A Little Pile of Plucky

 On Saturday I had the pleasure of meeting up with Annette from My Pinecone Cottage and browse the isles at the Plucky Maidens Junk Fest.  We visited, we were inspired and we did a little shopping, too.
 Annette gifted me with a "poke sack" of buttons.  She knows me well.  I had a great time sorting through them and mining for treasures that night.  It is easy to see there were some fun ones in there!  Thank you Annette!
 I picked up a couple remnants of bark cloth I am collecting for a project, some lace, a few glass buttons and some trinkets for projects.  I was in search of just the right box for another project but one was not to be found.  Oh darn, now I have to keep hunting - lol!
 You can see from the first photo that I got quite a few rose postcards for the lace book project plus a few old lithographs.
I love the captions on this last card!
I hope you all found some play time this weekend!

Kathy, what fun! I'm so sorry I couldn't join you, it would have been a blast.....we'll have to do another show or just a day of shopping.
Love your finds, very sweet of Annette to gift you the goodies!

Those cards are great!!! What a fun day you had. I always get inspired at shows too!

You said you had done some mosaics so you understood how much time my dress form took....I knew anyone that had done mosaics would get it!
