I need another old, falling apart book like I need a hole in the head, but I just could not resist this one because of its art nouveau dandelion cover!
This pile of old drug store bags was an exciting find! I rarely come across new old stock anything in large quantities (where do people GET that stuff?) These bags are small and I'll be including them in my newest ephemera packs, as well as using them for wrapping and packaging. I'm wondering if I'm the only person you know that can get excited about a pile of old paper bags?
The Gilbert and Sullivan book reminded me of my mom...she was always singing those songs because she'd learned them in school:
Grow Your Blog: Rachel of Bluefinch Jewelry.
Are you a fan of Mich in LA's blog, where Michelle creates amazing jewelry out of ordinary, everyday and completely unexpected objects? She creates, blogs her creations, and invites people to guess what she has used for her raw materials! It is so much fun -- I've been following her blog for a long time now and love to see what she comes up with. She always gives away what she has created. This time, I was the winner of her necklace made from...can you guess?...a bird cage mirror! How much fun is this?! What a treat. Thank you Michelle!
Both these blogging friends make me want to shake it up a little and do something creative and fun, too. I'm putting on my thinking cap!
