Treasures

Today Sue
from
took me to one of her favorite shops

I found a few treasures
This glass box was $9
I plan to put it on my dressing table








This had a tag on it saying it was
An Art Nouveau Victorian tieback
however it is like one my grandmother had
and it actually attaches to the rod between 
the panels as a decoration
or it can be used to slide and
 hold back  the panel


I have been looking for one for years
and was surprised to find it for $3.95



This metal piece I got for $3.50
I believe it is a back for a drawer knob



Thanks Sue for showing me a new place
to find treasures!

  9. That little box is so lovely, and I like those metal pieces too! I always pick up stuff like that because I like putting them on birdhouses as a vintage-y touch!
    Happy VTT!

  14. Your trinket box is lovely. I know I have seen vintage perfume bottles with stoppers that match your top. It probably is from a lovely set.

    Blessings!

  18. What lovely finds! The cartouche (the backing for a drawer handle or a key lock) is especially pretty. Wonderful to use in a mixed media project.
