This morning's loot shoot reveals itself in pale pinks and blues, with a sprinkling of tiny liberty style flowers. I bought some of the loot yesterday, and some today, in a series of fairs.
I think my three favourite pieces are the mannequin, the little pink jacket that is probably an old piece of theatre costume and my chandelier.
But there again, I am more than fond of the chandelier and wall appliqué that I found, as well as this wonderful old wooden box, originally used to hold toiletries for a 'pensionnaire' meaning a school boarder.
and this little blue alarm clock, and the match box in the same powder blue
Lots of tiny pastry moulds, and a nice desk calendar with the months in French;
and this rather special, small trinket cup. Standing about 3" high, it's like a wide egg cup.
I believe it to be Napoleon III, around 1880.
Wherever I go at the moment, I pick up old kitchen whisks; so charming,
and I like this pair of embossed tin trays, that would be pretty at Christmas time, adding a bit of vintage sparkle.
Thank you to all of you who take a special interest in my loot shoots. Laying the loot out is so much more fun when I know that other people enjoy it too.
And by the way, several people left me comments or mails asking about pieces last week, but their addresses were anonymous or no-reply. You are very welcome to contact me about anything in the loot shoot, but if you would like an answer, please make sure I can get back to you!! :) Thank you!
