Treasure Hunt

Posted on

I wanted to share with you some of the goodies I’ve picked up here and there.  This purse was found in one of my favorite booths at one of my favorite flea markets.  I am completely besotted with this handbag.  I carry it with me everywhere.  It’s just absolutely perfect!

I just thought that this Bible game was interesting. I haven’t seen one before and it even appears to have all its pieces.

I am always on the look out for affordable, darling little earrings. These little flowers were so pretty! I was very excited to be able to claim them and bring them home!

Finally, our library’s annual book sale not only yielded a great deal of wonderful reading material, but a selection of albums as well. These are all in near mint condition and were purchased for a mere song!

This is a ten disc set complete with booklet. Cost was only $1.00!

What can I say? I'm a band girl at heart!

This one will be perfect for Halloween!

Well, that’s it until the next treasure hunt!

Treasure Hunt

Last weekend we got out of the house and went on a little vintage treasure hunt.  We had so much fun and we found some great treasures!

Isn’t this cherry red handbag awesome!  I’ve had my eye on it for awhile and finally brought it home.

These two portraits have a sticker on the back that says “A Cameo Creation.”  I discovered these last year and just fell in love.  I have found several in various places over the year and am excited to be able to add these to my collection.

I found these two necklaces and just thought that they were gorgeous!  The price was right, too!  Oh, and the pearl earrings aren’t vintage.  I found them on sale (1/2 off) at Kohl’s and was delighted.  They are a perfect match!

This was another awesome find.  My first Ray Conniff album was called “S’Marvelous.”  I found it when we first began collecting vinyl and I absolutely adore it.  I love Ray Conniff’s music and this album is a great addition to the collection.

I have often looked at vintage gloves.  They are so pretty, but usually not in the best of shape and rarely fit.  I have small hands and have always had a hard time finding any gloves that fit.  These fit perfectly and have the sweetest detailing.

Well, that’s it for this vintage treasure hunt.  I can’t wait for the next one!

A little music for Valentine’s Day!

I visit a blog called Stax o’ Wax on a regular basis. Esther has a wonderful collection of records and she’s kind enough to share them with us. We have quite a collection of records and I love listening to the old music. It’s fun to see what kind of treasures Esther has. This week, I discovered the soundtrack to An Affair to Remember and simply had to download it. I thought that this might make the perfect music for Valentine’s Day and it seemed the perfect way to share Esther’s blog with all of you. So, go check it out and see what treasures you can find. And for my fellow Trekkers, she has all of Leonard Nimoy’s albums. So awesome!!!

Inspiration Everywhere!

I finally completed my banner tonight with a little help from hubby! I am so excited to be sharing with you the end results of my class experience! I do so enjoy Jessica Sprague’s classes and highly recommend them! In this class, entitled Inspiration Everywhere, we explored the things that can inspire us and we challenged our creativity. We made an Art Journal, a mixed tape, an inspiration book, and a pretty banner to hang in our work area where it can inspire us throughout the coming year. I had a lot of fun making the art journal and hope to continue adding to it in the new year. Of course, mix tapes are always fun. In making this one I tried to include a wide variety of music and keep it upbeat and fun! I had purchased a binder to use as an inspiration book (a place for pictures, etc that inspire) quite sometime ago and had never gotten around to actually making the book. Jessica Sprague gave me the push I needed to get this project underway. The last project was a banner. This one became more of a challenge than I anticipated. It wasn’t complicated. I just kept running into little snags here and there. Today, I finally overcame and am quite proud of my beautiful bunting!

This was so much fun! For information about Jessica Sprague and her classes click here.

Happy Birthday Beethoven!!!
