What I was Doing When I Was Supposed To Be Cleaning The House
Yes, I broke my rule again. And I didn't even clean the house on Friday night to earn the privilege. What's next... white shoes after labor day... going to bed without brushing my teeth... just the other day I was walking around in sandals with unpainted toenails. A regular Wild Thang.
This sale didn't pay off like the last time I broke the rules, but I came home with a nice little pile of loot from a sale that advertises itself as "priced right". J and N, love you guys!
Creamy ivory colored beads, rhinestone bling plus two sweet little Gurley deer and a box of those Angle Chime candles I was searching for last Christmas.
The leather bound travel journal is from 1944 and belonged to Carolyn Lazenby. It chronicles a train trip across the United States. She didn't really write very many entries but it is still fun to read. It will find it's way to my Etsy because I'm sure someone will have fun journaling it it or making an altered book.
I don't think the glasses are real. I think they are the "craft" kind, but they may work out for a project that is still percolating.
I know I said I wasn't buying anymore doilies but... but... Wild Thang. Rule Breaker.
Most of them will make their way to Etsy sooner or later.
But these, well these will stay with me and become part of this collection.
Now one last thing. I read a blog called Forgotten Bookmarks. He is a rare and vintage bookseller and he blogs about the things he finds inside the books. He also offers incredible weekly give-aways. If you have a twisted sense of humor, like mine, then this is a must read. Cracked me up!!
