These pictures aren't actually "Sunday" pictures, they're pictures I took on Friday afternoon when I restocked my booth at the antique mall. (And they aren't from my booth.)
Above is a 1920's boudoir doll. The boudoir doll was not a doll for little girls, it was meant as a decor item. Here's an article about the history of the dolls that I thought was interesting and kind of explains the dolls development in terms of events that were going on at the time.
This is Victorian diorama featuring a fox in a nature setting, found in my friend Susan Walter's booth. I know this isn't everyone's cup of tea, but the Victorians and their fascination with nature, and the way they brought it into their homes fascinates me.
I've been calling this "Fox in a Box". Dr Suess meets the 1890's.
I posted about a great book about displaying under glass here, and this book shows pictures of not just birds, foxes and other wildlife, but actual taxidermied dogs.
I would rather just remember my pets with pictures.
Sorry about the glare- hard to take pictures of things under glass, especially that old handmade glass.
Another of Susan's vignettes- shells in an urn.
Love the simplicity of this, the title page of a 1778 book with a medal placed on top.
This caught my eye because I've been on the look out for stamps for Other Karla's mom who has a large stamp collection. I hadn't really paid attention to them before, but some stamps are little works of art, and I'd like to try crafting with some.
And in the catergory of "If one is good, two is better", I love this mix of old badger hair shaving brushes.
And this picture- I love it all! Not a single thing that I wouldn't be happy to squeeze into my already full house.
