Interesting Vintage Decorative Finds

I discovered 5Gardenias on Etsy, a while ago while searching for vintage pieces. Here are some items which would add interest to any decor.

This pretty necklace could be worn as is, a piece of jewelry, or used to adorn a small pile of books on a living room table or in a decorative bowl on a dresser...many possibilities

Something fun for a kids' space or family room or even on a desk.

Anything in this color family always catches my eye..would be great as bud vases or just on their own.

Something with color and texture, perfect for a dresser or nightstand. Could be used as a jewelry box.

Something to add to my growing collection of blue-and-white pieces, perhaps.

This is what I bought from the shop - the London Iron.  I bought this weighty piece to use as a bookend. I love that it is unique and old and that it has 'London' embossed on it, a reminder of one of the places I have lived in (although I have yet to determine whether it is originally from the UK). It will  probably sit on my piano desk.

Thank you for stopping by; please do check back often.
