What I got at the Brass Armadillo
At the conclusion of her visit, Tami and I stopped on the way to the airport to shop at The Brass Armadillo, and we found some very fun stuff there!
We had about 3 hours to shop and giggle...
we both wanted this dress, in one of my favorite booths full of vintage clothes...
and pretty things like this purse with its huge Lucite clasp on top!
But it's the things I did get that I wanted to show you:
first, this handmade display of old buttons, clasps, and sewing notions.
It had pieces falling off of it as soon as I picked it up...
so I won't feel bad if I take it apart and reuse some of the fun little bits in my art!
Sweet ephemera pieces
spun cotton flower picks
including this falling-apart button brooch that I just had to rescue!
But this is the find I really wanted to show you: the scrapbook of a gal who became a director of plays
It was FULL of fun stuff in this girl's life.
Really fun photos...
and a whole page of dance cards, as well as...
even a prop from one of the plays she was in!
memorabilia from her sorority rushing
including her dried bouquet from the night she was pledged!
There was even a bunch of loose stuff in the back of the scrapbook.
Here's Hazel -- the scrap booker -- herself.
All in all: it was a really fun last stop on the way to the airport. (Here's Tami packing her buys into her luggage!)
