I’ve been in crafting mode lately and it seems like everything I buy is something to play with instead of sell outright. Not sure if that’s just what I’m finding or if it’s the only things my eyes are seeing. Anyway, here’s the haul from this past weekend.
I want to try making flowers out of these little tin cups.
An old, ragged hymnbook, jar of pearl beads (bonus for the lid), and a cheap, crummy clock for the face. The clock really looks bad and it’s plastic painted gold. Icky. Beyond hope. So I don’t feel bad taking it apart.
Don’t know what I might do with the silverware, but I always seem to find projects that use them and I never have any pretty enough. The watch is for a future jewelry project.
More jewelry boxes to paint. And no, I haven’t gotten (got?) around to painting the last ones and as a matter of fact, someone came in and bought the big one I pictured a few weeks ago. Hated to see it go!
Junk boxes. Part of why I love estate sales so much. And it aggrieves me when people throw this stuff away because Oh, you wouldn’t have wanted that. Well, uh… yeah. I would have. And why did I like this particular junk box?
I know I’m keeping the little heart boxes. The old ink pad I’m willing to sell, but I’m undecided about the watch box.
The Little Kiddle ring was an unexpected bonus. I didn’t see it in the box until I started going through everything. She will be going up on auction.
These are all for sale (the broom is already sold), but if you don’t mind, I’d like to enjoy the cloche thing for awhile. They said it was Pyrex? I don’t know about that, but I don’t have one just like it or that size, so I’d like to play with it for awhile first.
This is really a large box full of mostly old Christmas balls. You can’t tell if from the picture, but most are decorative. And no, I’m not keeping them. Well, maybe a few.
A French dictionary, funny little wire brush (already sold), 2 thin tape measures and old photographs. The photos will go on a Free Graphic Friday for you. The tape measures and dictionary I’ll keep for future projects. The brush? I dunno. You want it?
Glass jar because I can never resist them when they’re priced right. For sale? Yeah, probably.
The jury’s still out on whether I’m keeping this old clown costume or selling it. I do collect vintage Halloween stuff, you know, and I don’t have an old costume. I’ll make that decision next fall.
That’s about it. Forgot to take pictures of some Christmas feathery angles and some foil Christmas light reflectors. Oh, yeah. And a film box.
I found more stuff that I missed! See it here.
