A Busy Week-End With A Few Finds!


This was a busy week-end!

One of those week-ends where you need to have a few more days attached to the week-end to feel like you've had a week-end!

Estate sales were not that great this week-end.

I only hit two and they were pretty overpriced.

But here are a few things I managed to pick up while out on the hunt!






I was so excited to find the clip-board pictured above.

Those particular boards are harder for me to find.

Oh yes, I did find another spool of paper ribbon to add to my ever growing collection.

Greetings Debbie~ I'm finally back from my summer long blogcation.
As summer comes to a close in our Pacific Northwest...there's one thought that can cheer me up and it's the anticipation of Fall with all the autumnal colors....providing creative inspiration.
Looks like you found enough trophies to keep you busy creating through winter. You can never have to much paper ribbon... nor run out of ideas to use it.
I've enjoyed catching up. Please stop by...I look forward to the return of your company.
Sweet wishes,
Sara

Hi! Just found your wonderful blog while searching old blogs and going to theirs. Loved your treasures you found at the estate sales. No weekend is complete for me unless I find at least one treasure at a garage sale, estate or junk shop! Yesterday, it was a total of $0.95! I a 25 cent potted 'Christmas' cactus in an aged tiny clay pot and brought 7 other pots to match. Making a border for my small storage building along the large brick pavers. I noticed you like paper ribbon. I am involved with doing the tables for 4 weddings right now and looked everywhere for the beige paper lace ribbon I use to have. Counldn't find any but found huge-350 yards of colored paper lace ribbon for CHEAP-$3.29!
I put enough to go around clear clear (straight sides) glass votives using double side tape on the ends and then tie a clear or colored organza ribbon around that and make a bow or glue on an initial or charm. Really cute!
The source for the ribbon is on ebay: Maxwell's Paper Lace Ribbon on Ebay-Scott Watkins site.
I never found the white or creme clored paper lace I wanted-he didn't have that-but I sprayed painted some and it worked perfectly! Have a great day. Sharon
