Here's one of the GORGEOUS illustrations:
Dolls: ( I know...I'm NOT a doll person, but how could I resist?)
The little ones at the bottom right corner are kind of like game peices or Cracker Jacks toys. They have different styles of dress and they represent different Scandinavian countries and Early America. The large blonde doll head kind of looks like Sandra Bullock, don"t you think?
Look at this sweet couple...kind of a dutch Jack and Jill...
I am soooo pleased to say that I am FINALLY a member of the Creepy Baby Head Society. I have been on the lookout for a suitably creepy-but-not-so-creepy-as-to-give-my-children-nightmares doll head, and I do believe I did it. This little (actually big) one had just the right amount of crackling and wisps of what appeared to be human ( ick?) hair as to be truly creepy. I don't want to offend anyone, so I won't tell you the nickname Tiffany gave him...
A cool metal menu box, some pink (LOVE!) mecury glass beads, and some Christmas stuff:
Old tin, rhinestone jewelry, and a fabulous set of old typewriter keys:
an old baby gift box:
Prayer cards, postcards, medals and charms:
Some paper dolls:
And, finally, because it WAS, er...WILL BE my birthday, Tiffany made me this cute purse and gave me a few goodies, too:
Go check out her hilarious post about the purse here. Too funny! Thanks so much for my goodies and for the weekend...I had such a great time, Tiffany! I can't wait til we do it again!
Thanks for bearing with me, everyone! I'll be listing many of these goodies in the next few days (not ALL of them, though!). So, be sure to check my Etsy shop, and if you see anything you must have, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and if it's something I'll be listing, you can have first dibs on it!
Also, since my birthday is coming up, check back because I'm going to be doing a GIVEAWAY of some of this fabulous stuff, and more! You will NOT want to miss this! I'll let you know as soon as I get stuff together...
