...and these are a few of my favorite things

Happy Vintage Black Friday....oh I am soooo loving fridays! Well, here's my contribution to the day...some of my absolute favorite items...a little tole powder tin that belonged to my Great Grandma..still smells of her powder. Grandpa H.A.P.'s baby shoe marked 1894 on the bottom. I actually have the pair. Then there's my little groom..have no idea where he came from or why I love him sooo much..he's been hanging around my house hiding out on various shelves and in hidden corners for years...maybe he's that guy that my kids say live in the house, you know him, I think his name is "not me". I also love all things black and millinery..adore black hat netting and black velvet ribbons and embellishments. Oh and I almost forgot my spooky spider web rhinestone brooch...been hanging on to this one as well, for that day when "I just know I'll find something to do with this"....well have a wonderful weekend...think black!


  1. Beth ... you've been holding out on me!! I LOVE ALL of your VBF treasures this week and the sentimental meaning behind each one ... very special!

    Hmmmm ... makes me think I better start questioning my dolls to see if their names are "not me" tee-hee.


  2. What beautiful vintage blacks you have! That brooch is wonderful! I love it! And I have to agree, LOL, that little groom doll is eyecatching!! Hugs, Marsha
