Late, last week I stopped at a friend's estate sale...it was very small. Most of the house was closed off and not much was in the house. I milled around a bit and said hello to a few familiar faces. Not much to see or pick from but I felt like I should buy something as I knew the lady holding the sale. A box of
plastic flowers picked up for $2.00. I left them in the back of my car for three days.
Then I decided to go through them...good grief. I can't believe I waited to go through the bag. Hello! Fantastic plastic fifties blue...If you can't think of anything to do with these go check out Beth's Bagz creations at her site. Do a little clicking on her flickr under wreaths and corsages. You too will be picking up vintage goodies like this. (Or you can spare yourself and buy one from her like I did.)
Yes, they do smell like plastic and dust but it doesn't diminish their crafting goodness.
Look at all this great stuff in the bottom in the bag...all that Christmas fun and I waited to dig through it?
In another "Hello!" moment, did you know that the Dolly Toy Co. that made those cute little nursery wall plaques made sweet little lamps too?
I scored this one from ebay for a steal. That water stain is rain...don't you know? That's what I am going with. I need to rewire it before I turn it on, but when it is lit the clouds are translucent.
At home below her buddies. Nestled in the flowers that she is watering, a night light! So cute I couldn't help myself.
We are enjoying our first nice Spring thunderstorm...I hope it is a sign of warmer weather and fresh flowers.
Have a wonderful week.
