Coat hanger necklace from charms4you on Etsy, $10.
After the laundry is finished, I've got to get busy drilling some shell casings because I only have 4 left! A friend of mine gave me a whole container full of spent casings yesterday which I really appreciate, and as much as I love shooting a handgun, I'm just not sure I have the time today to fit anything else in! So kids, the moral of this story is - you can expect to see some new bullet necklaces in the shop soon, and a few new stones!
Until I return from my trip with thousands of pictures, au revoir!
Invisible Colours postcard set (taken in San Francisco) from idathue on Etsy, $4.
Found at owlyshadowpuppets on Etsy, $12.
From my first trip, I got a huge old brass frame with rosettes in the corners and filigree edges. Again, keeping with the "old is gold" theme, I won't put an ornament on my tree unless it's older than me! I got this box of glittered glass balls, and by the look of the box, I'd say they are from the 60's or 70's...$2! The pretty mirror with roses isn't super old, but I know it's lived a life by the age spots on the mirror and the faded look of the silver. I can't wait to hang it!I fell in love with these aged aluminum tart molds! I put a little plant in one and I figure I'll use the other two for the intended purpose. $1 for the set.
My absolute favorite find from that trip is this little dreamboat of a tray! Oxidized and aged to perfection, It has the sweetest little bow attached to one end, and it'll be perfect in any room in my house! I'm not sure where or how I'll use it yet, but it makes a great magnetic memo board with the magnets I made to sell in my shop!
I'm too lazy to make all the shop names links, but here they are starting at the top left: littlebyrdvintage, anticovalore, contrary, lostandfawned, littlebyrdvintage, mkendall, olivevintage, storybookcharm, dkim, knittwits. Of course I hope these sellers have success and sell lots, but then again, I wish they would stay for sale until I could get them all :)
