I hope everyone had a great Valentines Day, I really enjoyed looking at all the swap goodies, lots of great treasures!! We havent really celebrated Valentines Day yet, after the kids parties at school and the school dance, I was too pooped to go out, so maybe this weekend. My foot is feeling better, they gave me a "boot" to wear for a few weeks and orders to not do anything strenous. SO, I figured shopping is relaxing for me and I headed to the thrift store. Here are some of my goodies from Friday that I found:
Pretty Pink doilies for my bedroom dressers
I am going to use these for my Easter decorations, they look as if they are stained, but it must have been the lighting.
I love this earring and pin set, although I am not sure what I am going to do with it yet...wear it, display it, use it in a craft. They still have the little "made in japan" hang tags on them, and for $2, I couldnt leave them sitting there. I also bought the mouse just because it was cute, but I dont particulary care for mice (except the ones in Cinderella). Now that I am looking at these pictures, I see some sort of shadow on the left side of all my pictures...must have been bad lighting.
Also, got these crocheted doll clothes, I have a few old dolls that I am hoping will fit these clothes. Such a pretty spring color.
Well that is it for my thrift store goodies, total for the day was $9 andsome change. Now, I will go for the next few weeks and not find a darn thing, thats how it goes, you just have to hit it at the right moment. I have also made a few purchases, first are these super super cute pastel houses made by Julie, she has an etsy shop called http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5386317 Pieceful Bits. (Okay, I am not sure if I am doing this link thing right, hopefully it works) . I am going to set these little houses up with my Easter decorations. I had bought a few of her houses "after christmas" and was sad to put them away, so I am so happy to be able to enjoy these for awhile.
I have alot of red in my kitchen, I like the retro diner look and when I saw these little coasters I knew they would be perfect, but I am hanging them up, they are not going to risk getting messed up by being used. They are actually a little bigger than coasters, could be used as potholders. I just love the the little tea pot and tea cup. These come from Angela at Norththreads.com or you can visit her at Glitter and Grunge or her http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=17763 etsy shop (there goes that link thing again). She has one more set of these left...very cute and well made!!
And last I want to show you something my aunt made my for my birthday which was in August, but she just found it..LOL. I usually dont like my birthstone, but it looks pretty on this angel, but what I really like are the flowers. She does quilling and all those little flowers are quilled. Whenever we get a chance, she is going to sit down and show me how to do it. I remember doing it quite a few years ago and getting frustrated with it, so now that I am older and have more patience (haha) maybe it will be easier.
