Other than the sinus headache I get when it rains, or the seasons change, or the humidity changes or my nose just gets ornery, I had a great weekend.
Estate sales that were good enough that I went back for half price on Saturday- but I forgot to bring my camera.
I redid my booth at the antique mall for Halloween- a black and white display full of old leather books and clocks set to the witching hour- but I forgot to take my camera.
These images came from a great auction I went to last week. If you want to save the images, click on a picture and it will open in a new window.
I've priced and packed most of my treasures- again,sorry, no pictures because I forgot my camera.
If you'd like to check out some great pictures, do you know about Pinterest? It's a huge collection of virtual bulletin boards put together by users.
Do you ever see a picture on the internet and want to be able to find it later, so you bookmark it, but sorting through all those bookmarks gets to be overwhelming? Pinterest lets you save pictures in boards that you create.
For example, I have boards for craft ideas, collections, sewing notions, decorating (and more). You can find my Pinterest boards here.
But the best part about Pinterest- following OTHER people's boards. I don't have the patience to look all over the internet for inspiration- but I follow some great boards on Pinterest curated by other users- I let them do the looking and the pinning and I try to take a peek at those boards every few days.
A couple of weeks ago when I was selling at the Flea Market, the gentleman next to me was selling cabinet cards. He had boxes and boxes- I thumbed through them, but I only looked at the backs- if it had an interesting graphic, I bought it.
I think this one would be great to use in a Halloween themed project- but I have to wonder what made the photographer choose this design to advertise his studio...
I think if you look closely at it, there are faces in those vines and scrolls....
If you click on it, it will open in a new window and you can save it to your computer.
If you're in the Kansas City area this weekend, I'll be selling at the Old Summit Country Antique Show. I'll be set up right in front of the stage, come out and say "Hi".
I'm a sucker for old postcards and these rabbits are a couple of my favorites- a little different than the usual pastels you see for Easter- although there is something slightly cult like about the one on the left- something about the shroud and the worshiping of the egg...
Here are some scans of postcards, feel free to click on them to enlarge and download them to use for your own spring decorating.
