V V V Treasury of Vintage Vessels and Vases
I have been creating a lot of treasuries on etsy lately. I enjoy grouping objects in an attractive way as if I was making a window display for an "offline shop." I enjoy trying to find new shops to turn the spotlight on. I try to include "older" (meaning they have been for sale for a while) items as well as affordable (my definition, not what an AIG exec considers affordable!) things.
This morning, the spotlight I created is called V V V for Vintage Vessels and Vases. Once again, I had a blast searching through the vintage category on etsy for vases and bowls. Now that Spring has arrived, although you can't really tell by the weather in NYC, I will be searching for vases in which to place bouquets of fresh flowers. I never seem to have enough vases and they are often basic, utilitarian pieces rather than the lovely items I found for this treasury.
The ruby glass bowl above is from Cheshire Cat Antiques & Collectibles and is inlcuded in the new V V V treasury.
