  1. oh wow! the paper doll collection is divine!!! i also think the wave set bottle is pretty, and how lucky you were to find such a neat 50s coat pattern!
    thanks for sharing :)

  2. What a lovely finds! Especially those old patterns! These are nowadays hard to find, at least in my area!

  3. What scrumptious vintage treasures you've found. You must have some pretty great places to shop at in your area! Love the crazing on the old porcelain. That kind of patina is interesting and makes me think that the piece was used and cherished by it's previous owner{s}. Lovely photography, too!

  4. Hey, Evie!
    Just wanted to let you know that i've nominated you for the Liebster Award!
    If you've already received it or don't wish to participate, that's fine, too.
    Have an awesome day :)

  5. What incredibly lovely purchases - they all seem to coordinate with each other to the degree that they strike me as looking like a gorgeous vintage capsule collection. I see that with my own buys sometimes, too, as we each tend to me drawn to certain styles, colours, types of items, etc, so it makes perfect sense that they'd jive together as your have here.

    *PS* Don't you wish you could wave a magic wand and have all those paper dolls clothes spring to life in human size? :)
