I am in the habit now of getting up early Saturday morning and looking in the paper for some yard sales. I scored way up there this past Saturday in the vintage/antique department. Yes, rhinestone parts of old vintage jewelry are all in pieces, but non-the-less, can still be used for crafting.
This vintage compote will get changed up a bit. I will probably use the crystals for other things. I was extremely excited when I found this in perfect condition!
All five of these old frames, some are quite old, and the sweet chair down below, which I need to take to my wood man for fixing. After that I will paint it in some really fun way.
The grand total for all of these items together is $17.00 which I think is a steal for sure! What do you think?
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
