I can't believe I haven't posted all week. . .well, actually I can. I've been WAY consumed with my paying job and haven't had time for anything else: blog posting, jewelry listing, or even being very creative at all. Sigh. All work and no play makes Hope. . . you know the rest. And, it's Mardi Gras here too. I do plan on taking a break to catch a parade this evening, but that means no Valentine's Day dinner with the hubby. (He's not a huge Mardi Gras fan.) It's definitely been a balancing act here lately. Anyway, I realized I had some pictures of my recent 'thrifty' finds so I figured I had a little time to pop in and share this stash with you.
As Pat and I were cruising around the back roads, we stumbled on an estate sale where I picked up these goodies.
|An alphabet/number stencil and some ink|
|A collection of rubber stamps and a couple of cake tins|
|You can't really beat that for a quarter|
|On the bottom of that pile of books is a canvas I've already gessoed. Oh, and the book on the left is full of Chinese text!|
Oh, and I'm linking up this post with . . .
