Labor(s) Of The Day(s)
The picking this weekend came in the form of tiny bursts since I was acting as thrift store tour guide to The Husband's great bicycle quest. He did not find his next great thing so the couple's picking may be coming to a close but it has been a fun ride while it lasted! I did find a few neat things plus the assorted junk that always tags along in poke sacks.
Vintage rayon seam binding in a big rainbow of colors, two big lots of corsage pins and some buttons. That octagon box in the back is very vintage. The inside and bottom are covered in something similar to what is inside the covers on old books and the outside is either leather or something that looks like leather. The edges are laced with leather. I have never seen one quite like it.
Naturally, I couldn't pass up the blue jewelry box. The only other blue one I have found turned out to be broken so back to the GW it went. This one is in wonderful condition and I didn't even need to clean up the velvet on the inside. Three rosaries and those green things on the left are Girl Scout bookends. I plan to wear the earrings that are dangling from the jewelry box shelf. Isn't that little girl watching the squirl a cutie!
A simply SWEET handmade child's slip. It is too far gone to be worn but looks so pretty for display. I was disappointed when I got that ivory colored plastic box home and realized one of the legs was broken. It was very inexpensive so maybe I can still figure out a use for it. I wonder if I could just cut off the legs?? Hmmm...
