Vintage Finds for Classes…

Sep 13, 2011

While Alan and I were down surprising my nephew this past weekend, I did some junking and antiquing with mom and dad. I found some awesome items to incorporate in my classes such as aluminum jello molds, milk bottle caps, sheet music, milk glass, vintage trims, lace, doilies and the best find of the day were these adorable vintage ceramic angels. They were made in Japan and are numbered. I cannot wait to get home from ScrapFest next week and begin working on some class samples to teach at The Crafty Scrapper.


I was able to purchase 24 of these little cuties in pink and blue so the class will be limited. If you are interested you best sign up as soon as sign ups are available because there will not be another class taught once it is sold out.


These wooden picnic forks will be altered using some great vintage embellishments I found. I can’t wait to alter these. I have a super cute idea in mind.


And these unique pieces of yard art where being sold at a Flea Market. I think they are awesome and plan on making a few for my yard. Although I fear one quick oncoming hail storm will take them out fast. Each one was just as gorgeous as the next. But I could never use vintage glass pieces due to the fear of the above mentioned Texas spring hail storm. But the Dollar Store I can do.

I tell ya we covered a lot of Southeast Texas territory by driving to Orange – Winnie – Sour Lake and Lumberton and covered every antique and junkin spot in between. When you come home needing a bath you know it was a great junkin day.

Tomorrow, I leave for ScrapFest. If you’re going to be attending come by and see us in the Maya Road booth. I will be helping with make-n-takes along with Caroline Lau, Ronda Palazzari and Emily Pitts. I will also be teaching classes, the Maya Road Mini Album Life Is Good at 9:00 a.m. and the Cute Cards 4 Ways Class at 10:00 a.m. then in the afternoon I have a two hour book signing in Archiver’s each day starting at 2:00. I’m so excited to go and be creative with all the creative people attending.

Safe travels everyone.

Hugs!
