I figured it is about time I posted again. Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. I am trying to make a garden cement leaf with a rhubarb leaf before they dry up. This one is in my friends lawn. Mine won't be that big, darn it. When I get one made I will have to post a picture. I think I am going to have to try again. Don't think I covered the leaf with enough cement.
It has been raining here, and if it is not raining then it is so humid that I can't work outside. I haven't made the apple roses in awhile. Something I can do inside and stay cool. I sure don't want to clean!!
Every year a church in town has a huge garage sale for 2½ days, starting Thurs afternoon. I went then, it is so packed. It is huge. I got 8 wool sweaters, a vintage Fire King casserole dish and a few small items for just under $6.00. Today I went to a sale, I got two big boxes of Christmas garland, the good stuff with wire not the floppy stuff for $5.00. She gave me two wooden crates and two vintage apron patterns for free. So glad I stopped because I almost drove by.
I finished this sign tonight. I am in at least one show in the fall. I am TRYING to have all my stuff done,so I am not racing to get it done days before hand. Surfing all the wonderful blogs with so many things I want to try, never enough time.
I dyed these eggs using men's silk ties. The ties were not as easy to find as I thought they would be. I went to 3 thrift shops looking for ties. I found 3 ties at one. The other two didn't have the silk ties but I did not walk out empty handed.
Here is my finds for the day.All for $8. The bassinet is in great shape. The beaters were a buck apiece.
I did get some wool sweaters and wool skirt, too. The bassinet is big, don't know for sure where I'm going to set it. I'll figure that out later.
I started my decluttering. I had a brown paper bag full to take to one of the thrift shops I go to. I came out of the thrift shop with two bags. Made myself stay home today. I was going to a thrift shop in another town today, talked myself out of it. Worked on the wool mittens, wool sweaters are getting harder to find. I do have plenty to work with.
