Delft's Blue Finds & a few studio pics...

I went to a yard sale a couple weeks ago and an elderly lady was selling part of her delft blue collection.  I don't know a thing about them, but they were pretty & I thought I could use some for my bottle brush trees.  I bought a few small ones that caught my eye.  I may end up selling some on Etsy but just not sure.  Are they anything special or just tchotchkes?  Any help on this would be appreciated!!

Markings...

Tiny swans~ just 2" tall



2" egg cups~set of 4
So tiny!

The little dutch shoes are at home in my printers shelf with my other miniatures.  Nothing is over 2 1/2 inches tall, so they are little.  If you have any info for me on these, I'd love to hear from you.  

Next is a couple of thrift store finds for my studio.  As I write this, paint is drying on both of these items!!
This will be totally full of scissors!

For my stamps...                    




 Although I'm still tweaking, here are some studio pics...

 

The last thing I'll share today is my rainbows...
I have an arched window in the studio which cried out for crystals.  It makes a lovely effect on the walls & ceiling, even into the guest room across the hall.

Have a wonderful week!
Blessings,
Cindy

Hi Cindy! Thanks for coming over to say hi! Those Delft swans are adorable. How come I never find great stuff like that at yard sales???? I also like how you organized your craft space. Everything is at the tip of your fingers!
