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.
