The two yellow crochet edged cases are blank and perfect for adding some embroidery, and the middle one already has a pretty pink embroidered bouquet.The southern belle is a set of two and she’s painted on… apparently that was all the rage in the 50s.
I’m looking forward to it being hot enough again, so that I can fan myself too, but now I need a fan.
These cases will be put in my etsy shop.
I found this box of around 100 spoons.
They were selling them individually, but I made an offer and got the lot for a great price.
I knew some were silver plate when I took a quick look through, but I was very happy when I got home to find that actually about half of the spoons were silver plate.
A few of the special and/or vintage ones will be kept or sold, and the rest will be used in projects.
This one with the white and pink bassinet at the top is my favourite.
It looks quite old and the paint is very chippy.
It’s silver plated and marked Great Britain. The bowl is engraved with the word Congratulations
There’s a baby and blanket inside, but I couldn’t get a good pic of that.
I’ll have to try again before I list it in my etsy shop, but I think I’ll enjoy it for a little while first.
These vintage salad tongs are all silver plate and will be going into my etsy shop.
I’ll be keeping these two handmade Christmas poinsettia place mats.
They’re so pretty. Someone did some very nice work.
I couldn’t resist these two square hand embroidered table cloths. Even though I don’t embroider myself I have a real respect for the craft.The vintage crocheted yoyo doll jumped into my basket, and I didn’t have the heart to put him back.I planned to take him apart and use the yoyos for something that I haven’t thought of yet, but I didn’t have the heart to do that either… so he has a temporary reprieve.By the look on his face I think he’s quite annoyed that he picked my basket to jump into. lol.
