I know people having been waiting for this! I hope I don't disappoint anyone!
Yep, you got it!! It's a dog bed for my princess!
Now, you might say, she won't go into that (that is what my hubby said as he rolled his eyes and shook his head!)
Well, see for yourself!

When she's done, I'll load up the pockets with her toys. Fun thing about this is, I only paid $2.00 for the suitcase! My hubby had to buy a piece of steel to keep the lid propped open but it's worth it, I think.

More Thrift Shop Finds

First item is the Trivial Pursuit game that is like new! I think I'll use the cards and make thank you notes from them.
Two cute metal flower pins! Remember these?
Okay, this is strange! At first, I thought it was a pin, but it's actually 8 celluloid buttons that someone has cleverly wired together for an ornament!

This is a hard sided piece of luggage. I have a project in mind for this. If it works out, I'll let you know, if it doesn't work out the way I expect it to, you will never see this again! LOL!

More Thrifty Finds!

More thrift shop finds! I love this craft book, it has some really nice projects to do!
Look at this night light done with a glass tile, paint and glass gems:
Simple wooden jack-o-lanterns:
Witches hats made with small clay flower pots!
Star cookies:
Curtains made from old linen hankies:
Simple lace candle ring:
Photo holders made with wooden blocks:

I think this is my favorite! Normal baseballs turned into these:
Okay, these might not excite you as much as they do me! Peanuts books, just image the beads I can make!

Let's all do the Snoopy Dance together, shall we? LOLOLOL! Oh, in case you are wondering, I paid $1.50 for the craft book and .27 cents for each one of the Peanuts Books!

Thrift Shopping!

I feel SO lucky to find this one! It's a wallpaper sample book, the kind you see at Lowe's, Home Depot, etc.
These photos aren't the best, the colors in this book are awesome!

It's fun to have paper all ready coordinated!
This one has to be one of my favorites in the book and it has several different colors of the same pattern!

I can't wait to use these for paper beads!

And, I finished doing some more tokens in gold.

Here's the top hat:
