Happy Vintage Black Friday ...

... Well, here is my first contribution to this wonderful blog party hosted by Jill over at Gypsy Brocante ...

Just love these little black dice ... I often hold them in my hands and just play with them. I just like the way they feel in my hand. As I'm writing this down it just sounds like a weird habbit to me. Do you think it's weird?

This beauty arrived just in time to join this party today. I just could have kissed the mailman yesterday morning ...come to think of it ... he is rather cute. Anyway, this black metal container was used in church to store candles in.

That's it for this Friday. Can't wait for next weeks party! Please go and check out Gypsy Brocante for more VBF contributions or even join in the fun!

Have a great weekend!

Wat een schitterend blik heb je daar. Ik ben weg van dat soort blikken. En die dobbelstenen zijn ook mooi. Niet van die gladde witte maar deze zijn echt mooi. Speel daar maar rustig mee.

groetjes Lia

Welcome ... your items are great ... love the dice! Weird, no way!! You are amongst friends who "talk" to their favorite antiques and "pet" them ... my last trip home from the flea market I rode with a jar of buttons on my lap so that I could "touch" them and look at them at red lights! No, you're not weird ... but we may all be a little strange in our own way ; )

See you next week, thanks for sharing ...

Hi Miranda

Erg mooie bijdrage vind ik het, en de rollende stenen in je hand hebben iets magisch, een soort verbondenheid met??? Helemaal niet raar hoor, lekker laten rollen. Het blik uit 1930 is een beautie!

Geniet van de stenen...

I love the dice - I totally get why you like to hold them in your hand. Texture is everything. It's the same as holding a stone or worry beads.

I love that box - Fabulous!

Hi Miranda
I just love your photos and your beautiful treasures. The black dice are wonderful and the small chest is divine!! You are right.. the mailman was very clever in his timing and I am grateful.

Well I don't think there is anything weird about rolling the dice in your hands. It is a very medatative process.

Have a great weekend. x Julie

Love the dice and no it is not weird. It could be a good stress releaver. I am sure they feel good. Does the trunk smell like candle wax. Church candles, what a lovely thought...julie
