I found a few fun bottles to add to the atmosphere. That's about as far as my decorating goes for the big spooky night!
But I did find some spectacular things with a Victorian vibe farther afield this weekend, like this little wonderfully crocheted and beaded drawstring purse with a fabulous beaded tassel at the bottom.
There is a mix of frosty and white beads that seem almost otherworldly. The heft is wonderful, and looks to be right out of a movie where a Jane Austin character pulls out a hankie or a little pencil from it to jot a note with.
The little ties have bead work too.
Here are close-ups of the body where you can see the thread work.
There are elevated ridges in the design,
and this is the gathering at the top. YUM!
These lovely chiffon gloves have a ghostly air about them too. The girls will love dressing up with them!
I should tell you that I seem to often give myself the biggest challenge of photographing all white things. It is quite a tricky thing to do, and not always that successful!
This time I have thrown frosted glass into the mix, but these really are the ghostly things that turned up at the flea this weekend!
A luscious etched bud vase of satin glass.
All things perfect for a spooky bride perhaps. . . .
But wait! There's more!
Another fab find is this antique perfume decanter by Guerlain, Paris from 1870-1880. You can see the winged lady on the bottle in this view, and a few more details below. Guerlain used this bottle with different labels for all their scents at the turn of the century. I was thrilled to find it!
I don't mind at all being haunted by lovely things from the past!
I'm off spending a little time with the ghouls, but I'll be back soon!
So nice that you stopped by!
