Thrift store finds, again
I indulged in some thrift shopping this morning, and was very happy with what I came home with for just under $5:
|This pretty runner, which I intend to take apart for its tatted middle|
|I don't know why I felt I needed this veil -- but I did. It's new in the package.|
|Just in time for Oktoberfest -- these tiny paper party hats! They originally had feathers attached, which I might replace since these came without.|
|This extra large pad of hangman pages -- I thought it would be the perfect thing for hanging out with my son next week. We used to love to play that when he was little!|
|Even though these transfers are intended for punch needle, I think I can just as easily use them for regular embroidery.|
|Some handwritten letters, a prayer card, and an old postcard.|
|Did you notice this under my pile of ephemera? I had to have it! It desperately needs cleaning...|
|but it's PINK and I think it will be fun to craft with.|
|This party centerpiece is incomplete, but I still like it -- especially the purple night sky.|
I'm having a hard time getting in the Halloween mood -- maybe this will help.
Then, on a recent visit to Taos I was in a great little craft shop called Creative Taos where I bought these fun old cigar labels:
I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
