My new "Found Objects"

I thought I would share with you some new purchases I made recently!!

I was at an antique shop in Pennsylvania and I saw these and just had to have them!!!



They are made from
Antique & Vintage tins.
 Old doll heads, funnels, etc...
Just amazing!!! I will be offering these for sale on my website and for display locally at the antique shop. If you are interested in purchasing just email me.

A couple weeks ago, we took a trip to NY to the Antique Pier Show.
I was overwhelmed with all the incredible textiles they had to offer.
I was drawn to the vintage
prom dresses...
Here are just a few I came across:





This is not a prom dress, but was found in an attic. The lady said it has been tucked away since the early 1900's. It was in almost perfect condition. I JUST LOVED it and am now regretting not buying it!!


I did purchase a beautiful antique boudoir pink ostrich feather fan!! Which I absolutely love!!!



and I purchased this very Bohemian vintage skirt....although I could never actually wear it, but I thought it would look wonderful on one of my dress forms...


I also purchased some antique and vintage dolls, which I am saving for another day!!!

Ooooo! Cheryl
What beautiful prom dresses! I know the feeling of not buying something and 'kicking myself' later on for not buying it. I am a vintage collector too and have boxes of things, some of which are supplies just like you featured. The bisque dolly heads and tin ware, ready to be put together into altered dollies.
I will be emailing you my address for the 'Pay it Forward'
Another blog who sells vintage items is Zany Mayd...her name is Cheryl too! She is actually having a 20% off in her Etsy shop with the code on her blog for the discount. She is a sweetie.
Ta! Ta!
