A Few Recent Finds

Haven't had much time for junking lately. Stopped by a couple of places on Thursday when I went to the market.

This was my first find, 7 Bliss Victoria Magazines (all of them are over 10 years old, but age does not matter with these).  I'm going to sit back with a cup of tea and enjoy reading the articles and drooling over the pictures, one magazine at a time!
A beautiful white wicker basket (I'm thinking Easter here) to carry the magazines home in!!!

 Volume XI titled Masterpieces ~ The World War  & volume XII titled Five Hundred Best Ancedotes of Modern Eloquence, Published 1923, back when there had only been the Great World War to End all World Wars. Both for the shop.

A beautiful Dictionnaire printed at 6 Rue Des Saints-Peres, 
Paris in 1955. This was apparently stored near pipe tobacco for it has that wonderful spicy-wood scent. This one's for me!!!

A solid brass number 7 and A Hollywood Regency style metal outlet cover.

And this cloudy old bottle with the beautiful neck and top...going to transform this one into an apothecary bottle for Halloween. There sitting on solid maple drawer fronts...I see signs in the future.

Two perfume bottles the Carnation smells wonderful and has made "IN FRANCE" embossed on the bottom. I liked the detail on the other one, sort of looks like a gown draped in folds from the shoulder. This one was empty but still retains a lovely scent.

And finally some odds and end pieces for future projects, everything is sitting on a cabinet door...again, another sign.  The frame, numbers 3, 1, and the upside down 6 (potion #9) are earmarked for future Halloween projects. I think the metal bow (once painted) would look great on a larger piece of furniture. A nice little haul for stopping only at two places very quickly!!!

Thanks for stopping by~~~
Happy Hunting and Gathering!!!
