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!

Art at the WWW

Stuff I loved but didn't buy...This book.

Actually, there was another book there, a scrapbook, that was VERY old. It even had a newspaper article of Tennyson's death. Old post cards, etc. Only 20 bills, and I didn't buy it. I also didn't get a picture of it. Bummer.

These pincushions were adorable. I loved them. Angela, from The Country Cellar made them.



And this purse......L.O.V.E. it.



That's the front.


This is the back.



Made my Grandma Peden's Porch.
The absolute only reason I didn't buy this stuff is because I have no idea where I'd put it. I have lots of pin cushions, papers, purses, etc. And we are trying to move. And I am trying to have less stuff, not more. But I really liked it all. Especially the purse, but I just bought one with Christmas money back in December.



Now this stuff is art on display.



stained glass



oil? painting



Veiner-schneitzel (ok not really - but it's schnetters something or another)



Rug Hooking



And this is what I did buy.


This old box. I thought I could actually use it for storing small items in that I take with me on trips and such. Like crochet hooks, needles, thread, etc.



It's wooden.










On the back it says 2 pr. Men's Hose, size 10



Side view



Inside...some kid got a hold of some crayons at some point in life and scribbled on it.



The outside



I bought some wool. This booth had wool remnants for $5.00 a basket full and it included the basket.



And this wool....I buy from them every year. I like to use it for bags, pillows, applique'...fun stuff. I'm not a rug hooker, but it's good wool for rug hooking.



I bought this from them when they attended a granny bee meeting and had some for sale.



And here is a couple of previous years purchases.



And I bought this on Saturday morning. The lady got it at the goodwill store in her town and brought it with her. It was only 12 bills...how could I pass it up.

  1. Cindy, When we go to events like that we want things, but we know we really do not need them. I have gotten so much better about not buying something I can't use either for myself, or as a gift. The little box is good for holding things...that's what I look for :):)Smiles, xo, Susie

  2. Well I certainly would have had a hard time walking away without those top items I was actually drooling but like you I am trying to stop hoarding and that is hard but I am doing pretty well. Do you know I now hoard memory cards for my photos good thing they are small. Awesome stuff thanks for sharing Tennyson yup still drooling. B

  3. Love what you passed up and what you bought. I really like the pin cushion with little red riding hood? on it. And the wool you should join one of the Sew Along's in blogland and make a quilt or penny rug...How much fun! I wonder if one of those eraser sponges would take the crayon off the box. Really sweet box for storing crafty things.
