Just a few baubles in the Treasure Box this week! Two items of which were plunder from the Greater Pittsburgh Renaissance Festival I told you about on Sunday.
Their marketplace is filled with everything from replicas of medieval weaponry to jewelry to soaps and candles. Not being in the market for a dagger at the moment, I selected a couple of necklaces, like this one bearing the image of one of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's red-haired maidens...
I also got this shimmering purple pendant made from lab-adjusted minerals...
And beyond the walls of the Renaissance Faire's "Shire," I picked up a curio wall cabinet I'd been looking for for a while to hold some tiny treasures based on Victorian artist John Tenniel's illustrations...
Complete with a dust-resistant glass door, this was more than I had even expected. It was a find from the Salvation Army Superstore in West Mifflin.
And that's it for our teeny Treasure Box this week. I should be back on schedule again this coming week. The Labor Day holiday just threw me a bit off with my posts. Can you believe it's September already?
How does it happen?
Oh, and because I thought it was funny, I'm going to try to start remembering to include my weekly BlueBoy count on my travels (you can read about the running Blue Boy joke here).
This week's Blue Boy Tally?: Two.
Have a great week!
