Here they are in all their glory!
Catherine's Flying Pig Bank
Abby's Heart Shaped box
Bobby's two-toned mug Grey inside and Cobalt blue...it's darker blue in real life.
My Grey Bubble Mug. The inside is grey, then the outside was painted white, then using a bubble technique with black paint created the bubbles. I painted the handle and my heart "logo" with the grey but several coats for a darker image.
After we picked up the ceramic pieces Bobby and I went to the Antique Marketplace that we love. I came home with a few goodies.
I love the old enamel refrigerator boxes. This was the first time I saw them this small. I have a large on on the back of the toilet upstairs in our bathroom that is perfect storage. These will hold Cotton Balls and Cotton Swabs perfectly!
I love the old yard sticks, and this one is pink & black...and it even mentions a passion of mine - Purses! I want to pick up a black & white one next time I find one, these will look cute whenever I start to work on changing the family room (aka home of mis-matched furniture) into an office/craft room.
As for the billiard balls they are for my apothecary jar...It was time to take the Christmas ornaments out and insert something else....I'm a gamer so these are perfectly fitting. Next would be old dominoes or dice ;)
But here were some other lovelies that we spotted at the Antique Marketplace that I just love.
Here is a croquet set, like I've never seen before. Look at those trendy colors! The mallets were larger than the ones they make now. I really wanted this.
I love these pieces, they were really calling my name. They touch my French and my Irish roots! I love the Fleur-de-lis and the Trefoil...oh how beautiful they'd look with my collection.
I picked up the billiard balls from one of my favorite Shabby Chic corner...but I didn't take any pictures...I guess because I was giddy with finding them for only $8!!! It wasn't a complete set, but when they're stored in the apothecary jar, I knew it wouldn't matter.
So on to my other favorite dealer (which gave me a mild panic attack when his corner was empty - but he moved his spot to one large corner of the store)....Get ready to do some drooling if you love, love, love old finials, windows, gates, grates and the like!
I finally met him and got his card. He has an entire warehouse that can be viewed by appointment.
