errrrrp --- rrrrrrrp  ( a version of ribbit ) -- a welcoming call to April, just up the road a bit. Some happy new spring vintage finds just listed this week in 5gardenias, Vintage cement frog garden ornament, vintage crochet dove panel , antique beveled glass mirror1960s mod daisy brooch-

wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!


  today I photographed these vintage pink gloves-- they were very patient with me. they were such lovely models I'm not sure I will part with them now.... go figure.


I  finished a pair of custom earrings the other day for a lovely customer-- then I decided to photograph them for good measure. Sweet little bumpy pods- irregular, earthy and just a touch elegant.


I'm a terribly old fashioned girl-- I just can't help but love old old and older things and yet I could
 easily live in a minimalist modern setting. What is this contradiction in me? Probably no way to resolve it except to give in to it all!

Recently listed lovelies from 5gardenias vintage above-- a fabulous antique organdy jabot/collar a vintage apothecary/ laboratory bottle with ground stopper and a romantic Victorian papered dresser keepsake or jewelry box, and last and maybe sweetest of all --a vintage cement swan garden ornament, worn from years of sun and rain, and seasons of change..

Wishing you a restful sleep and a lovely day tomorrow!
