A warm Hoosier Welcome

It has been a while since this Hoosier gal has posted anything. Am trying to get back in the groove . Will be posted sewing, decorating and crafting tips. I like frugality, using what you have in your present stash.

Garage Sale , Yard Sale they are all so much fun!

Who can resist a good sale, sometimes a steal for unique items or just something that you can use and not spend much of your money on?
Every once in a while I get out and scour a few. The past couple weekends coughed up a few treasures as you can see by my photos.
I just LOVE the vintage forest green crepe paper nut cups with handles. They were in the original packing. At the very back are a Vintage Japan couple, boy and girl bookends.
In my studio I have a shelving with my collectible Santas, some I made and others bought, plus vintage Christmas. This is one of my design stimulator areas in my studio. So I just had to pick up the vintage bottle trees and green hard plastic sleigh.
The one santa is a Naapco. Not sure about the Tea Strainer Mug? Anyone have info on this?
Enjoy the photos.

Great finds -- is there anything better than getting a bargain in a place that has everything? As much as it feels like fall right now, that pile of goodies makes me wish December was closer!

Awwwwww so christmasy. I love vintage decorations. My best friends mom has vintage halloween candles in tons of shapes like ghosts, grave stones, and cute witches. She doesn't light them because they are worth more than the wax now..... There is always something special about vintage. I love it!
And I like the japanese couple, ceramics always warms my heart.

This is my first generation of pendants. During October I will be designing and mass producing new, porcelien like pendants that will be improved in shape, design, color, texture, and will even have decals on them. Mostly nature, but also of people, old cars, and such.

So get this generation before it is gone!

People have bought non-listed ones and are super surprised at how light weight they truly are.

Heart on the Line:

Dash of Red: $5

Harrison Lake: $5

Eternity: $10

Hazelnut Glory: $8

Floral to a Point: $10

A bit more about my pendants.....

These affordable yet elegant pendants are timeless and will look gorgeous with any fashion style. Compliments will be made for whoever wears them. These one-of-a-kind pieces makes a great gifts for a birthday, anniversary, or holiday. These pendants will look great with whatever type of chain you use!
