Weekend Finds and Elizabeth's March Tag

I've finally made Elizabeth's March Tag Along! In case you don't know what that is, Elizabeth makes a different tag every month, and she so generously shares the images that she uses, and wants you to tag along with her! Her blog is full of crafting inspiration!

I went thrifting on Friday, and found this huge old Mother card, which is a lovely addition to my "Mother" collection that I accidentally started last summer. I kept finding those old framed Mother poems really cheap, and they're so charming that I decided I'd start a collection! Isn't that how most collections start....by accident?

I found these old Made In Japan figurines on Wednesday, when I talked Mr. Old Glory into stopping at a Salvation Army store while we were out running errands. These were all 25-60 cents each, and that angel is something that I kept getting outbid on at Christmastime on Ebay. It's like I always say, if you wait long enough, you'll find what you're looking for, at your price! I hope YOU found some treasures this weekend too!

I had a little angel like that one with October on it, my birthday month. I wonder if my Mom still has it somewhere?

What wonderful finds, Carol! Love that Mother's Day card--may I use that for a card sometime? I love that style!

Hope your day is lovely!

Great thrifting finds. I love the Mother's Day card, but that sweet angel. So glad one finally came your way.

Love your finds -- and it's true, so many times, if you wait, the "one and only" item you felt you could NEVER find again -- Shows up again, cheaper, too!!!

The Mother card is gorgeous!
Don't you just love all the things that Elizabeth posts on her blog? I am almost done with one of her penny rugs.

I also love what you did with Elizabeth's little chick idea.
Hope your burns have healed by now. : )

Hi Carol,
I have an "accidental" collection of framed mother poems too. I would find them super cheap at thrift stores and the next thing you know I had several. I have since seen them at antique malls and they want a pretty price for them there.
Have a great week.

Carol...I had a fun weekend in Oregon at the Palmer Wirf antique show and staying at a bed and breakfast...that is another story but it was fun to get away.

I bought a Chatty Cathy and Barbies and a gnome of course.

Just stopping by tonight before I turn out the lights and back to work tomorrow. Thanks for your email...I got it!

I bet you are having fun joining in on Elizabeths Tag Swap! Oh and that quick stop in the Salvation Army sure paid off! Hugs, Diane
