Hello Dear Friends! I was going to wait until tomorrow to post about this, but tomorrow is looking to be a busy one... plus, I'm really excited about my new treasures!
This morning, Trinity and I hit a few Spring~Time tag sales while getting some other errands finished. We spent less than $5... but had so much fun with it. Here are SOME of our finds ~
I have seen some hooked items attached to old boot jacks & am thinking of how or what I'm going to do with this one. Maybe I can work up a needle punch to dress it up? I'm still thinking about this. When I saw the wooden spoons, I remembered a primitive spoon holder that I had seen. It was a hanging pocket sort of thing with slots to poke the spoons down into. Maybe I can get to work on that little ditty in the next few days. The towel holder is already hanging in our kitchen, thanks to my darling hubby... with a couple of towels drying on it from tonight's supper clean up. It isn't old, but looks it! The basket was only 10 cents... you all know, we can never have enough baskets! The broken strainer? Well... this is what it has become...
With the help and inspiration of Char at The Pickled Pepper Patch it has been reborn into a vintage, fly screen. This broken lil' treasure too ~ was only 10 cents! Tony used a grinder to cut the busted handle off for me. I asked him to leave the knobby things because I kind of liked them there. Then I painted a wooden cabinet handle/knob and screwed it to the top. I have it sitting on one of my White Ironstone dishes that I HUNT for at all the tag sales. It is empty of any foods under the screen right now... being on a strict Weight Watchers diet, our home is empty of chocolate chip cookies right now. But it is pretty cool huh?
I also found this darling little shoe form 'thingy' for $1... I just liked it, but don't have any 'make dos' planned for it...
Trinity found a new hat and a vintage Yahtzee game. I say it is vintage, because the original K Mart label is still on it. New, it only cost $3.47 'back in the day'. We spent a little time this afternoon playing the game. He beat me something silly!
Tag sales wasn't all the fun today. I was inspired by The Pickled Pepper Patch for this today too!
I have had this knife holder set for a number of years. They are not the best knives in the world, but I use them. I can now say, I'm PROUD to have this sitting on my counter. I think the change is AWESOME!
The label was found in a print program that we have downloaded on our computer. It was sweet, I thought, that is was for knife polish. Here is a close up...
So... none of this has anything to do with stitching, hooking, punching, or dolly making... but it was fun prim crafting & treasure hunting!
Wishing you all a weekend of joyous smiles & happy crafting!
