your Daily Double or GET GET GET GETGETGET

I was too busy yesterday -- so busy I forget exactly what I was busy with -- to post a Daily Double, so today you're getting a double double.  Which is nice.

Cinderella, the prince, her wicked stepsisters, and the prince's banner holder guy.
 You can get Cinders and her peeps on greeting cards -- decals/skins -- tshirts -- neckties -- notebooks -- memo pads -- plaques -- trinket boxes -- wall clocks -- mouse pads -- tote bags -- mugs -- buttons -- keychains, and one or two more must-have items.  
Go to: www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and enter 'Cinderella'

Two dogs from 1914.
 Interestingly, back then little children's books (not real 'books'  more like folded pages of paper in small book size) were including in the Sunday newspaper.  The above came from one of those. AND those dogs appeared in more than one book.  I have to dig up the book they came from, and then I'll post their names.  You can get these fellas on greeting cards -- notebooks -- note pads -- mugs -- mouse pads -- tote bags -- t-shirts -- trinket boxes -- dinner plates (!) -- coasters -- wrapping paper aka gift wrap -- aprons and MORE MORE MORE!  Go to: www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and enter 'two dogs'

Curly the Mustache Man is in the house!
He's available on notebooks -- wrapping paper aka giftwrap aka gift wrap -- boxes of various sorts -- plates -- wall clocks -- playing cards -- mugs -- mouse pads -- tote bags -- skins/decals -- t-shirts -- neckties -- greeting cards and MORE.  Go to: www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and enter mustache'

Dad's building a fire in order to brew some joe
Maybe they forgot to bring food, and all they have is coffee.  I don't know.  Just seems to me that if you're out camping, coffee wouldn't be a priority, but then again, my camping experience is limited and my family camping experience is zilch.  The above can be had on postcards and greeting cards -- neckties -- t-shirts -- letterhead -- notebooks -- plaques -- jigsaw puzzles -- ceramic tiles -- mouse pads -- tote bags -- wall clocks -- mugs -- skins/decals, MORE.  Go to: www.zazzle.com/the_olden_eye?rf=238225004668148127 and enter 'campsite'

the Tuesday Song of the Week

This week's song -- which is not a song exactly, it's an instrumental -- comes with a very fun/stupid memory from my childhood.*

'Zorba the Greek' - Herb Albert and the Tijuana Brass

*I was maybe age 5 or 6 and at the home of one of my little friends up the street, and we were sitting on the lawn.  Somebody had this song coming out of their radio, and when the piece slowed down, we began pulling handfuls of grass out of the lawn at the same speed.  When it sped up, be began pulling up the grass faster, and when it went back to its original tempo, we tore the grass up as fast as we could.

Good times.

Her Royal Highness, Princess Pitcher.
She's a somewhat larger size cream pitcher or somewhat smaller size regular pitcher.  And SHE IS IN MINT CONDITION.  Know that what looks like damage is glare and only glare.

If you want a little useful royalty in your home, you can get it here: www.etsy.com/shop/peaceableantiques.

There be dragons

on my vintage Japanese dragonware.

Divine, no?
 Note that the above is one of your last opportunities to see something photographed on my City of Bothersome Love porch, on accounta me and the hubbage be moving in a couple months.  So enjoy it while you can.  

Equally divine.

and even more so.

All of the above are resting comfortably in my Etsy shop, waiting for you.  I've divided up all three -- the pot, the creamer and sugar bowl set, the cups and saucers -- into three listings.  There may be some teapot/coffee pot collectors that don't want the other pieces, or people with partial sets of dragonware cups and saucers that already have the other pieces, yada yada.  Makes it easier for everyone.  

Now go get 'em:  www.etsy.com/shop/PeaceableAntiques

Can you ear me?

Out of all the categories of jewelry -- necklaces, brooches, bracelets, earrings -- my least favorite are earrings. Nevertheless, I recently found three pairs of awesome AWESOME vintage earrings, now waiting for you in my Etsy shop: www.etsy.com/shop/bijoux4youx 

First up, these utter beauties...

Here's another view.

These are super super neat and BIG.
 Like two full inches big.

Both of the above on clip on/clip back earrings.  These sweet damascene earrings are, quite obviously, for pierced ears.
Note that they look way sweeter in person.

Your Daily Double or The Clock Is Ticking

Ticking... ticking... ticking... With every second that ticks by you're ever closer to when you're going to have to by Christmas presents, Hanukkah presents, Festivus presents.
