First, the great jars and small bottle, I just love them but am very particular as to what I'll pay.... how cool is it that the Peter Pan jar has measurements on the side ~ I'm sure it was reused back in the day ~
A dealer is apparently moving out and had all of his books priced to sell ~ .50 cents for hard backs and .25 cents for paper backs. I found several that I love and some will become altered books as I'm craving to try my hand at that! A sweet nature book that has a few neat images that I want to share with you and of course music books ~ but for a quarter each, how could I pass them up?!
Some crazy short hand or something book but I loved the look of it ~
This is the most wonderful music book and I'm sure if you're a music lover you know why these are printed so small but I thought they would make great labels and could be used in other ways in artwork ~
I took one and trimmed it with my deckled edged scissors. I love those things. They are uneven and give the edge a great look ~
I aged the edge just a little with a brown ink pad and cloth
Used a little matte gel medium on the back and centered it on the front of the bottle, overlayed a stamped, aged "Paris" label I made from paper aged with ink, then tied with old lace and seam binding and finished with a sewn on bauble ~ I filled the little jar with vanilla buttons and topped it with a wine cork cut in half!!
You can find it in my Lollishops store :)
More goodies from my treasure hunt but these are from Michael's. The perfect pink candles for the shower (on sale 2/$3)....I may go back and get a few more! Look at the precious ribbon I found in the dollar bin....rocking horses and baby carriages!
Oh, and the cards? They were a dollar but I'm going to make tags, pins, cupcake picks or something from them....just spray a little adhesive on one side, place face down on baby patterned scrapbooking paper and trim with a craft knife! Repeat for the other side ~ Then I may put a sweet baby image in the center.
I think the crepe paper roses thing was priced wrong, it was only 1.49 I think....maybe I can learn how to make them for that price! Like I need something else to do :)
I love this ribbon I found too at Michael's ~
Some precious images for you, I'm sure that you've seen them before. I just love them both ~

Wishing you a wonderful Monday sweet friends!
