Found: Good Stuff!

I found a few treasures today!! I ran out of one of my favorite things, Liquitex Matte Gel Medium (I always use a coupon for this!) and had to run to Michael's to get more. I needed a little antiquing fix too so I stopped by the antique mall nearby and found a few little things! Well, not the flowers, they're from Michael's and I love them! They have a bit of a vintage look to them and I thought they'd work well in some projects I'm in the middle of.

See the neat sugar sack?? I just love it! Only five dollars too....two cabinet cards of some precious babies that I'll be sure to scan and share with you :) The little tins need to become pin cushions, don't you think? And a 70's poetry book that's not too attractive but I love the Emily Dickinson poems inside. I'll be sure to share some of my favs with you too!!

I'm so picky about any scrapbooking paper that I buy ~ you know I love old, worn and vintage so it has to have that "feel" to it....this pad of paper on clearance at Michael's was just what I needed to go with the flowers ~

I just have to share a little news with you!!! I've been asked to create a few things for The Vintage Workshop and Indygo Junction! How cool is THAT?? I love vintage images, so you know I'm in heaven using theirs in my artwork....and here are a few patterns they sent that I want to try first ~ I've got to start using up some of this fabric stash!!!

Well, I've done it. Unbelievably, I've posted 900 posts! A giveaway is coming soon, really, really stay tuned!!!

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday sweet friends ~
xxoo, Dawn

Love your treasurs. I am going to Antique stores Friday. I can't wait to see what I find. My wallet is afraid!!!!!!!! I have been a little obsessed with it all lately. I too love Indigo Junction stuff. I have a number of their patterns. Congratulations on being asked to design for them. Saw the Fairies in a Jar in the magazine. So glad I had already bought your tutorial. Eberyone should purchase the full instructions from you. They are so cute. Hugs to you & Clara.
