I have a real love of anything vintage and have various collections of items from days long gone.
Here is a short list of just some of the things I collect:
- vintage jewellery
- vintage postcards
- Christmas jewellery
- vintage Christmas decorations
- vintage greeting cards
- vintage scraps
- vintage handkerchiefs
- children's Christmas picture books
- Fenton ducklings
- small creamer jugs
- swap cards
- Ceramic girls/angels from the 1940's & 1950's
- Anything that takes my fancy LOL!
A collection within a collection - a very small sample of my Christmas tree pins.
A tiny sample from my extensive vintage jewellery collection. Within my jewellery I have many sub- collections which started quite by accident. I have collections of ballerinas, scotty dogs, butterflies and bugs for example.
This lovely lady is my favourite of my 1950s ceramics. Picked up for a song on ebay. Sadly I have never seen any further examples of this quality since.
A small selection of vintage valentine cards.
A small sample of my owls. This collection began when I was still in my teens.
I have a huge collection of victorian scraps, calling cards and postcards.In this small grouping I LOVE the pansies. They are a cutting from an old seed catalogue. Reproductions abound and I prefer to collect the genuine article. Occasionally I will buy reproductions for use in art and craft work.
Wishing you sunshine in your shadows
