As I am preparing to get my accessories in order, I have re-found some treasures I am so thrilled to be able to share with you. These adorable original watercolor paintings are signed, numbered, and were in terrible glass/enamel frames that caused water damage in a couple of places...however, through the magic of digital "photographic surgery" VOILA! They are perfect for printing, framing and hanging! I fell madly in love with the dutch-y sweetness of the two:
AND, I found these on Saturday whilst dodging tornadoes:
Sorry about the poor blurry pics...for those of you with wonderful antique malls and flea markets, I would love the little red riding hood or the "hey diddle diddle" (man in the moon looking jar) cookie jars. Please let me know if you find one and what the price is of said cookie jar. :-) Sometimes you can find them fairly inexpensively (cookie jars were half price the day I went shopping...couldn't find anything remotely similar to ANY of these...of course) and sometimes they are a fortune...like this one: starting bid $499.00!
There ARE a lot of reproductions out there, but I don't car if my jar is truly vintage or not...the only thing I WOULDN'T like is if I PAID A PRICE like it was vintage then found out it was a cheap knock off! Here's an article about real vs. phoney...I thought it was interesting...
Anyway, hope you've enjoyed this mini game of "show n tell". I'll be back tomorrow with some more red and aqua treasures...they are WONDERFUL! YAY!
