Hi all, well it has been awhile since I have joined you all in the VTT over at http://coloradolady.blogspot.com/ I had sold off all my vintage items and had nothing to share, even tho I watched often what was going on with all the vintage. So now that I have collected a few vintage thingy's I thought I would stop by and share.
This is just part of my vintage hand crochet pot holders. The ones I have with me and the few that I got at some yard sales is what is in this batch. I have a whole lot of red ones at my dad's in Florida, I put them up in the kitchen. I really love those little dresses! I do have a few other vintage things that I can do a couple more weeks of VTT.
Here is a sneak peak at my fairy page, if it turns out ok, I will be joining that fairy page book swap that I told you about before. Been looking at yard sales for fairy's and have turned up not a thing.
Yesterday I did a little tea dye project, but used instant coffee and not tea. I want to do some grungy altered art things and don't have much with me. So did these for a start. Dipped then in the very strong coffee and hung them on the clothes line to dry.
It has been so hot here in PA, that not much is getting done on the house. It is hotter here than in Melbourne. Go figure. GIVE AWAY MINI ALBUM
Ok here is something for you to think about....I want to do a give away, a mini album to be exact. I want it to co-inside with my follower's, when I get 100 I will include all followers in the give away you don't even have to sign up. So all you lurkers out there join my follow list and join the give away.
Guess thats if for now thanks for looking and come back soon
Went to a few yard sales last week and found a few crafty items. This vintage tin full of vintage button's! Can you believe it over 5 lbs of vintage buttons. I now am officially a button collector. This tin full was only $5.00.
And also got this plastic container full of all kinds of beads. Good for my stick pins and charms. Only a buck. So I gobbled them right up, a few necklaces made with glass beads were in there.
And got this at a really neat yard sale it was more like a junk yard sale! Was huge! At another place in time I would have had a field day there. But this and four old bottles is all I got. A buck for these and 25 cents each for the bottles.
I got my sewing envy swap ready to send. I forgot to take pic, so will unload it and take pic. Good thing I didn't seal it up. I am thinking of joining an altered fairy book swap. Not sure because I have to fairy's and no printer. So have to see what I can come up with before I commit. Hopefully I will have more art and craft to tell you about soon, all for now thanks for looking and come back soon
And here is a pic of my new wheels. I have been wanting a van forever, but really did not want to wreck the truck to get it. But Love it. A GMC Savana. Just right for Grammynmaggie camping.!!!!
I have not crafted much since I got home to PA. Now that I am organized I got started on the house and helped with a few family matters, I can start again. Did my tag of the month and got it sent. Cant take a pic till she gets it, might be awhile she is in England.This tag is the one I received in the dress form swap, I don't know if I showed it or not but here it is. I also decided to start doing the Vintage Thingy Thursday again. So you can check that out tomorrow. Have not had any vintage to show but have a few new things I picked up hope to sell at the flea market. Hope to have more altered art and crafting to show you real soon. Thanks for looking and come back soon
