Linking up with Faded Charm for White Wednesday and Show & Tell Friday @ My Romantic Home (links on sidebar) to show you some goodies.
I know we are having a heat wave here in Connecticut ~ but I am diggin' it! No, I don't live on the shore or have a glorious inground pool ~ I just love the hot. We don't get it all the time here, so when it finally comes, I am like a cockroach ~ I thrive.
So, yesterday (after making brownies & tater salad for a later picnic) I decided that new photos for French Bleu Vintage were needed. I have soooo many new (old) things from the Flea etc. just getting stockpiled. Time to show & tell:
Lookie at this old gal ~ fantastic doesn't describe her. I always wanted a Santos figurine but they were SO expensive. Plus I could never tell if they were really vintage or just a $$$ catalog knockoff. Now, I could be wrong, but I think She is authentic. The wood is really worn down, dirt still in her face, a tad wobbly - plus I have no idea where her arms are. I also got a lesson in her history. Apparently, the skirt fabric color would be changed by the Parish workers to coincide with a particular religious celebration. Also, no hair because she had a real hair wig with halo once. The wings did not come with Her. I actually found them a few tables away and the woman gave me a great deal so home they came. Im not sure I am sold on them even though they look perfect.
Also, I am loving this "Home Sweet Home" sign SO much that I bought 3 for the shop and one for me. The rusty metal accent just makes it POP!
I have had these fantastic Collage Art Charms, made by a local collage artist, in the storage room for so long and never got around to listing them ~ what is wrong with me??? They are great. I especially love the "NEST" charm. I just realized how much bird themed items I have. I think I need a whole department just for them.
Forecast says is going to be another scorcher here ~99 really is pretty hot for CT (although I know some of you live in areas where that is downright chilly:) but now I am kind of wiped out. I think I'm going to stay inside the nice a/c for awhile and catch up on my blog reading and list some new items. I do feel a little guilty about that, the kids are home and no work today. I guess I'll give in and let them play video games until the caffeine kicks in.
