Little Treasures

The Holiday Season is upon us! With the rain, I have had to go to the malls to walk this week and the holiday decor is up...including fabulous Santa villages! Can't wait to take Cameron for his first Santa visit. I wonder if he will cry? After an entire weekend spent antiquing: Friday night auction until midnight, Flea Market started back Saturday morning and it was SMOKING HOT for treasures...I haven't bought that much stuff out there in a very long time, and then another auction Saturday night till midnight again! Needless to say, I will be spending most of this coming weekend pricing new items for the booth and then re-arranging and sprucing it up. I purchased over 1000 books last weekend...a couple go back to the 1700's!! - and several from the 1800's. Obviously, I will be adding a lot of books. ANYWAY, thought I would share a few photos of items I am currently working with; either for the booth or on Ruby Lane.
Enjoy and have a wonderful day!
Finally decided to sell it out of my personal collection.

I liked this image because of the dog. :)

White Gold, Amethyst and Diamonds. Don't you need
an elegant but flashy cocktail ring for parties?

Oh, pretties!

That ring is lovely! Somehow I doubt that it's anywhere near a price-range I can afford, or anywhere near my size. I like girly rings, but there's just not that many in the 9 - 10 range :)

Laura, That sounded like a blast!!! Today was my first big antiquing day in a long time, and I definitely got that "antiquing high" I hadn't had for quite some time. It's amazing that you & Darby don't have back pain from all those books. WOW!!! That must have been like Christmas going through all those!!!

Beautiful photos!!!!

What a fun weekend! I haven't had that much excitement in months... Looking forward to going to the flea market this coming weekend - Hopefully they'll be some treasures left to uncover!
