Thank you so much for your kind words of support for my crafting block...I am sure that this snowy weekend will see a lot of scissors, glue and paper. Today I hit two sales that seemed to be duds but at least I made it past the car line at school. We are expecting more snow on Sunday.. I am loaded up with projects so there is no need to get out for a few days...The small fort the kids started on out front is beginning to resemble a hotel!
I lucked out with these great Atlas and Ball jars for a $1 each. I am on the hunt for old lids. They all have the old bubble glass and are different shapes and colors. More great storage vessels.
Books I don't have...this 1924 holiday book is fantastic. The inside cover previews all the holidays it includes. Forefather's Day, Bird Day (aka Arbor Day) Armistice Day, American Indian Day and Hallowe'en. I haven't read it yet, but at a glance it references most of the holidays to the presidents and or the Christian faith.
The pictures are Victorian and all in the colors of black, green, and orange. I can't wait to read it all. It is not that long and was obviously written for an elementary audience.
A bundle of tea towels with the original tags...oh my luck. Still starched and ready to hang.
One of my favorites. Children's handkerchief's. This is a lot of 4 in different colors. All the same print and they appear to be unused. These look pillow perfect.
Bargain basement favorites are always hard to pass. Gun metal grey stapler. These things always work better than the new plastic ones. For fifty cents I'll take it. A box full of old sewing machine feet. I can never find feet for my early 1900's machine. This is worth a try again at fifty cents. If they don't work, they will find their way to the local charity shop.
Thank you all again for being so supportive and cheery...It is such a pleasure to be a part of such a talented and friendly community.
I have been working on several sewing projects and a few stitching that I should finish for Monday's Sewing Christmas.
