I am having the most fun sifting through this bunch of vintage treasures I found this past week! Five plastic baggies filled to bursting with jewelry parts, lots of rhinestone pieces (my favorite!), buttons, glass beads, Cracker Jack toys and little thingies to make new jewelry from! And to sew onto beaded/embellished art wall quilts! I met a new friend, Stacey N., who has a great web site: http://flotsamandjetsam.blogspot.com
Thanks, Stacey! More goodies from her to show another day: wonderful German scrap paper hearts, stars, valentine boys/girls, bunnies, and pumpkins just in time for decorating handmade Thanksgiving cards!
.......and check out this new "treasure" that just came into the lives of my cousin Susan and her DH, Bobby, who live across the road from us. They are "animal people" like we are, and literally saved this baby's life last week when it was abandoned at the local shelter AFTER closing time! The poor bitty pup only weighed ONE POUND, and was covered in ticks and fleas and starving/dehydrated to the point of death. Quick action and a good vet's care saved it, and look what a darling (part Lab?) puppy they have now! Thank you, cuz! Don't you just love happy endings?!!!
