Ahhhh, That's Better....


I thought I ought to quickly get my blog back to all things vintage and pretty after yesterdays interruption! Thank you to all for your thoughts on the mystery object. I am going with the suggestions of Nancy, Peggy, Kristy and Mary, that it is an old fashioned chest drain. Not a nice thought really and I am so glad that medical advances have been made!
Corners of my home.

  2. This is more like the you we know!! But I was fascinated by the bottles and possibilities.

    That reminds me, I have 4 boxes of old bottles in the store waiting to be looked at and hopefully sold somewhere. Not sure what there is, although I do remember there are a few Bovril bottles.

  17. Hi Nikki! I just clicked on your link and voila! You are back! I have caught up on your posts and have to tell you that you are brilliant and so inspiring! Like you, I sew and make tote bags, pillows and other things. Years ago I made dolls and just last week told myself that I am going to do that again. Your pictures gave me just that inspiration! I am going to be giving away something I made here in the next few weeks. So, check back with me and pass it along.....smiles to you! Glad you had a wonderful time this summer! Blessings across the miles, Becky

  22. Are those little, black, stuffed shoes cute or what?! Are they actual children's shoes stuffed with a fabric tube topped with flowers?

  23. Hi Wanda,
    Thanks for your comment - yes, those are real baby shoes! They are stuffed with pink silk and topped with vintage ribbon flowers to use as a pin cushion. They actually came from a girl in the States.
