Back at it!......

I have taken a small break from
my thrifting habit to focus on my artwork....
but after 3 weeks I had to go out!
I was having withdrawel!

I got these great items at a twice a year Flea Market
in a nearby city...

I got this great big piece of Toile
from a lady clearing out her project stash
.25 cents!
I jumped on that, missed a nice piece of barkcloth by a few seconds!
The Homer Laughlin plate was $1.00!
This was the pattern my great grandmother had so I try and pick up cheap pieces
to add to the set.
I love the soft colors of it and how light and airy the flowers seem.
These tiny shakers were also $1.00
I think I will try using one or two in a soldering project
and maybe some of them for fabulous glitter shakers?

For some reason I have been wanting a compact lately...
Drooling over lots of great vintage ones on Etsy
and then at the same booth where I found the fabric and the shakers
I found this lovely little Avon compact
it is in great shape for plastic of its' age.
The little butterfly is a vintage hairclip and I couldn't resist the bluebird
I am always attracted to the color in these little painted pieces.
I paid $1.00 for both!
Got to get the Sparkly on!
The bow is also a hairclip
and the necklace has a nice patina on the metal now
I really like that it is not perfectly shiny.
$4.00 for all.
The blue rhinestone piece has a clasp so it can hang from a necklace
or it has a hole where I think a jumpring could be attached or maybe a pin?
I thought the horseshoe piece was so vintage but something you'd see on
Carrie from Sex and the City!
It is a brooch or necklace.
$2.00 for both!
I had some great jewelry scores this day...
I have not always been a jewelry collector but when pieces
capture my attention and they are as great a deal as these I pounce!

Head on over to
Her Library Adventures

Happy Sunday!
