I wanna be the old-clock-face-antique-lace-old-baby-shoe-&-baby dress whisperer!

Do you think I can be?
If sweet Karla can be the gorgeous rhinestone jewelry
and amazing vintage hat whisperer....
maybe I can!
Of course, I may need to add old sheet music,
old dilapidated books, old glass jars and
of course, old buttons to my list too :)

By the way, did you know one of my favorite books is
For the Love of Old?

I wanted to share with you a few goodies I've found recently ~
Look at the GORGEOUS graphics on this pocket watch face....

Watch faces like these are my FAVS!!!

I found this old bottle a while back and it had some kind of red dye inside ~
after wrestling with the rusted old top for days and days,
I finally got it off and cleaned it up....
don't you love the shape?

Plus, I received the sweetest gift in the mail!!!!
My dear friend Colette of A Bird in The Hand
sent me the most precious care package!

Folded gently inside of this beautiful dresser scarf
was a delicate embroidered baby slip....
and a length of gorgeous old lace ~
you SO know what I love dear friend.....don't you? :)

Thank you so very much sweet angel!!!!
I love it all Colette!

I won't talk about the you-know-whats I'm still working on.....
they're becoming a subject that I'm even tired of hearing about ~
kinda like the peat pots?

I hope you have an amazing Tuesday precious friends,
hugs and love,

Something about old watch faces fascinates me. Maybe they have such great stories to tell about the "times" they spent with the people who wore them. Thanks for the photos.

Thespa said...

I love the title of your post today, but you can't be the whisperer of all of those, as "I" am! LOL, but I guess I can share my titles with someone as talented and sweet as you are, Tee-Hee. Hope you have a great day!

vintagesusie & wings said...

i love the idea of being a 'whisperer'!!! i want to be a vintage baby shoe & baby cabinet card, old tin, rusty chippy, vintage trailer whisperer...can i please? maybe we could get name tags made up, start a 'whisperer club' only for those of us that have magical whispering super powers. i'd join that club in a heartbeat!! lol

Jane said...

Always good to see what you're up to, Dawn! You are such a treasure yourself with your wonderful ideas and sweet spirit of sharing and kindness.

julie miller said...

Hello dear Dawn, I know what you mean!! I'm in love with all the same sweet stuff as You!!! I just did a post about vintage clocks and what a hot commodity faces are right now! They just speak to me for some reason! Good luck to you in your quest to finish the "you-know-whats"!!!Hugs to you! Julie

Dawn said...

I think your little fairy girl can wave her magic wand and make it happen!
Love these pieces also and would love to collect them all.

Vee said...

Yes, lovely shapes, patterns, designs, linens... I can count on you to provide the most wonderful images. Now I'll just wonder what you're going to do with them all.

Hey Lady ~ You can be What Ever "Whisper'r" You Want to Be.... Love those Old Watch Faces, that is one thing I have Never come across in My thrifting, Maybe I just haven't dug deep enough.... FYI: I always have great luck when I have a rusted, stuck on lid/cap, I stand it upside down in a bit of Oil (like cooking oil) just cover the lid - leave it for a day or so, works every time....
Miss Ya, Miss GA ~ Hope to be back in the Fall.....

The Charm House said...

Wonderful!!!! And you can call yourself anything you want too! That's what so awesome about life! Dawn, have a great day filled with adventure!

Jo said...

Wonderful eye-candy in today's post! And I guess you can be a Whisperer of anything you want, if it speaks to you (which it clearly does!). x

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Beautiful bottle, Dawn! I just used two in a recent project myself. Love the clock faces, too. I guess there is some use for those old watches that don't work anymore.

Pink Roses and Teacups said...

Hi Dawn,

Oh what a sweet blog friend! Love that little baby slip. The old bottle is so cool! Can't wait to see what you do with it.


Miss Sandy said...

Your whispering skills are in very fine form! I think I need to be the idea whisperer,I am lacking in blog fodder as well as artful ideas lately. I am blaming on this sweltering heat. Have a pretty day!

Elizabeth said...

I love the old watch faces. They have such unique character, each and every one.

the bottle is great!

Can't wait to see what you do with everything.

Have a lovely day!

Hey you hob lob coupon, mat gel medium, supply knock off whisperer,
I want those clock faces! Especially the pocket watch at the top of the picture. You hoard the best stuff. I can just see you sitting out in your studio going thru your baby shoes, pocket watches, doll clothes & all of your other treasures just oohing & ahhing over it all. Someday I'm going to see it all in real life & drool over it with you. Lisa

Denise said...

Great old clock faces. I either never find them, or I'm just looking past them. Maybe you should be the yummy old stuff whisperer! You always show us yummy yummy stuff!

Marianne@Songbird said...

You can be the whisperer of just about anything!!
Adore the clock faces. Around here they only sell the complete clock and then they ask way too much money for it (no fun to play with it when you have payed a fortune), so I enjoy them vicariously through your clock-face-whispering skills.

Beth Leintz said...

Dawn- I think you're doing a pretty good job of whispering up some goodies- I have a weakness for clock and watch faces, and even faces from old scales, too. But they seem to be harder and harder to find. One of my luckiest finds ever was to stumble across an estate auction of a watch repairman.

ByLightOfMoon said...

I have many clock faces to but I need to remove them from the watch faces and I hope to keep all the pieces, Just a big job I need to sit down to do! Well, what am I waiting for?

Thanks for sharing all of your new goodies too!
Smiles, Cyndi

Barbara Jean said...

Blessings on your day

Hi Miz Dawn!
What a wonderful gift from Collette! A gal cannot have too many old watch goodies, the blue one is an unusual color. I know you will create some magic with them and the other treasures in your whispered cachet.
Stay cool,,stay in is my answer..I am tired of it too...but we have had some lovely thunderstorms of that!
Marcie said...

Dawn, it looks like you can hear the call of clock faces! I'd say you are a whisperer!!
