Treasure Hunt Thursday #2 & A Christmas Treasure

Welcome to the Second "Treasure Hunt Thursday". I was so happy to have everyone who joined in last week - lots of neat treasures for sure!

 * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Here are a few of last weeks treasures 

 Vault 31 found this gorgeous vintage Daniel de Paris wallet for $2.00

Hyacithns For The Soul  featured a treasured tea set
in honor of National Tartan Day

I went to an auction on Saturday. The owner was a collector extraordinaire!!! She had stuff and more stuff. It was a sweltering 90 degrees and of course there was no air conditioning on. I melted!!! But, somehow I stayed alert. How could I hold up my bid card if I had succumbed to the heat!

I didn't buy anything until the last hour. By then everyone was tired, the crowd had dwindled, and the big buyers were out of money or out of room in their big honkin' trucks!!!

I purchased a gorgeous antique oak round table for my second booth at Old Bank Antiques. I also got matching vintage night stands and a second night stand to sell.

Several boxes of junk came home with me because I wanted one item in each box. I enjoy rummaging through to see what else is inside!

This was my little personal treasure for the day.

I adore this sweet vintage Christmas vignette

The boy's choir is serenading on the front lawn

Precious little kneeling angels

These are marked "Italy" on the bottom
They have some scars,  but I still love them

They must be angels to be smiling after
someone cut their bangs too short!!!  : )
Maybe they are praying for wigs!!

There were only two of these cuties stitting on shooting stars

Lots of these odd little guys were attached to the white tree branch

The church is a light and a music box
