I adore vintage. (Part 1)

Here are a few of my favorites that I have received as gifts, or found on treasure hunts. These are not necessarily items of great value, but to me they are priceless.
I gaze lovingly at each one of them every single day, and wanted to share them with you...

               Beautiful bone china repaired the old way...with metal staples



                               Antique painted wooden canisters



                      My prized silver tea set with it's lovely oxidized patina-
                      another one of my daughter's amazing Thrift store finds!




                                Vintage Doctor's bag?



                                        
                My favorite tea cup, a gift from my favorite(and only:) sister




Antique washstand lovingly(and painstakingly)refinished by my Mother



                         Salt and Pepper-shabby style!


      
                              

                 Pretty and delicate china bouquet...a gift from my Auntie






                 Probably not vintage, but I love it just the same.
