Saturday stuff: I added a few new/old tags to my Etsy Shop- SugarPinkMoon.
And then, Karla came over and we made MORE stuff. She made some really pretty wallpaper tags and she has pictures of them on her blog- check it out.
She also brought some of her famous chocolate zucchini muffins that are full of good for you stuff like flax seed and applesauce that she hides with tons of chocolate. Karla is really good about bringing food to me or sending it home with me- I gained 10 lbs last Christmas and I'm blaming 8 of them on Karla's fudge- I think she uses the whole butter cow to make her Christmas fudge.
Karla and I glued and glittered, and used some of Heather of Pretty Petals real silver glitter- it is the BEST. Unfortunately, this picture doesn't show any of it...poor planning on my part....
Also on Saturday- I got up early to go to my friend Carol's garage sale. Carol has several booths at the antique mall where I have my spot and hosts a local current events radio show and her co-host calls her "Carol Jean the garage sale queen"- and she really is. A couple of weeks ago she paid $2 for a ring, cleaned it up and realized it was platinum with real diamonds- appraised at about $2000- talk about a diamond in the rough!
Besides being a local radio celebrity, Carol also appears in the movies. When a movie films in the Kansas City area, she's often in it- she's been in Mr & Mrs Bridge, Michael Landon's TV production of Where Pigeons Go to Die, and perennial favorites Blood Thirsty Cannibal Demons and Zombie Bloodbath 2. But besides being a great shopper and starlet, I think the coolest thing she's ever done is that she was in a U2 video- she played the melting woman in The Last Night on Earth video. Carol had to lie in a gutter and have Karo syrup poured over her so she could "melt". Carol told me, "The band has a very nice young gentleman who plays the guitar, they call him "The Edge"- and he was very worried about me and said 'Me Mum wouldn't put up with that'- he kept bringing me water".
The real reason I tell this story---- if you've ever dreamed of being in a music video- it's not too late, Carol was over 60 when she made her rock 'n roll dream come true- wait, I don't think that was her dream....maybe it was MY dream.
But- I really just want you to see what I got at Carol Jean the Garage Sale Queen's rummage sale.
Gorgeous old floral drapes.
Stuff with original boxes- I don't necessarily even like the stuff inside- I just love the old boxes- and who wouldn't want PRINCESS candles on their next birthday cake? And Red Devil glazer points have to hold better!
A couple of vintage frames that look pretty good even without pictures.
And a whole basket of little drink umbrellas - I'm not sure why I bought them- I guess I just couldn't resist the price- $2 for the WHOLE basket!
I wonder how they would look with glitter.....
