Oddities my new favorite show

Oddities is my new Favorite. I love all the odd and strange things they find. Check them out on the Discovery Channel.

I love hunting and finding obscure treasures. I think my oddest find as of late was this iron cobblers shoe for kids shoes. I think about the skills it took to make a shoe the old fashioned way. I wonder if there are any shoes made in America anymore.

Colorful Vintage Glass

I recently stumbled upon some wonderful vintage glasses, ash trays and pitchers. The colors jumped at me and are bright and cheery. After all the rain we have gotten this spring color is what I'm craving. Check out these vintage glass finds I found at etsy. Happy Saturday everyone I'm hoping to hit some estate sales today! Wish me luck!

Estate Sale Jewelry Finds

I found these lovely treasures today. The ring is a poison ring which I love. It opens and has a hiding place for poison perhaps. The two bracelets are Victorian Revival Goldette. They were made by the Circle Jewelry Company New York in the 1950's and 1960's. They were known for their beautiful Revival and Art Nouveau jewelry.

Mushroom finds

I've learned that when it comes to hunting for finds at a yard sale or thrift shop buy what you love. I got these funky wooden mushrooms and I love them. I did put them in my shop, but I really don't mind keeping them. Mushrooms were very popular in the 1960's and 1970's. I see they are making a come back. Mushrooms according to folklore bring good luck. I think so they were my lucky find for the week!
