Goodies in the Mail

Today, I got a package in the mail. It's like a mini Christmas in a box. This past week Mindy at Primitiques 'n Poetry had a garage sale. Now, this could be dangerous to go to garage sales and never leave my desk chair. And to shop at midnight in your jammies is extra special. I scored a few goodies that I love. I really like cobalt blue glass in my kitchen. I will take a pic soon of that collection for a post. Then I have to confess that I also love black glass. Amethyst glass in particular is my favorite and is getting harder to find. But any black glass will work and she had this plate on a milk glass base as a server with the cute beaded knife. Love it. This also ties in my growing collection of white milk glass. Do you see a common thread going on here, it is GLASS. I can't help it, it just finds it's way home with me everywhere I go. But, to break that rut, I jumped out and grabbed this METAL scrub board. It is adorable and I plan that it will go in my laundry room. Thanks for the online garage sales Mindy.
Which gave me the idea that I can post some of the crazy little items that have collected around my house. They are multiplying like rabbits! If you are interested in purchasing any of them, just email me. Watch my side bar for new additions as I can get them photoshopped. (If that is such a word...makes sense to me!)
Check this out....
This little memo board is a decorative black frame highlighted with a touch of silver. The fabric backing has a western theme with a sage green ribbon. It is 8 3/4 X 6 3/4" at the outside edges of frame. The back has a sawtooth hanger.
This piece is $6.
I used vintage linens to create several accent pillows. This one is a pale aqua fine linen with embroidery and decorative edge.
The measurement is 11 X 7". I made a pillow insert that is removable. The pillow insert is striped pillow ticking stuffed with polyester fiberfill. It creates a very quaint look.
This aqua accent pillow is $12.
and Last selection for today....

I made several of these watches. There are a few different color combos and no 2 are alike! I can send pics of the assortment if you want more options. These get a lot of attention and add some kick to your accessories.
This hot pink one is a dupioni silk foundation with a variety of kicker colors. The band is about 1" wide and silver on the watch parts.
Watch is $15.MORE TO COME
Thanks for stopping by!
