It's so funny how when I go antiquing the things that I find are items that everyone else would pass right by ~ it has too many stains or it's falling apart or even they may not know how in the world they would put an item to good use. And I'm thankful for that!!
I was able to finish a little Christmas shopping Friday, which is so very good. Well, I eventually had to have an antique fix so I went to a local antique mall to see what I could find. Here is my sweet bounty!!
I think this is a little girl's night dress or something as it is made of a different fabric other than cotton. But just look at it, so sweet!
~ a child's book with wonderful illustrations
~ another little book that is falling apart but I love the look of the pages
~ some old paper clips in their boxes with neat graphics
~ a box full of pen nibs
~ a jar of creamy buttons and a doily (these were from The Plum Tree as I stopped by there too!)
~ the most beautiful tissue with handwriing from Target (I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it but I'll figure something out!)
~ two tiny bird ornaments that I want to use for something else besides being an ornament
I'm feeling so compelled to create!!! I'm working on other things around the house right now but soon enough I've got to get back into my art room and make something beautiful ~
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!
