Would ya just look at what she brought me?
Remember a few weeks back I found some giveaway love from Lori at Wildflowers? I picked out this gorgeous necklace from Vintage Pearl stamped with my six kiddo's names. I know, right? Serious chic beauty for sure. Love it! Thanks again Lori. :)
Then my name magically jumped out over at Annie's Birdcages and Butterflies to win a set of her wooden blocks all pretty-fied and lookin' marvey! And her tags and card are so sah-weet! Check 'em out:
Each side of each block has neato stuff....like the birdie things, words, or seasonal images like below:
Aren't they the cutest? I'm displaying them on my bookshelves right now, but will prolly move them into the kitchen for the holidays....Thanks Annie!
And I made it to the Flea Market and Antique Show at my local Coliseum last night. Um, lots of sequined sweatshirts, bottles of cleaners, and knives. There were a few booths with collectables and antique-y type stuff actually worth looking at, but rather overpriced. I managed to only pick up the following two vintage soap advertisments from 1912 and 1914. Since I make soap, I thought they might looks cool framed in my cra(p)ft room.
And evidently, people actually read ads 'cause there was quite a bit of verbage on them. These days, there's maybe one sentence to 'grab' you. Or a picture of a slightly naked woman. *sigh*
I'm not sure it was even worth the $4 parking and $1 entrance fee. I certainly won't go again. The 'flea market style' represented wasn't the 'look' I'm going after, and didn't look anything like the lovely stuff I see at all the junker's sites I visit daily on my sidebar.
