Treasures Hunting, Plays And A Little Crafting On The Side!

Wow, it's pretty bad when you look at your last post and it was one week ago. Life has been super busy. We've had rehearsals every night this past week. I say we, because my #1 one and I worked the "Green Room"(this is where the kids go when they are not on stage)during rehearsals. So we've been gone quite a bit too. It was so fun seeing the play come together though. Friday was opening night, so we got our fanciest duds on and went out for the big event. The show runs again this coming week-end, Friday through Sunday. So if you're in town and would like to get out and enjoy a musical. Be sure to check out CYT's website for more information. Here is a picture of Aslan, Mrs. Beaver and the Professor after the performance.

I was able to get out Saturday and do a little estate shopping. Boy, it felt good to do a little shopping! Here are a few of my finds this week-end.

Do you see the old wig head I picked up this week-end. I've got three of these things, I think that would make a collection. I am a total sucker for them. Well, this one would make four. I seriously considered keeping it but I was good, I resisted. I priced it and took it to the shop before I could become attached. These are wonderful to display vintage jewelry on.

Last week, while I was out estate shopping I came across a bunch of Valentine boxes. I have wanted to find these little things and play around with them using vintage paper. I was able to finally finish three of these yesterday.

Thank you for stopping by.

Great Valentine boxes-do things like that sell over there? Not so much here.
It's so exciting about the play!

I absolutely love your finds. And what you have done with the chocolate boxes totally rocks! I love them! Of course, the wig head is awesome. I'd say you did super good. Glad to hear the play went well opening day. ~Mindy

Well; sure looks like we have some things in common... :o)
When I look at your pictures I remember getting a old book, similar to yours, and I can't recall where I've put it;- to many treasures!
Do you have a booth at Monticello? I love going there & always find something "I cant live without"!
BTW - Your pictures are awesome & the candy boxes turned out beautifully.
Come say HI to me, if you can get to the BARN HOUSE sale in May. Always nice to see the person behind the name ;o)
