December Finds

I haven't posted my finds lately.
It's been busy around here getting ready for Christmas.
We've been doing a bit of painting,
making garlands,
folding and glueing ornaments.

Last weekend, I found some wonderful things
tucked away in the back of a booth
at the antique mall.

There were also a few things that I'd "organised"
and hidden from myself
instead of putting them in my online shop.

I found these letter tiles zipped away in an old plastic bag
Tucked at the back of a booth.

Today, I took them outside
spread them out on my favorite tree trunk
and made words with them.

Merry Christmas
What an awesome find!

There were also
Bingo Cards

Tucked away, I found some things
that were from my trip to Dubuque, Iowa
a few months ago.

so much like the one my granny used to have.

Drawers from an old watchmaker's desk
The desk was beyond repair,
so we salvaged the drawers from it.

I've been needing to refill my shop,
but the oh-so-shiny-things of Christmas time have distracted me.
So now the shelves have a few more items,
maybe I can squeeze in another project, or two......or three?

  1. Love those oil cans and bingo cards (and the drawers; yes--I love them all!)--I love all the Christmas decorating too, but miss seeing all the "regular" goodies. I'm going to do my next few posts on my junk finds--I'm missing it! Have a great weekend.

  2. The flower pots are awesome! I paint flower pots for my yard. The stranger the shape, the better for me!

    Have a wonderful Friday!
