friday's finds

fun vintage stuff i found at that estate sale i had gone to with angie wangie in st. louie...hey, angie...there's that pearl brooch that you were gonna get & found it gone! 'cuz it was moi who snatched that cutie up, hee-hee... lovely vintage sequins & lace trim i found at an antique mall that angie wangie took me to in kirkwood (i think)... these box of letters & partial words are c. 1940s...wicked cool to use in collages & such! & more lovelies that will someday turn up in future artsy-craftsy projects! i love finding stuff such as i've shown here>>>they didn't cost very much AND someday they will come in handy for a project or two... what about you? what have you found this week? either leave a comment with your link OR as usual, you can post them on flickr here! happy friday y'all! Posted by Picasa

    That photo of vintage white items is an artistic piece all by itself. It just needs a frame. Mary Ann, Yesterday I received the little treasure trove you sent. What fun to sift through--there's so much! So so sweet of you. I've already started using bits of it in a project. I'm going to come up with something cool to send you. Thanks so much! XOXO

    Maryann,

    I just love all of the goodies that you found! I am so envious. And I especially love those lil boxes of letters. What year did they come from? I can't wait to see what you do with them.
