I found some interesting things at a large thrift store last weekend in St. George, Utah. When I shop at thrift stores, I look for items that can be turned into something updated or shabby. But sometimes I like things just the way they are. This wonderful mercury glass jar jumped out at me and I sure had to have it. It was $2.00.
Then I saw this really awesome milk glass vase. Loving this art-deco style.
I can never resist an apothecary jar of any size!
I will turn these into some shabby wonderfulness!
All of these will become chalk boards!
I could not believe this little gem for a couple of dollars
A frame that can be beautiful. . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . . .a vintage butter dish. I can never have two many of these.
This weekend is our annual Valley wide yard sales. The weather here will be in the upper 80's and so we are excited to attend the approx. 45 yard sales. Wish me luck on finding some amazing things!
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!
