A Quick Doily Update

The vintage paper doilies that I showed you the other day are now available in 20 piece assortments in my Etsy Teapots & Telephones shop.

In addition to the ones above, I also have an assorted collection of 10 different styles of doilies.

Both assortments are available now. If you need larger quantities than what I have listed, please send me an Etsy convo. I have lots of the top assortment, and fewer of the bottom one. I have a feeling that both assortments are going to be very popular, so if you're interested, don't wait too long!

Heureux Anniversaire

So, I bought a necklace a few weeks ago on Etsy, made by French seller lesjardinsdeleanor. It arrived on Friday, which was my birthday. A tag attached to the packaging coincidentally said "Heureux Anniversaire" (Happy Birthday in French). 

The necklace is absolutely stunning. It has a vintage lucite pendant with an actual angel fish inside:

Very special vintage beads along the sides:

And a pretty silver flower clasp in the back:

I wore it out for a sushi dinner on my birthday, thinking it very appropriate and festive with the fish theme.

All of lesjardinsdeleanor's necklaces are 50% off right now, and she has some really special ones available. She also has a good variety of unique vintage jewelry bits and findings too, for those of you who make assemblage jewelry.

Recent eBay Score

I won a very exciting eBay auction recently. It was for a HUGE lot of vintage paper doilies. Here they are in their original boxes.

Here they are inside the boxes.

There are hundreds and hundreds of them, all aged to varied shades of ivory and cream.

I have some other patterns of vintage paper doilies already, so I will make some little assorted packs to sell. I think they will go into my Etsy "Teapots & Telephones" shop. Keep an eye out for them very soon!
