I had to share the fun stuff I found this morning.
I got some things I've been looking for, for a long time.
Love the vintage suitcase, perfectly aged and great metal hardware and trim.
Love the tiny metal drawer/scoop with fading chippy red paint, thinking about hanging it on the wall vertically and using it as a nicknack shelf?
I also found some great old hardware and rusty buckles etc. More supplies for artwork. I also had to get that green vintage metal paint tin on the right. I even found some old potato sacks that will be a curtain eventually.
Found these cute little cup and saucer sets, too bad the pink floral Limoges cup had a chip and the saucer doesn't go with it, but I still think it's cute in a shabby chic sort of way. I plan to make tealight candle holders out of these as soon as I find the right candle sticks to attach them to.
This is my super happy wonderful find of the day. To some it may look like a rusty piece of junk but to me it's that one piece that will make organization in my studio. I've been looking for a milk carrier large enough to put my vintage blue canning jars in for quite a while. I also found 3 more blue glass canning jars as well. Now for the big question...Do I paint it?....hmmm.....
This is a piece of an old miners lantern. When I saw it I immediately thought it would make a great hanging candle holder. I painted it white this afternoon, I'll share it tomorrow.
Also found these vintage Dixie cups. I've seen them online and always thought they were cute. I got 2 full cases of them. Now what to do with them? Any suggestions?
These were hanging on a wall full of rusty old tools and things. I don't know how I spotted them but they will be neat additions to artwork. I'm also going to make molds of them because of their wonderful details.
And last I wanted to share the tags I made last night. I think they turned out well and they were lots of fun.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
