Finds and Buttons
Well now, this week certainly went by in a flash and here it is, Saturday again. There wasn't a lot of time for junking this week and that is a GOOD thing since, if I don't see it, I can't be tempted to drag it home. Today's mission is to organize the booth stash and chase dust bunnies out of the house!
This birdie planter was a gift to myself for having to work last weekend. It was found and Nina and Joe's and you know it didn't take me even one second to know I had to have it to add to my collection.
This beautiful book was published in 1939 and it is filled with art prints. I plan to list it on Etsy even though it weighs about a million pounds to ship. I am always reluctant to list the heavy stuff because of the shipping cost but I have to remind myself that not everyone is the cheapskate that I am.
Pretty pillow ticking and lace yardage that I can use in my inspiration kits. The book with missing covers is a history of Minnesota. There are some great pictures inside so it is a good "cutter".
A sweet angel hair angel tree topper and a few jello molds. I grabbed that rattan trivet because I saw a clever idea on Pinterest where someone hooked a bunch of them together and made a small rug. I see the trivets pretty often and always pass them by but thought I might like to try making one of those.
A delightful tea pot tin and a quilted yellow vinyl sewing box.
A little pile of lace ruffles and an embroidered table topper.
These are my favorite buttons from the latest mother lode button score.
Mother of pearl, glass and china.
I have not found the china stencil with this black design before.
After I took this picture I noticed I should have given this one a little scrub first. I used to find Girl Scout buttons all the time but they seem to be getting few and far between now but still more frequent than other scouting buttons.
Hope you all have a junky weekend!
