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.
