Greetings and Holykisses,
Some of you have asked what we found at thee junque stores on our recent road trip.
Here's a quick post of some of our finds.
Two, dyed carved pearl buttons, and a handful of old cabinet keys and skeleton keys.
Hatpins, and olde corsage pins, and crocheted lace. The tiny handheld mirror was a real find, but the mirror part is messed up. Think I'll alter it, with a new image for fun. The half doll was my favorite thing... she has pink roses in her hair. Also, I sifted through so many baskets of cabinet cards, and only brought home; three. One, I'll blog about another day, as I found out it's "special!" Stay tuned!
The beads were from the coolest bead store. I have big plans for the tiny turquoise ones, and fell in love with the felted wool beads. I've wanted to learn how to make them... ; if any of you, have mastered this, please write me!
These beads are special as well. Made by women in Africa, out of paper. I'll treasure them.
Rusty pool baskets are a new favorite of mine. Don't they bring back memories?
This vintage shopping cart was also a squeal,... I mean steal! I've wanted one for a long time, and just don't see them around here. Now it needs a shabby liner made from vintage barkcloth with fluffy pink roses. I'm wondering if I can talk Fancy Nancy into making one? ;)
Did you notice thee aqua wheels? In good shape too! I can just envision it strolling thee isles at flea markets.
An olde magazine stand also found it's way back to Arkansas! My favorite mags and books are always out of sight; but this way.... inspiration is within easy reach.
And more vintage jars for Lydia jars. Two I'll keep to add to my growing collection. They are CROSS mason jars. I've seen them, but never bought one. Usually they are pricey, but these were cheapcheap! Now it's time to start gathering more purple! I wonder who they'll go to?
Have a hair appointment and I'm in the mood for a change! Just printed out a couple pictures of SHORT new dos I like. Now... do I take the plunge, or stay safe?
Uggg, I'm so vain.
God bless the USA this 9-11, and the families of those who lost loved ones.
I'll never forget.
