Fabulous yard sale find!
Happy Tuesday to all of you.
Saturday I went on the yard sale trail and found this fabulous little goodie.
Can you believe it is 110 years old. Look at the detail of the clasp. I am so intrigued with old pics.
I always wonder about their lives. Pretty cool stuff! I stopped at another sale where this woman had all
these boxes of beads,lace and interesting wood pieces and every thing I asked about she said, "oh that's not for sale" UGH!!!! Why would anyone have all these boxes out, full of goodies, and not want to sell it?
It was very frustrating!
I have to show you my friend Betty's beautiful salesmans case. Sorry no blog. She is the most amazing artistic woman and she has a heart of gold. I just love her. Let me take you on a little tour of her place.
If you look close at the last picture you will see 2 cows. They are named Hamburger and T Bone. LOL
Sorry about the crazy way this blog posts. I wanted the text between the pics. Still have a lot to learn.
Have a great day or evening depending on where you are.
Thanks for visiting me. My name is Diana. I love creating things with a vintage flare. You can usually find me out in my studio creating or changing the furniture around. (trying to work on that) I love to try different art mediums so I never get bored.
I love yard sales,flea markets and going to good thrift stores. Grab a cup of coffee and visit for awhile. I love getting to know new friends. You can email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org Please leave me a comment and let me know you were here.
This is a pic of the collage at the memorial service. There was a table set up with pics and things that my aunt had made.
True Love Cont.
This is a collage I did for my Aunt Doris. She and my uncle Clyde had been married for 55 years. When I was a child they took me in when my mother was ill. They showed me love and what family is supposed to be. My heart is so broken right now but I know she is with the Lord so that comforts me.
This is a jar of vintage white buttons that I altered.
