~~~Found Treasures~~~

I haven't shared my love of garage sales. Every Saturday Morning I pick my parents up at 7:15 am and away we go. Friday night I spread the paper out, highlight the Saturday sales, and make my list according to time and location! I use map quest if I'm unsure of an address, and I place a star or note "sounds good" next to the ones that sound good! It usually takes us most of the morning to get to all the sales, then we stop at Walmart, then Dad buys us lunch. Today we were home by 12:45 pm, a trunk full of treasures, bellies full. This is the normal Saturday routine! Here are some of my treasures from today.

Vintage Birthday candle holders complete in there own little storage jars, and mini cupcake liners.
Miniature molds some in animal shapes. I'm trying to think of a project for these. Maybe part of a garland or mini Christmas ornies for a kitchen tree. Suggestions are always welcome!

I love vintage jewelry, these costume pieces were bright and caught my eye. The yellow necklace still has the tag marked Coro. The green is a pin.

Children's craft projects from years gone bye. I love the character in these little guys.

And I am always loving anything Christmas. These little books would be great to add to a Christmas doll. The tiny clothes pins and lines would make a cute garland, the pine cone and berry picks will come in handy when I start making Christmas items.
And then it was Nap time!!!

Vintage Felt Punkies

I love these little vintage looking felt punkies. These are made from a pattern by Jennifer Murphy, she is so talented! These were easy and fun to make, these two are on sale at another blog I sell my hand mades on. If your interested you can see them here. Thanks for continuing to follow my blog and support my love of hand made crafts.
