In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Treasures and Crafty stuff

I have been garage sailing once in the last month and a half, and I've been to the flea market twice, so I thought I'd show you a few of my treasures. Granny Bees are gonna want these wool coats! Thing is, the two green ones fit me, so I'm not sure I'll be able to cut them up. (the color is off in the pics...the left one is green and the middle one is yellow)

This shirt does not fit, but I had to buy it! Take a closer look. It's made completely out of vintage embroidered linens.


This is Gertie. I bought her at a flea market. My friends convinced me I needed her in one of the bathrooms of my new house, holding hand towels or something. Maybe an extra roll of t.p?

I'm a sucker for vintage luggage.

and wooden spools of thread...

and boxes. I liked the lid.

My friend went sailing while I picked up rocks last Friday, and she bought me this yarn. It's oreo heart acrylic and she knows I don't like that type of yarn, but she liked the colors. So do I. I'm thinking....a banner...or do you call it bunting? Or do the English call it bunting...who knows...but you know what I mean, right?

And these pens....I made them. Well I didn't make the pens, I wrapped the pens in clay and baked them. Pretty cool huh? I decided the only crafty projects I am doing right now are ones that I can actually finish.

Now I have a question for you. I have used 90% of my space for pics on my blog. What do I do when I run out of space? HELP?

  3. I love that you use the word "sailing" for your adventures. Great finds. You would be too fun to go hunting with.
    As for the space for photos. I know we discussed this before.. Where do I go to see how much I have used? Im scared to check. Im gonna check out what Fiona said, about the cost of more space too.
    Love to you on this strange weather day~

  5. Well I did not know about the picture space. I wonder where I stand on that? Wooden spools, love them! I think you should use for the guest towel. It would look great!

    Thanks Fiona. Looks like I'm going to have to buy some pic space since I can't post without pics.
