Galvanised zinc bed warmer, I love these on display under the French bedside tables -
Set of three small blue and white storage tins, they are so cute -
I found two adorable little baby bonnets as well. They are tiny as you can see, for newborn babies. I don't have any dolls, so I used a candle to photograph them on :-) -
This one is delicate crochet -
This one is the most delicate fine cotton fabric, beautifully embroidered and in fabulous condition -
A boxed set of 12 mid century cake forks -
This next one is one of my favourite finds, a really early 19th Century ( possibly 18th Century ) ornate iron coat hook. I think it is fabulous and I wish I knew in what beautiful places it was used in the past -
This quite large cross is beautifully inlaid with brass and has lovely banding ( I think satinwood but I am not sure ) -
I am not sure what this little pouch was used for, perhaps handkerchiefs or silk stockings, but it is such a sweet little thing, embroidered with butterflies -
This old spirit lamp made me giggle, part of the inscription says it is guaranteed not to explode! -
I can never walk past these beautiful little benitiers ( Holy Water fonts ). This one bears a medal of St. Therese -
Could you have left this box of threads in lovely shades of grey behind? Nope, me neither ;-) -
Three gorgeous red striped monogrammed linen towels -
Oh, and this sweet embroidered shelf trim, I love the cute little sporty figures! -
These old needle keep/thread winders are so tactile, so smooth from years of being handled I suppose -
Lace is getting so difficult to find in our area, I only managed to get a few small lengths -
And last, but most definitely not least, my two favourites. OMG, I adore these so much!
A fabulous 1950s hat covered in delicious white flowers, never used it seems, as it still has an original paper price label inside -
and this utterly gorgeous Holy Communion head dress in equally fabulous condition -
There you have it, a rather eclectic, but much loved, collection of brocante finds.
Oh, I did get one more thing, a sweet little child sized basket, but I thought it would look perfect filled with Easter chocolates for our neighbours two boys, so that is what happened to it -
Thanks for stopping by! Toodlepip xxx
Ah, and because for me, the French brocantes are so full of vintage inspiration, I am linking this post to My Salvaged Treasures Vintage Inspiration Party No. 185.
