Peacock Tin box and more....

 Lots of estate sales and antique shows so far this summer.  I'm catching up with some of my most recent finds....
 Fabulous tin box - Peacock Silver Polish.

Cordial Cup and Caddy Set.  Very Mad Men-ish.

 Sweet little lady bell, and old General Store Receipt Spike.

 Fancy Art Deco Scissors.

 Delicate Lemon Fork.

 Pair of Victorian spoons engraved "Fannie".

 This little guy showed up one evening in the garden.

 He was there quite a while, sampling all of the flowers and plants.  Then he wandered off.
