I just love finding great stuff!!!


I was able to make a little trip to our local thrift store and
found some wonderful goodies!!!!

Just look at the jewelry pieces I can use on candy cups and artwork...





Plus I found a pack of brand new sticker paper that I can use
on the back of muslin to run through the printer to print images onto fabric!




I don't have a photo to share with you
but have an order of EIGHTEEN angel wing ornaments!

So, I've been cutting out batting and more batting and more.
I'll be sure to share a pic of the finished ornaments with you ~

Wishing you a most wonderful Friday my dear friends,
hugs and love,
Dawn

De "gamle" smykker er så skønne og anvendelige i vores "kreative verden" knus morkaren.

Dont't you just love finding vintage jewelry... I love using rhinestones for bling ... angel wings are sweet.. you are going to be gluing for while... I am creating with what I have here and what I am creating with what I have here....It's working out well .. Although it would be fun to go shopping it isn't necessary as I have so many unused things stashed now... we should remember we did at one time pay for those even though it may have been a good buy... Just have to make those creative juices flow... I am feeling so much stronger and trying to enjoy the season as it comes since I was given a gift to be here.... Thanks for sharing as you always have and enjoy the coming season for being thankful with a new little member in your family...

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

THE GIFT FROM ONES HEART IS THE MOST SPECIAL GIFT OF ALL...AND THAT SOMEONE KNOWS YOU WELL ENOUGH TO GIVE YOU THINGS THAT SHE KNOWS YOU WILL TREASURE. HAVE FUN DEAR DAWN.
I THINK WE ARE ALL ON EDGE ABOUT EVENTS THAT ARE AT HAND. I WANT TO FIX WHAT IS BROKEN WITHIN THIS COUNTRY WE LOVE. AND SO EACH DAY I PRAY FOR A PEACEFUL HEART BECAUSE I AM NOT IN CONTROL. I WILL VOTE AND HOPE THAT I MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE. AND BE GREATFUL THAT I CAN SHARE THESE WORDS WITH MY FRIEND, HUGS MARY
