Some of my Aqua Pieces

 I just purchased these 2 old aqua bottles yesterday at the antique shop.
 These two bowls are very heavy and are about 6 1/2" tall. I purchased them at my favorite antique shop a few years ago.
 The tallest piece measures 9 1/2"
And the bottle on the left is a vintage Avon bottle.
I bought the little Hobnail vase for 50 cents.
 This glass tray is from around 1900.
My mother made the shoe some years ago, and the figurine in this picture and the one in the other picture I also have in pink. I bought them at an estate sale last year.
 I just love this creamer and sugar bowl from the 30's or 40's
Another pretty piece I bought a few years back from my favorite antique shop.
 Cute little salt and pepper shaker.
And my little couple.


 Christmas book written in 1898.
Its a nice size about 11" tall and lots of pages.
This christmas book is tattered but has some nice pictures and stories, and of course has lots of aqua color on it.
I found some of these tickets inside.
Would anyone know anything about them?

Such a soothing color. It makes me think of homes of people I loved as a child!
I was wondering if you could do a custom ornament of my recently deceased, beloved kitty?

Glad to see you again!

Hi Mary,
You have the prettiest aqua treasures I have seen. I love the bowls and the creamer and sugar so pretty.
And for the Christmas book to have the santa in aqua instead of red is very interesting for that time.
Thank you for sharing such lovely aqua's.

So nice to see you today and thank you for stopping by and your kind words. Blessings to you always.

XOXO Celestina Marie

Aqua is a soothing and beautiful color for any home. I love it too.
As for the tickets and the Christmas book, what a find my friend. You have so many wonderful items showcased in your post.
I don't know what the tickets would have been used for, but my guess would be give a way? Either way, you scored. Love it all,
