Antique & Old things #2

Hello, and Welcome to another segment of “What neat treasures have you Found today?” You can read the #1 Here.

First Up!
This is a Wedding Favor that my grandmother had on display in her home. You strike the match on the lid. I LOVE that its classically Monogrammed. I fell in love with its simplicity. I would hand out matches like this at my wedding (to the adults only of course!). :)

Next, a pair of Vintage Cay-eye glasses I purchased for my Halloween Costume (1950s housewife/ Betty Crocker. :)
Sadly I think they were child-sized! Didn’t fit my face too great, a bit short! Maybe I have a big head? Anywho, I love all the detail on them. :)



I found this necklace in an antique store in Montclair, NJ (i think?) :) .. I cant imagine its that old, but i love it all the same. :) The chain can be removed and it becomes a brooch as well!


This is a Sweater clip (or sweater guard depending on who you ask), I got it for my halloween costume, but I still use it on my cardigans. :)

Stay tuned for more descriptions. I added all of the photos to my Antiques Page up top near my Bio, but these posts will describe in more detail what they are and where I found them. :) If you want to purchase any, let me know. :) Some ARE for sale.

  1. Dara, you always find the greatest things! I LOVE how you took the pictures with “Alice” on the background and particularly that page exactly! :-)

  2. I enjoyed reading this write-up, I was just itching to know do you ever trade featured posts? I’m always trying to find someone to make trades with and simply thought I’d ask.
