You just can't beat some good treasure hunting to turn a hum-drum day into an awesome one.
Look what I picked up yesterday, and all for under $10 at my local second hand store. A fantastic 'crewel, embroidery large -framed -art- thingy'. A complete Monopoly game. I use the pieces in projects and the cards , I turn into magnets.
I use to sell them in my Etsy shop, but now I use them as giveaways at shows and as order 'thank you's. Very nostalgic...and functional.
Also- this cool antique piece..an old music recorder. I want to make it into a bud vase.
and this grand, little dinosaur.
The shark search got me thinking about using these old toys in other pieces. Which, by the way, was FOUND ! Picked up for .90 at a local thrift store after a tip from a crafty pal. It was just what a was looking for to complete my underwater scene. Still a few more weeks away, but he is a key component.
Have a great weekend all. Enjoy & create something.
