I had so much fun yesterday on National Scrapbooking Day...even though I did not make a single thing, I did have a blast with my friend Joyce hunting for treasure at the flea market. Here are some of the goodies I found. First of all both Joyce & I walked away from this vendor with little treasures, here is mine. It is a bracelet made from silverware handles! I love it! She had all different fun items, from windchimes, wall hookes, necklaces and butter knife book marks - all were made from knifes, forks and spoons! We were able to swap out what charms we wanted and I choose this lovely little bird. Joyce choose a sweet little pair of scissors.
Here are some of my other treasures. Two more bottles for my collection - an old Barq's bottle, that was bottled just a few towns over from mine and a Bayer Aspirin bottle. Some vintage trims in peach, pink and silver. Some more buttons! A sweet milky white little Avon dish and some roses.
Also found this cute little shakers to use for button bouquet holders and of course more buttons. I went back a local thrift store in search of more of the blue button, that I had only bought one bag of to find not only more of those, but also two bags of the white buttons - for 99 cents each!
A day before my flea market finds, I went to the local Goodwill that I work at, in search of treasures on my day off. The quote on the sign they have out front is dead on "Treasures found here everyday". Here are the treasures I found. A new crate! That now makes three in my collection, so now I have Coke, Pepsi & 7 Up. I can't wait to but these up on the wall with all of my bottles. Then a flour canister, that will come to hold some crafting supplies, I'm sure of that.
Next, something I have been drooling over for a while, but haven't been able to find any in my price range, boxes from a sewing cabinet! They need some cleaning up, but I love them all the same. Then a sweet little child's glass bowl with silver plate and spoon.
Well I hope you enjoyed looking at my treasures. Today is a rainy, dreary day here, which means a perfect day to stay indoors, clean and craft! I'm off for now!
