What is a trip to the thrift store if you don't return with a project?
I have long wanted to "alter" a globe (I even started a Pinterest board for globes!) I have been on the hunt for one to try and the other day I found it! What I like best about it is the great old metal stand it's on. But what sold me on it was that it's damaged (split) at the equator so I won't feel at all guilty about decoupaging over it!
Some other recent finds: these lovely Vera napkins...
and bark cloth! Never pass up bark cloth. Especially when it's cheap.
Each of these panels was just $1.50 and will wash up beautifully.
I'm on the lookout for interesting ways to display paper, tags, linens, etc. and this multi-hanger with its large clips struck me as just the thing.
A fun cover on a book of manuscript paper...
for journaling! I don't see this often out there, do you?
I bought a pile of ca. 1960, NIP wedding shower napkins and can't wait to offer them in my shop for maids of honor who are planning parties with a retro theme!
A fun little jewelry roll from an estate sale had these novelty pins collected on it -- I especially love the two deer and the tiny key! They will find their way into my fabric book pages for sure.

Well, that's enough fun for this morning; now, it's back to the grind. We're doing taxes tomorrow night so I have to finish up the calculations (yawn!) I'd rather be thrift shopping.
