Wanted to share a few more of my cool collectibles with you.
I will be decorating with these items in my new home.
Then I have been collecting items for a while for a very vintage nautical style bathroom. I also have been collecting these vintage celluloid carved shell scenes.These shells were made to look like they were carved out of ivory, but were in fact made of a type of plastic material known as celluloid. I now have about 7 of these in my collection.
The clam shell scenes will most likely be displayed in some sort of a glass front case..if I can find one that is.:0) As they are quite old.Or at least on a shelf of some sort.
Then I have a few other items for my nautical themed bath. A seahorse and I have collected a few nautical themed Victorian trade cards as well. I have found in my searches that it is rather difficult to find old/vintage seahorse items.So when I found this old tin seahorse wall hanging I snagged it.Then..not really in a "collection".... but this is something that I have wanted to have one of for quite a long time...I was delighted to find a very old hand pump that will be used in either the kitchen for decor, or in the garden.(my husband is not fond of the purple color and I must admit I am not either, but I was told that it is the original paint on the pump...I must say I find it rather odd that a pump this old would have been painted purple don't you?) I may wind up painting it a bright red color if I decide to use it in my kitchen though.
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share a few fun things with you.
I hope you have a lovely weekend!
