New Finds.....

Hi Girls.

Happy Friday to all of you.

I took a few days off from work this week and spent yesterday visiting several antique and occasional sale shops and I found lots of fun goodies.

My best find of the day was this sweet mini dress form mannequin that was unbelievably priced at just $7.00.  I couldn't believe the price and the fact that no one else had snapped it up before me.  It is a perfect addition to my craft room.

And I've added to my collection of scrabble tile letters with these newest ones spelling out two of the things I love the most.

I also purchased the scrabble tile holder which was already painted a pretty pink color. Seeing the painted ones now has me wanting to paint the other ones that I already have to more suit my favorite color palate. 

I was also keeping my eyes open as I wondered about the shops looking for something that I could use to hold my rolls of decorate craft/washi tapes and would also make for a decorative display piece.  I wanted something that wasn't too big or bulky and I lucked out and found this awesome vintage bulk thread spool with a wide cone shaped base that was loaded with some boring gray thread which I removed before taking my photos.

I plan on modge podging some pretty scrapbook paper onto the tube piece to pretty it up and then it will hold some of rolls of craft tape that have the larger center holes.

It works perfectly for what I was wanting and I was thrilled to find it.  And even more amazed that it was only $1.00.  I wish they had had more of them as I would have like to have had two or three of these, but this was the only one they had..

I found some other great stuff too, but I'll share those with you in my next post.

Have a great weekend !!

Awesome idea for the tape! Nice mannie! Will she be going to Carol's at The Polka Dot Closet party???
Give me a call when you have more days off and maybe we can get together!
I hope it won't snow this weekend!
I'm ready for spring!
