Flea Market Finds

My sons and I went to the flea market this morning. It was a fun way to spend my Sunday. The boys went off on their own, and I was left to dig through the "old" stuff. I found these 2 vintage prints. They are framed, and the colors are really soft and beautiful. I think I will put them in my ETSY shop soon.
I also found this old Christmas tree topper. It was in the original box, so I was thrilled.

I think the box is as pretty as the topper!!
And last, but certainly not least this wonderful Christmas Candolier. I love these things, but they are kind of hard to find. I have spread the word to everyone I know that I would love to add them to my Christmas collection, and lucky me, I had someone who loves me pick one up for me at a yard sale. My sister, who normally doesn't frequent sales, has been keeping her eyes open for me, and she found one this weekend!! Thanks dear, I love you.
Well, I am working on some Halloween and Christmas Garlands.....I will post pictures when they are done. In the meantime, Have a lovely day.

It's working!!!

Hey everybody....I got my new laptop all hooked up, and guess what?? I can upload pictures now. I am soo excited. I thought I would show you a few things that I picked up at an estate sale. I got 6 rolls of this absolutely beautiful ribbon. It says it was made in Italy, and it is a beautiful green color. I will definately be listing this in my Etsy shop soon.I found these adorable cupcake picks at a garage sale. They are the most adorable angels playing instruments. I don't know what I will make with them, but I am excited.
And I also found this set of cake toppers. The bride has a beautiful lace veil, and the detail on her dress is amazing. I love that the set has a minister also. His little bible is too cute for words.
Well, I am on a roll, and will be posting lots of pictures in the next few days. Have a lovely day.

Stupid Computers

Well, I still can't load pictures onto my computer. I am soo frustrated. My son is going to get my laptop up and running, so maybe I can on there. In the meantime, I wanted to tell you that my niece chose 3 names for my pink drawing. Jenn of Sweet Eye Candy Creations, Tristan of Enchanted Revelry, and Gabriela Delworth will all be receiving pink packages from me. I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

Perfume Bottles and a Pink Giveaway

First of all, I have to apologize for not having lovely photos to share, and to show how very sorry I am, I am having a giveaway. I promise it will have lots of pinkness in it to celebrate the day. Just leave a comment, and I will pick a winner Monday afternoon. ( I will show photos of the giveaway as soon as the computer is fixed). I have a beautiful collection of perfume bottles. I rec'd my first one from my Great Grandmother when I was 8. I was addicted. Over the years I have collected some really fabulous ones. I had incredible photos to share with everyone, but once again my computer is not cooperating. My son is trying to fix it now. I promise to show photos as soon as the problem is fixed, until then have a lovely pink Saturday.
