Junk-A-Rama Part II
As promised, I couldn't resist going back to the digger sale on Sunday and I wasn't disappointed! It was the perfect relaxation from the big-girl job where I'm running full-on right now.
There were dozens and dozens of hankies. It made me think, who has this many hankies?? Then I remembered that I have dozens and dozens of hankies! I edited my selection but still came home with quite a pile and don't think I will be able to part with most of them. Someone will be wondering that same thing about me some day - lol!
The piece in the back with the yoyos has ribbon ties and is one one those vintage lingerie bags from the days when women stored their silk stockings in such bags to keep them from getting snagged. The lace and the storage box with compartments will enentually head to Etsy when I figure out what I want to do with them.
A pretty set of blue cross-stitched cocktail napkins. Wouldn't you love to have been invited to a tea where the table was set with handmade linens. These will be headed to my Etsy when I act on my good intentions!
A stunning, mirrored, vanity manicure set. I dusted it off and re-glued the mirrors and this one is already listed on Etsy. Yay me for following through!
A sweet little pair of miniature brass candlesticks sitting in a vintage Lucite soap dish.
These hankies WILL be listed on Etsy. They are silk and actually dated. How fun is that!!
In case you were wondering if I was exaggerating about the Mother Lode of gummed stickers, here is what my desk looked like when I was sorting them.
These are my keepers from the sticker score. They feel like metal but have the gumming on the back. Love them!
Kathy's day off.....!
