Score!

Yesterday, Jen dragged me to the antique shop down the street. We found all kinds of cool stuff. Here is my loot.We found old wooden cigar boxes. Only 5 bucks each. We will use those for our display at our upcoming show. I found a whole bag of these spoons for 10 bucks! I have all kinds of ideas on how to use these. My favorite ones are the tiny salt spoons. I have a special idea for them but you will have to stay tuned to see the results.
I found this little top to a salt shaker. Isn't it cute? And the old wooden ruler...that is for my class with Lisa Kaus called gridlocked that I am taking in August at the Zne Convenzione. I will also be a vendor there, so that will be one busy trip! So I must be off to go create. Only 3 weeks until our Show & Tell Crafters Market. It is going to be fun and a learning experience.

Where have I been? I just had a bajillion posts to read from you. You found some cool stuff & I can't wait to see what you do with them. I'm intrigued about the spoons.
The earrings you bought are so unique. I love her sea urchin ring. Drool...
And the necklace you made for yourself. Stunning as usual! Good luck in completing your pieces & getting ready for all those shows :)
Glad you got a laugh about my renting story. I knew some current & former military would get a kick out of my post & "get it"
Happy 4th!
