Victorian Lady Figurine (with the Rosebud Lips!) for Show and Tell Friday



The Victorian lady sits comfortably on a couch, a small bouquet of blue flowers rests  in her lap.

Her blond up swept hair frames a very pretty face.  Her delicate hands are carefully sculpted. She wears a long, pink  patterned dress. 

The tufted couch she sits on looks very Victorian, too.

No matter which direction she is viewed from, she's perfectly adorable.





This darling figurine came from a shelf crowded with various and sundry doodads in a Goodwill store in western Massachusetts. The price tag on it read $3.50. 

The minute I saw this sweet Victorian lady figurine,  a "Sold" sign flashed right before my very eyes.



The little lady and the tufted couch look perfect inside a dollhouse in our dining room.

She is now home sweet home!

P.S.Be sure to zip over to Cindy's blog, My Romantic Home, to see more offerings for Show and Tell Friday. See her blog button on  the sidebar to the right, click it, and off you'll go to My Romantic Home. It's just like taking a magic carpet ride!  Click and you are there.

She is very sweet and I'm glad you brought her home. I love the blue flowers and the touch of pink on her dress.

Hi Susan, yes we are in the States. Arrived to the Chicago area on Sunday. Now we are in Michigan. Weather this week has been absolutely, perfectly gorgeous!

Happy anniversary to you!

My uncle died last year, July 3rd, just before I left to come to the States -- and before we could get up to NC to see everyone. It was sudden and definitely hard on my aunt and cousins.

Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Best wishes, Tammy
