I get so excited when I find the vintage balls, it isn't as often as it used to be, maybe there are more collectors out there like us. Anyway I love those colors and they look to be in good shape.
You found some lovely things..how great are those paper dolls?

Hi Diane,

The only way I can find them is on Ebay these days. Arizona is a retirement community and most snowbirds dump their precious cargo of vintage goodies before they land and nest here. Your grandpeep is lovely, as are you......and pink does become you quite nicely.

Have a wonderful week,
Meri

Your magnet was on and in full force. Those are the Saturday Finds colors if ever. But that trim is divine. I can only imagine what you will do with them. Glad you enjoyed some time with crafts and kiddos...smiles...Renee

oh, you always find the best treasures!!!

Protector of Vintage said...

Lovely finds, as usual! You and your granddaughter look pretty in pink!!

Cindy said...

Great finds! What beautiful colors for Christmas balls. When you say estate sale, does that mean auction? We have not gone to auctions yet, but should because we probably pay too much at antique stores.

debi said...

Diane, your grand daughter is adorable...they are the greatest thing....

Love the bulbs....never seen that pink color before...great find.

Have a blessed week ~

Hugs!!

Hi Dianne,

I love these vintage glass balls. I have been looking for mercury glass beads. they are expensive on e-bay, and I don't need a ton of them. They sell them in lots of 10 ft and more. I am not going into business, I just need a few for crafts. I wish they sold them in smaller lots. I love your things, and have one of your little Christmas baskets. Your grandaughter is adorable!

I think your paper dolls may be the original set of Lennon sister paper dolls....
