We had a few glitches last night right before the launch.. but got it worked out in about 30 minutes and was up and running by about 8:30!! and oh my heck.. ladies (and gents).. THANk YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! The response has been just amazing and you are all so wonderful! I know there are a lot of my favorites already out of stock (canvases, my favorites pens, stencils, crayons, etc).. but rest assured we have MORE on the way! PLUS Some new items arriving daily.. like the Faber Castel pens (which will be here next week too). Asll should be back in stock mid to end of next week! I will post here when it is :) So thank you again! SMOOCH! could kiss you all!
So When I found these little goodies.. I just couldn't resist.. had to get them!
This first photo is a gorgeous knitted cream afgan! Seriously scrumptious and only $2.00! On the left is a cool old vintage photo and frame I found for a qaurter!
In this next picture.. I found the Piece on the left at a new Antique Store that just opened up here in Idaho Falls. It's an old sewing book drawer and it came filled with these old vintage books inside! The books weren't priced, so I asked her how much for all of it (the drawer was marked for $12.00).. she told me she would give me $15.00 for all of it! The books are well over 100 years old and one is a really cool tablet that has entries in it from like the 1920's.. oh my heck.. I can see some of those pages on my art! Not a bad deal for all of that! More than I usually pay for thrift shopping. but those are truly vintage and so gorgeous! The frame/book on the left is like a shadow box! I think it might have been an old jewelry box.. wit the class broken out. I thought it would make a perfect shadow box for vintage finds! It was only $1.00!
These next goodies I actually got a few weeks ago.. on my trip to Salt Lake City. My friends, Jeanne and Michelle, came with me, thrift shopping around Salt Lake City after our the conference we were attending was over. ON the left is a brown and cream linen skirt.. which I actually am debating on whether or not to WEAR or to turn into pillows for my bedroom. It was $2.00. The cream eyelet piece in front is actually a "underskirt" and I think I am going to wear it as just that! It would be soo cool under a top with the eyelet showing underneath.it ws $.75. The last piece on the right.. is a gorgeous vintage full length nightgown. Its suprisingly not see-through at all and has long sleeves. I have plans to bring the hem up to about mid thigh and wear it as a tunic with jeans or leggings and knee-high boots. It's seriously THAT CUTE. I'll do a "project restyle" post about it sometime.. and show you my before and after! The Dress cost me $5.00
These last two pieces were my MOST favorite find from the week. They are vintage crocheted pieces of art! They look newer in the photos.. but they are seriously old and very fragile. I found them at the same antique store as the drawers and books. There wasn't a price on them, so when the lady said she would give them both to me for $6.00.. I honestly thought it was a BARGAIN. They are just gorgeous! I don't usually spend that much thrifting.. but again.. hard to pass these up. Simply gorgeous!
So those are my finds for this week! This week has been CRAZY! how about you? and still more to come! Tommorow debuts my sneak peek video of the upcoming She Art Workshop!! Can't wait!! lol.. For those of you still on the fence.. you have about ONE WEEK Left to sign up! wahoo!
Well come back tomorrow.. I will have a fun video and a little mixed media piece I did this week to share with you! .. in honor of my fresh linens moodboard this week..
