Happy Day After Thanksgiving

Happy day after Thanksgiving. I hope it was a good day for everyone. We have so much to be thankful for here in the USA.
It's so easy to forget that when we focus on the negatives to the exclusion of the positives.

And just because it's the day AFTER is a set of Christmas wreath vintage jewelry to remind you how close the holidays are. I LOVE Christmas, and I love vintage jewelry so this is great. The set of pin and earrings is from the 1950s and has seed pearls and hand painting. Cool.

For more info, here is the link to the item on Time Was Antiques.

We are going to a Growers Market indoor event today...need some organic potatoes. Have a great weekend and remember our 15% off sale ends on the 30th.

Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Plaques Chrome

Time Was Antiques just added this great pair of British Royal memorabilia plaques or wall plates from our archives. The plaques or plates feature photos under glass of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip in 1953 for the coronation. The thing that is cool about this (besides their being so young) is the punched chrome border with the cutouts being crowns. I am a sucker for unusual things like that. I think they are so cool!!! She was a lovely lady and he was quite handsome. Ah youth. Now in their 80s things have changed. Although the pair has been sold, I did find the Prince Philip one...

for more info about the plaque at Time Was Antiques you can go to:
click on the photo.

A fun link is the Royal Channel on youtube...who knew??? Its been going for a bout 2 years ago. I mentioned it in my newsletter about then anyway. Lots of fun info and videos.
The Royal Channel

Weather this last few days is typically pacific northwest. Rain, then some rain & then a bit of rain. We in Sequim (called the Blue Hole from the view pilots got as they flew by) is better than most of the area. But we love it anyway.

Time Was Antiques will be adding lots of fun stuff as we go through the holidays and we are featuring a 15% or FREE shipping in the USA for orders over $50.00 through the end of November. You can check it out at Time Was Antiques.

Have a great weekend...lots of good seasonal cheer and Christmas arts & crafts shows to visit. Have fun!

Antique Postcards Great Decorating Accents For Christmas

Antique postcards are a great way to add an unusual and nostalgic decorating accent or nostalgic theme to your holiday decorating this year.

Time Was Antiques has Christmas postcards from the 1890s through the 1930s that can be used to decorate your Christmas tree, table tops on stands, inter mix with your cards in a display, stuck in the corners of a mirror or added to a bulletin board. A postcard can be added to a small picture frame and be a part of a table top of shelf display as well.

Postcards were the greeting cards of their era and have some great victorian and edwardian designs. Their snow scenes, poems and greetings speak of another age. It is so fun to read the greetings to family and friends, and look at the addresses.

Postcards are also a very affordable collectible, which in this day and age is nothing to be sneezed at! So think about adding a bit of nostalgia to your decorating this year with a few antique postcards added to your design plans!

To see our current Christmas post card inventory, (which has FREE shipping) visit this clickable link to our Postcards For Christmas category at Time Was Antiques.

Fall continues here in the Northwest. It got down to the low 30s last night. Clear night with stars. Was up early with a sick cat. Sigh....Our cat, who is 14, is like a kid so we are not happy campers at the moment. She's had to be put on thyroid medicine...who knew???

Oh well. Have a great weekend. Some Christmas arts & crafts shows on in town today so that'll be fun! Start the season with some holiday cheer. Have fun!
