Weekend Fabulousness!

Is fabulousness a real word?  Doesn't matter because I call like I see it!  I had some fun checking out a local show of wonderful 'Junque', then hit a few garage sales on our way home.  Our church had a great sale and they were to that point that they were handing you a bag and everything you could get in it was a $1. Woa, that's a challenge that is hard to resist!  Here's what made it into my 2 bags.
SCORE!  Ice skates, I've been wanting a pair for a Christmas wreath for, well, foreveh (as my little one says)!  A vintage makeup case, only the plastic needs cleaned up and then I can have some fun making this one special.  Old flash cards, YES! 

Look at the pretty embroidered vintage apron.  Love the bluebirds! 

Some wire baskets will be fun to decorate or repurpose, more vintage linens...see the pretty hankies in the background?  Sweet.

More frames to have fun with, and of course I found some tins to spray up and decorate with my Silhouette.
As if the weekend couldn't get any better I also managed to score a Craig's List find. 

Here's the "before", along with the legs of lots of other projects waiting to be Niced up!  I think this will be a cute little piece and I'm itching to get started on it!
Hope you all had a great weekend, and are off to a productive week!  I'm headed out to put in some time on my big (FOREVEH) project, then on to some smaller finishes I hope to have ready to show soon!

Happy Monday!

  1. That was the best rummage sale I have ever been to. Fill your bag for a Dollar. My heart skipped a beat!


Go ahead and say something, it will make my day!
