Always fun to add to a collection....

When a new collection is started or one decides to expand a current is always fun to find something special.... and at a steal of a deal... great price.After all what gal doesn't like a deal..and finding fun things to decorate with??

I love vintage items..things with a past...and with "character".

Things that I can create little displays with soon ..and dream about decorating a new home with soon.These items are being tucked away to take to a soon to be new home.So that when I move..I can have a few "new to me" items to unpack and start afresh with.

So..I have been slowly,but surely finding inexpensive little things to expand upon my Dutch themed collection.

And a few wee things here and there to expand upon my Victorian themed collection.

Here are a few new wee things I have found recently.

A 1940's Dutch scrapbook unused but with a lovely print on the front! I will display a set of kissing dutch boy and girl figurines in front of the book and use the book as a "backdrop" for them.
A pair of Dutch boy planters from Japan.

And for my Victorian theme collection..a darling vintage die cut image of a little girl... that measures nearly a foot tall! wow!! It is lovely don't you think?
And the best part...all of these items fall into the vintage/unique category....and... ta-dah!!!.....aren't from Walmart! yay! ..ha.
Well..I hope that you all have an absolutely lovely evening.
Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share my new found fun items with you.
