I do however have some random pictures to share with you. Starting with this one. This is where the basket I got last week at Monticello ended up. In case you don't remember, it's the tallest one on the left.
Here is a little clock I found at the Salvation Army "boutique" store last week. I bought it for resale, but I don't know, it's pretty cute. I do have a small collection of vintage clocks, I just may have to keep this one for little while. The funny thing about this clock is that it's also a music box. It plays "Edelweiss" and for some reason it started playing while I was holding it and walking around the store. I couldn't figure out how to turn it off so people kept giving me strange looks.
I got a couple packages in the mail last week including a package of vintage bling I bought on ebay. It felt like Christmas going through the bag imagining what I would do with these pieces of jewelry past.
The bag also contained three vintage "jewels" that had been soldered onto metal sticks. Not sure what I'll do with these, but I think they would be cute in little potted plants for an extra sparkle surprise.
Also in the mail were some vintage hats that I wasted no time taking apart for the flowers. That's why I got them in the first place. I guess I should have taken a picture of the hats in their before state. Here are some of them after. I finally found a use for the big jar with the painted roses on it. I have had this jar for a few months now and have been wavering do I sell it? or do I keep it? I guess for now it's a keeper.
I mentioned in my post on Friday that I was working at the Middle School. When I walked in I noticed these neat wood cigar boxes just sitting on top of a shelf so I asked if they were being used for anything, and if not, could I pretty please have them? Of course they couldn't refuse me and the boxes came home with me. I was so excited to have them, only now, not sure what I will do with them. They are so cute as is, but... maybe some vintage wallpaper, rickrack, lace, who knows?
I've been thinking about my 100th post giveaway and I'm still undecided about what the prize will be. Should I do a pink roses themed gift? Easter/Spring theme? Random craft supplies? I do know that I want it to be something that will appeal to the masses. Or a least my blog readers. ha ha Stay tuned to find out. 100th post coming soon!
