Last Wednesday, Mitzi and I hit the Goodwill bins. Didn't find much. At least not anything blogworthy. After that we went to another Goodwill. Found nothing there. We then headed over to Hippo Hardware for some electrical stuff and I spotted a cool vintage shopping cart which was holding a bunch of random stuff. I asked if it was for sale and the guy basically told me to name my price. I got a great deal on this sweet cart. Really I have no business buying any more as I have a ton of them (if you're new to my blog let me tell you that one of the many things I sell is vintage shopping carts with custom made fabric liners) and I have vowed that I wasn't going to buy any more. So much for that idea.
After going to HH we headed over to Stars Antique Mall where we met up with Karen, Paula and Laurie (Magpie Ethel). If you are not familiar with Laurie, go right now to her blog and say hi. She is the ultimate crafting queen in my book. After we all grabbed a bite to eat, she graciously invited us to have a tour of her home and studio.
Laurie's home is jam packed full of incredible vintage finds and lovely hand crafted creations that are beautifully and artfully arranged. Her vintage home has so many wonderful nooks and crannies that are just perfect to house her many collections. I'm going to just shut up now and let my pictures do the talking. Hope you have your coffee as this is a long one.
Incredible, right? I just love everything about Laurie's home. I could move right in.
The projects I referred to at the beginning of this post are just some things I'm working on for Farm Chicks. It's still two months away, but feels like it is getting closer by the minute. By the time it gets here I'm sure you will be bored with me talking about it so much so I will try to limit my posts that have to do with FC. It will be hard as I am getting very excited about going and I have lots of great stuff that I will be taking with me.
Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday and a very Happy Easter with your friends and family!
