Recent Scores

Just because I've been busy over the holidays for gift shopping doesn't mean I stopped Shopping for my home?!

Embroidered Blue and White Chinoiserie art work
 One of my most favorite finds. I might need to have this remounted , but looks really intricate and beautiful up close!

Tarnished Brass Lady Bug

Gold Grapes

Large Brass Bag

Brass Mouse Hook

And for the piece de resistance....

A lot of PINK MILK Glass compotes and goblets!

I have always loved PINK MILK Glass and I just could not find any at the right price! Now, I have!

And finally, I posted this on my INSTAGRAM ACCOUNT before Christmas...

... it was $75 then and you all asked me to get it! I didn't, right away, and waited for a sign it was gonna be mine. So after New Year, I went to the store, and the same tree was still there (the green was sold earlier), at 25% off. I offered $50, and they gave it to me! Whooppee! This is what I call FATE (and perhaps a little bit of luck too)!!!! Patience (with luck) is indeed a virtue!

How about you, any recent scores you'd like to share?

Happy Shopping!


 Would love to hear your thoughts! Please share away...


  1. I have never seen pink milk glass before, but now I have to have some! As for the Christmas trees, I made one of those years ago, and I have no idea where it went, but I wish I still had it!

  2. Looks like you've had lots of fun shopping, Vel! I believe the Christmas tree purchase was indeed meant to be. LOL!!!

  3. The blue and white embroidery is gorgeous! I'm shopped out for the moment, although I'm currently pricing bamboo shades for the office. Not nearly as fun as finding pretty little treasures like yours!

  4. Great finds, Vel. That milk glass is really very unique. Great bargain on the tree, too...patience is certainly the key!
