Attic Treasures

Hello and welcome to a new, old feature here on Butterfly Dreams. I love sharing the treasures I find at flea markets and thrift stores. Coming up with a different name for each post of this nature is not so much fun. As a result I have decided to introduce a new/old feature called Attic Treasures where I will share photos of my latest treasures. Here you will find all sorts of vintage treasures and will have all the fun of exploring grandma’s attic or in my case grandpa’s garage. My grandpa loved yard sales and auctions. He bought all kinds of stuff and then had his own garage sales. His garage was always full of stuff. It was a grand adventure to dig in all the boxes and see what treasures I could find. I am still treasure hunting today. Most recently, I uncovered this pretty alarm clock.

I just love the colors and it’s perfect on my bedside table.

Over the summer I found several treasures while visiting my mom. One of those was this very pretty, glamourous lipstick holder/mirror. I carry it in my make up bag and feel so elegant and glamourous whenever I use it.

For awhile now I have been searching for a red beaded necklace. I was thrilled to find this one in my favorite booth. It’s perfect.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this maiden voyage of Attic Treasures! There will be more to come! Happy Hunting!!!!


A Great Bargain, A New Love, and Warm Hats

My husband and I were out and about this weekend. I thought I’d share some of our more fun and interesting finds. After getting married I discovered that my husband doesn’t go to sleep without either music playing or a sound machine turned on. The thunderstorm and rain buttons are his favorites. Unfortunately, the CD player and the big sound machine/alarm clock take up a bit too much room in the suitcase, so we do without while traveling. Well, we did without until now. Thanks to Walgreens we can take the thunderstorm and rain with us wherever we go. We found this little travel alarm clock/sound machine and only paid $3.99. I just love a good sale!

I am always on the look out for chapstick or lip balm of some kind that will also add a little color or shine to my lips. When my lips get dry I know they need something with moisture, but I also like something a little dressy, especially when I’m wearing other make-up. I stumbled upon this Neutrogena lip nutrition on sale at Target and decided to give it a try. It feels wonderful on my lips, smells great, and provides a subtle shine. On a green note, I also like Chapstick’s new all natural line.

We stumbled upon a yarn sale of sorts at Wal-Mart. Last year my sweet husband made this wonderful, warm, winter hat for me. I found three skeins of yarn that I just loved. Hubby has promised more warm hats this year. Pretty cool, huh?

Finally, a couple of new books that I just had to mention. While at Lifeway Christian, I noticed several of the Kid Concoction books and wished I could find one on sale. Five minutes later, I was perusing their discount section and there it was, The Ultimate Book of Kid’s Concoctions. We already made the Scratch N Sniff watercolor paint in Bible class Sunday morning. A package of Kool-Aid mix, a tablespoon of water, and a picture of fruit make a wonderful craft project for teaching a lesson on the Fruits of the Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23. The kids loved it! It’s on a list of fun things to do with my nephews while their little sister is making her arrival. I’m hoping to make things fun for them, especially the 3 year old, while Mom is busy!

I also found this makeover book. Most girls enjoy makeovers and all of us love a little pampering every now and again. I love the idea of working on the inside as well as the outside. I’m looking forward to reading this book.
