Once again, this week's garage sales were a bust! My pal Nancy and I went to probably 15 sales, and I only spent $3! And only one thing was worth taking a picture of. Frankly, I can't even remember what else I got, it was that bad! All I can remember is this:
Isn't she a beauty?! An old American Tourister bag. She's in mint condition, and still has the keys to the lock. I'm going to take her with me when we go to the Covered Bridge Festival! The only problem with this bag is that after I got it home, I realized it has a strange smell, kind of like the smell of a hot iron. It's not a gross smell, I'd just rather it didn't smell at all! Any suggestions on how to get rid of the smell?
I won this old lunch box on Ebay. Of course I had to have it! Anything old with a flag has got my name written all over it!
Here is the backside. Gosh, I love this thing!
And here is where it will spend eternity! It's a riot of color up there, isn't it?!
I've decided, after seeing so many incredible handmade things on different blogs, that I want to start crafting again. I'm the type of crafter who doesn't make anything too difficult or time-consuming. I'm impatient! So I took the above items.....
and made a verrrry simple little fall banner. I'm thinking I might go back and add some little teeny tiny yo-yos.
And these items from Hobby Lobby turned into this:
It's so hard to get a good picture of a mirror without reflecting the untidy mess across the room! Well, you get the idea. It was simple. Right up my alley! This week I want to show a yo-yo quilt that I started 15 years ago. That's right, 15 years ago. That's all I'm sayin'!
