Tag sale finds....Marathon projects

Friday I stopped at a tag sale. The people having it own an Antique shop and decided to liquidate so every week they will bring a truck load of items and restock their tables. I found a beautiful pair of green depression glass perfect condition candle sticks @ $1.00, a lamp with metal work that lights up on bottom and top @ $4.00,a small porcelain figurine of an Edwardian couple @ $1.00, and two needlepoint photos of a man and woman @ $2.00. I spent a whole $8.00!!!!!

Last month I bought a few image sheets from Gail and I decided to use them for large and small pouches. I love her altered images.

I am going to do a project marathon.......I gathered fabrics and laces to coordinate with each image. I want them to be dripping with dyed laces and have a vintage look. Two weeks until the show ans I have so many ideas I want to bring to life. I can only do so much, and will not fret about it.

Here we have Turquoise~~~~~~~~~

Pale Teal~~~~~~~~
and Blue (this image from a CD on eBay)

This should be fun! Have a great evening and a sunny tomorrow!
