Oh, man! I struck gold at the thrift shops! Here are some things I got at two different store. Grand total- around $14.00. Um, I have to admit. I did keep a few of the items. They flipped into my house...
I got an Eldreth ovoid salt-glazed small jug for, get this, $1! Seriously! I saw it at Goodwill and snatched it before anyone could see what a bargain it was. That seems very terrible when I write it out. I feel like Gollum from Lord of the Rings- "My Precious!" (That guy creeps me out!). You don't see it here because I gave it to my mom. Awwwwww... She collects salt-glazed pottery too!
These items will hopefully be making their debut on eBay tonight. After I clean up my crafting mess, do dishes, decorate for Fall, and, well, take a nap. So, it's a toss-up! I told you all I needed a nap. Coffee Cake yesterday; nap today! It's all good!
I hope this finds you all well. I have a few more "Picture Pages" to share (...time to get your crayons and your pencils- anyone remember that show? Come on. Admit it!). See, this is what happens when I am out of comission for a few days and also drank a large iced latte.
Blessings to you all!
Coffee Talk for Today- To pincushion the treenware cup or not to pincushion, that is the question!
|Pewter Porringer- awesome patina!|
|I got two of these for $1! Went to COCALICO CREEK and got some battery tea lights. I went to the big one in Lancaster. They are getting ready for their grand opening, girls!|
|2 for that price!|
|$.50! I may hold on to it and put it on a craft, maybe as a reflector for a wooden candle?|
|Old treenware cup- I am thinking of making it into a pincushion. Or, do ya'll think I should sell it as is?|
|Pineapple is hand carved- $2. I am going to group it with some other pineapple items. Santa- well, he's just cute!|
|This was plain plywood when I bought it for $1. I "oldified" it with Gesso, brown paint, cinnamon, Modgepodge. I sent a picture to my dad. His answer was, "Yuck!" Yeah. He's not into prims.|
|Clothes pin dolls in their grungy spa. They look silly! They are getting a tan in the oven now... I will post their finished make-over later!|
