This is the jar that was created for me by Dana in GA. All my favorite things just bursting out of the jar! She packed the jar with tea, Lindt chocolate (oh boy) lovely pieces of crochet, buttons, and lots of cute bits for scrapping. How could I note share this with you. (Except the chocolate-sorry) I forgot to take a picture of the jar I sent her, it was very vintage looking and I really had fun finding all her favorite things! I made a label for the out-side of it by scanning a 1960's sewing pattern and trimmed the jar with ric-rack (love that stuff)

This little child's rocking chair has been patiently waiting for me since I picked it up for $5 at the flea market. Finally finished the new cushion and back for it. After the winter (when we are not usinf the fireplace) I will sit it next to the fireplace.
Let's see, oh, a quick visit to the rummage sale this morning. Just a few gift basket trims and also discovered a sweet little doll. I think she does have a funny expression on her face but I love the colors she is wearing and orange pom-poms on her toes!
I hope you have enjoyed looking at the pictures and I promise to be back soon!

Last week I picked up these wooden doll parts. I have been keeping my eyes open for wooden spools, so these caught my eye. The bag of heads are actually labeled as package tie-ons. The bags of body parts I am planning on turning into cute little pink ladies. I am looking forward to using up all those little pieces of fabric and trim that you just cannot throw away! Yes, I will post pix when the girls are done!
Oh, I just re-did a really neat cigar box. I am please with this one, it is not my usual sytle, I tend to go a bit over-board with my re-do's but I tried to keep this one simple. This cigar box is quite big and the wood is rough so I knew that I did not want to paint it. So, all I did was clean off the old cigar label and place a new 'label' in it's place and then just add two pieces of paper from my stash. Now it is a very handy spice box for the kitchen! Not bad!

So, went thrifting today and found a few fun bits. I picked up these vintage doily patterns for pennies! I think I paid the same price they were way back when! I cannot imagine that I will try them all but perhaps one or two and these patterns never go out of style.
I also found this interesting little box. I assume it is for jewelry and perhaps is made of Bakelite? I just thought it was a bit unusual.
This little tin is marked from England and for a quarter, well, how could I pass it up. (I know, another dust collector.)
Let's see, what else...well, I did find this cute little table for $5 at a yard sale a couple of weekends ago. I am debating what to do with it. My instinct is always to decorate or embelish but I don't want to over-do this one.

I assumed the the sound was linked to my playlist. Boy, I spent hours trying to diagnose the sound. E-mailed every techi I know and probably some I don't! Anyhoo....finally deleted the playlist but next time i was on my blog, there it was again! Wellll.....ummmm. when you 'adopt' one of those cute little animals to add as a widget, well, they have to eat right! yes, and they crunch very loudly!!! So.......if you decide to 'adopt' a widget pet, it might make some noises that you least expect. Needless to say, Lambkins is toast (or should I say Lamb Chops)
