My Happy Place
Life wasn't particularly kind to me this week but junk-land was and we all know that is my happy place. There is just something relaxing about the hunt. The Jesus picture is 1940s and the tooled leather bag is an old camera bag.
I adore the photo of the bohemian woman on the beach. The back side says, simply, Momma. I would love to know her story.
The red and white cookbook is a premium given to subscribers of Good Housekeeping magazine.
Remember the original troll dolls? I think the first thing I ever sewed were little felt clothes for my troll doll.
This knee huger went in the cart on a impulse. It was filthy so I gave him a shower in the kitchen sink. He didn't fall apart so I think a makeover is in order with a little glitter and some Shiny Brites.
Some pretty trims and a floral box. I wish I'd gotten a better photo of the jewelry box. I have never seen one with a checkered design like that.
I gasped when I lifted some fairly modern Christmas cards out of this box and found it filled with old Dennison Christmas stickers. Score!! Favorite find of the week.
