There’s a new sheriff in town....taking names and kicking butt! Awesome heavy brass pin I refound in one of my many junk boxes.
So I picked up this awesome display unit at Goodwill this morning. Bought it for a song! Now my LP’s in the booth can breath a little bit more instead of living in milk crates. Of course this fixture is gonna domino effect my entire booth so I guess I know what I’ll be doing on my day off tomorrow.
My new favorite vintage teapot I picked up in #Houston #Texas when I was visiting @mahula I’ve only seen these in black or brown so I’m super happy to know it comes in cobalt blue too! It’s really lovely and now on sale in my booth TYL245 at #oldmillantiquemall in #westcolumbiasc
Yes I did!!!! Stumbled upon a stunning Fall 2004 Miu Miu brocade coat today!!!! It doesn’t appear to have even been worn. $48 bucks....seriously???? This goes in the private “to keep” collection. Wow. Pinch me. I’m a lucky bastard!
Just reflecting on the changes of season in thrifting. How to know what to bring in at the right moment....you just never know what’s gonna catch a customers eye. It’s always a gamble depending on who walks thru that door.
Ok that’s plenty for the#eleventhdayofchristmas with #mangers and #mothermary and #miracles Tomorrow is the final #twelfthdayofchristmas and #epiphany for those who were unaware before following this feed. It brings much joy to my heart to remember my mother this way. May you all sleep well tonight with pleasant dreams of loved ones!
I was an artistic kid growing up in NC. We were baptists/assemblies of God but I wanted to be Catholic! I was obsessed with stained glass windows and religious icons of the Holy Mother with Child. Maybe cuz I was the only son in a family of girls I could appreciate the special bond? Anyways...I still love collecting items of Mary with Baby Jesus etc....as you can see here.
Sorry folks, no #elevenpiperspiping to be found here today! Instead we’re gonna go full #girlpower with #mothermary and the #emaculateconception So buckle up for a lot of #mangers #nativity #babyjesus #madonnaandchild etc as we approach #epiphany tomorrow and the #twelfthdayofchristmas
My most recent Maries!
This table belonged to my friend Helen. She sprayed it white last year and put little hooks around the edges to string Christmas beads. She figured since it wasn’t selling in her booth at #oldmillantiquemall just brown she’d spruce it up for the holidays. I loved the idea and told her I’d probably end up buying it myself. Well this year it came home to my place and I went a bit crazy but I love it! There are special people (they know who they are) that made this possible and it brought so much joy to my heart and Holiday! Thank you! Merry Christmas!
In honor of our dear friend/coworker/adopted family Helen Murray I made a little “Patron Saint Of Cats” angel for the top of one of my trees. It’s only fitting since she was indeed a saint to many, many felines. Even when she was getting sicker she’d still find a way to lug bags of cat food to wild colonies of kitties so they wouldn’t go hungry. And of course she had her own “collection” of fur babies at her home that she never got to go back to and say goodbye. So sad. Merry Christmas Helen...your table fulfilled its duty of spreading Christmas cheer this year! I love it and hope I did you proud!
At the Causey Family Christmas Party....pano shots of the festivities. Lesson learned...if you move around too much during this feature, your face melts and you look like Sloth from the goodies.?see if you can find them!

31 days of Halloween begins today! Usually I'd post 30 days of Costume ideas and inspirations but this year I'm just not that organized so I'll compromise with little Halloween things I make or own. You've probably seen one version of this last month but I wasn't 100% happy with it so I added things including the witch! I made a new & improved broom and added the little ghost and pumpkin to the mantle. Also found the perfect little woven basket. Painted it orange, added black ribbon trim and popped in some greenery to balance out the colors of the witch on the left. I just wish the black cat would show up better. Oh well....Happy Halloween 2017 folks! Here we go!
Bwahahahaha!!! So, this is called a "Sport Hands"!!! You're supposed to attach it on your folding beach chair to hold your fishing pole! The other hand has a grip to hold your can of beer. I'm just leaving this here.....do with it what you will your perverts!
Yaaasssss!!!!! Spotted this tiny tin cookie box house at work today locked in a case!!! I've never seen one like this before. Our German grandmother (Oma) would send big boxes of sweets and cookies to us for Christmas in wonderful big lithographed tin boxes but THIS little box is a treat for my eyes!!!!! #germany #germancookies #lebkuchen #vintage #oldmillantiquemall #tinhouse #cookies #lithography #weinachtsmarkt #christmas #oma #sold
Super close up of a vintage faceted cheap disco ball ring...."I wanna live inside color". It makes me happy.
