March...... soon to be April..... where did it go?

Wow! How time fly's when you are involved with soccer!!
It was just the beginning of March a day or so ago..... now it's nearly April!!
My son is in the U12's and my husband took on the Presidents
 role of Westside Devils Junior Soccer Club last year.
I swore and declared that I wouldn't help or take
 on a position because I have a business to run.....
 hahahaha..... famous last words!
Needless to say all we do is soccer stuff, we talk soccer only.....
and I took a couple of days off when we had a long weekend
 and guess what??? we pumped up 100's of  soccer balls!!!!!
Oh well...... Mackenzie will only play soccer for a few more years!

Now down to business.....
This pair of 1940's plaster bookends are absolutely gorgeous.
They are in very good condition for their age....
with minor cracks and the odd chip.

Wouldn't they look lovely in a girls bedroom or
 if you collect plaster figures I bet you don't have a pair of these!

Mary Gregory Enamel handpainted vase....
Depicting a boy in a garden....

These vases have been handpainted in very intricate detail.
They are a milk glass (one has damage to the rim).
Would be lovely on a mantlepiece.

The top of this depression glass comport
 has been dipped in a beautiful golden yellow color.
I could imagine this full of fruit or sweets...
Great to dress up a table....

Have a great week!


  1. I love the compote. It looks like a crown.
    I think it would look great with grapes hanging off the sides.

  2. love the milk glass vases! Gorgeous!
