I have a similar vintage India printing block bought by Husband on our honeymoon in Calistoga.

I love also the Vintage St. Francis of Assisi and the Asian tea caddy.

These finds are great, especially the French bowling pins...But what we really love is the image of the Sutro Baths in the background!

When I was little I used to collect those little shell dolls from trips to the Shore with my parents...that really took me back! Have you seen Ann Carrington's giant versions? Worth googling....and as to all the rest...WOW! You have an amazing eye lady!
