I purchased this at a thrift store for 49 cents. It was the first owl item I’ve purchased. I am now passionate about
the hunt for small owl items.
This one is a painted rock. It was also purchased at a thrift store a few weeks ago.
I really like this one…… Maybe it just reminds me of “Mom and Son”!
I love thrifting with a passion. I now have a number of owls. I want to paint a shadow box and put them inside in a small grouping.
I picked up a house box that I want to paint. Heaven knows when I will ever get around to it.
Items I collect.
Lavender hankerchiefs were one of my first collections. I would get them at Antique stores. This was before I really knew about thrift stores!
Wood Carved Santa Tree Ornaments. They were popular a few years back. I rarely see them any more.
Vintage quilting fabric, quilts and stuffed items made out of old quilts…teddy bears, rabbit, heart shape.. more teddy bears.
Small porcelain dolls that I have hanging from a small Christmas tree.
Small Sewing Machines i.e. pencil sharpener
Hard Cover Suitecases. I have two. One I picked up at a garage sale this past year…filled with embroidered items, fabric and vintage table cloths..for $4.00!
My most recent thrift store purchase was a large trunk. I will try and photograph it soon. It needs to be cleaned…. My Dad said a little bleach in water should take the musty smell away. We could use it to put toys in….or some of my quilts! I just don’t want to put the quilts in unless I can get the smell out of the box.
I have in this past year been able to pick up some scrapbooking supplies.
I’ll write more…time to put the little one to bed!
He wanted me to add this. His Eric Carle collection of books.
Although we didn’t read Eric Carle tonight. We are on the second book of the Merlin Trilogy. He is pointing at the work awkwardly. It’s a word that is a little tough for a 1st grader! We’ve been reading by flashlight this past week. It is fun and helps with the wind down process…..as many lights off as possible….it’s magic…like Merlin the magician! Nite.
