Now first for the something new. A few weeks ago I was reading someone's blog (can't for the life of me remember which blog, sorry) and they showed this light box kit. I have been wanting one, it was on Amazon, and I happened to have an Amazon gift card buring a hole in my pocket.
So my mom and I headed to Lawrence (home of the University of Kansas). Such a cute town and you have never seen such a thriving downtown. Lawrence refuses to let a mall be built so they can keep the downtown prosperous and it works. Tons of shops and restaurants in an adorable small town setting and the whole placed packed to the gills with people. I should of taken a picture but that's what Google is for, go look it up :) We went to an antique mall, goodwill and Salvation Army. Here's what came home with me
The little mica bird was cute and funny, the best combo in a person or a mica bird. Check out his crazy eyes
But open it and it's a box. I wonder what kind of roses were in it. They were "delicately scented" for a delicate lady so nobody would have ever given them to me.
These red and yellow glasses are tiny! I'm talking maybe hold one shot of peppermint schnapps tiny! Hey, maybe that's what I will use them for! Just kidding, my drinking days are loooooong behind me.
And speaking of dress forms, last week I was at Goodwill dropping off a car load of stuff. I had to run inside real quick, not to shop but to use the restroom. Hey, it might be true. Anyway, while I was dashing for the restroom something caught my eye.
Tell me you wouldn't have stopped and grabbed that. I have been wanting a dress form forever. Preferably an older one, and I still do (Celeste, keep looking!) but I thought this was fun. I think I am going to clothespin old postcards and stuff to it. Wouldn't that be cute?
So that is my last two weeks in junk. See, not bad hu? And like a said, the clean up and clean out is going great. Not quite done with it yet (it's a very big job) but I will post some pics of my progress very soon! Till then!
