I Couldn't Resist...

....but now what am I going to do with it?
I've mentioned before how we have this WONDERFUL consignment store in town and I always find something there to treasure.  You can find upcycling, furniture, and vintage items.  I, of course, am completely drawn to the vintage items and that's usually what I can't resist.

I sell things there every once in a while and I just have the owner keep my profits there on my account so I can buy things when I'm sorely tempted!
And people?  I was sorely tempted!!!  

Wouldn't you be too?

So....voila.....I bought this....
It's chipped and split and not in good condition at all....

but it grabbed my buzzing little heart!

And then I spotted this great vase.
I cannot tell who the manufacturer is....
Could be HAGEN? HAGER?  Do you know what it might be?  I would love to know.  
(Worker Bee even tried to make a rubbing of it, but we still couldn't read it.  He might be the real sweet bee, not me!)
I even found the sweetest little vintage hankie that seemed to just marry both the vase and vintage child's dresser!  

Serendipity!  I love it!

And now I have a dilemma.  Where on earth am I going to put it?

What do you think?

Buzz, buzz, buzz,


  1. Looks like Made In USA? Made in Japan? The last word is too blurry.

    1. could be right! I didn't see the first letter as an M, but now I do. Thanks!

  2. Sweet treats for you! I can't resist very often, but it's so worth it when you find treasures like these. A. Friend of mine put a little dresser on the bathroom vanity. It holds little soaps, ECT. It's cute there. Lucky you!

    1. That's a great idea, but it's pretty big and wouldn't fit on our bathroom vanity. I actually already have two little sets of drawers on either side of my vanity - perfect for keeping make-up and other small things handy in a very dysfunctional vanity.

  3. I'm not sure how I found your blog, but I love your little dresser! I found a small wardrobe this weekend that I didn't need either, but it was half-price and calling my name. I made a wall shelf for a small dresser of mine and display it on the wall of our guest bedroom. You can see it here:

    I love the hankie and vase you found, too!

  4. The dresser is darling! Would it fit on your dresser and be used for jewelry? The vase and the hankie had a special touch!!!

  5. Adorable! I can see why you loved it! What about on top of a nightstand, a sofa table or ed table? It has to go on something and surely you can find something it would be useful for storing:>) The vase might be Hager, I have an old vase with that name so I know it's an old company. Smart girl consigning and keeping the profits on account. Like your own little mad stash:>)

  6. Who would be able to walk away from that little cutie... So adorable.

  7. I believe it says Made In Japan! It's cool and looks great on top of the hankie and little dresser.

  8. I'm like you Janelle, I can resist anything except temptation! Your picks are precious. If you ever want to part with the hankie call me, I love it!

  9. Janelle, you MUST keep this child's dresser! It is adorable! I hope you are able to find just the right place for it!

  10. I looked at the little cabinet several times. I just had no room for it. Glad you got it!

  11. Hey, Janelle,
    It might be a piece from the Haeger Potteries, west of Chicago. They've been in business since 1871 and it has the look of their pieces from the 40s and 50s. Why don't you send them a photo of the vase and see if they can identify it?

  12. Score! What wonderful treasures! I'm drooling over that hankie!

  13. someone shared a pic of table from your blog, but cannot find it here. it was a rustic table on the porch.

  14. OMG. I am so jealous I could spit. I wanT that tiny dresser.

  15. Do you need my address?? I'm pretty sure that tiny dresser is shippable. :)
