no chips, cracks, etc.) she does show age-appropriate wear.

The cost of the cowgirl is $10, including shipping within the continental United States. She is available here.

And another miniature! A really wonderful miniature clown vase. He's happy and smiling and glad to be displaying whatever sprigs you put in him! He's painted bique - and only 1 3/8" high!...a perfect size for those delightful tiny wildflowers that are too small for a "real" vase!

The price of the happy clown vase is $10, including shipping within the continental United States. He is available here.

This is really the day for miniatures, isn't it?! This delightful china (porcelain? frankly, I can't tell the difference) footed teacup is only 2 3/4" tall. It has a lovely scene with gold ornamentation in the decorative painting.

This miniature teacup is $12, which includes shipping within the continental United States. It is available here.

This pair of small brocade shades are brand new. They are a sort of green/bronze/cream fabric with neutral trim on the top and bottom. They are 5" high x 5" across at the bottom and 3" across at the top. They have light bulb clips on the inside. I got these for a candle shade holder and they were too big.

The price for the pair is $12, which includes shipping in the continental United States. To purchase, click the "buy now" button (this item will not be listed in my Etsy shop).

That's it for today, folks. Hope you have a swell day shopping all the various flea markets that are happening. And check back tomorrow for Beverly's Pink Saturday! Who knows - I may get a blogging urge this afternoon as well. At this age, one never knows when the urge will hit!

Remember - make something today that makes you smile!

I'm still politely tittering over "At this age, one never knows when the urge will hit!" Growing older is such an adventure.

I also like the tussie mussie. And the music you play here. And... well, I'm so glad you're back to your energetic self.
