I am so excited to present my new banner above! I made it all by myself using Picasa, and have to say I'm mighty pleased with myself. This is because I had been putting off learning photo editing for the longest time - it just seemed so complicated! However, Picasa makes it pretty foolproof, so thank you Google!
On to the haul: It felt like a disappointing week, but when I look back, I guess I didn't do so bad.
First, I stopped at my favorite vintage shop and got these goodies:
The hinged box is in perfect condition, and with a quick coat of white paint, it will sell really fast in my booth. The Holly Hobbie crewel work was irresistible! I can almost never walk away from needlework, and this one was too sweet. The striped cashmere scarf and cable knit sweater are for recycled sweater vases that I want to make. I've seen them all over blogland and can't recall where I saw them first, but By Stephanie Lynn had a great post quite a while ago on these here.
I also found this adorable original artwork:
It is listed in my shop.
I haven't decided if I should keep this Otagiri Victorian house mug. It was in new condition, and I think it would look so cute holding my pens. But I have so many vintage mugs that are too cute for words that I may need an intervention!
Pretty Ceramic Yellow Rose Box
So, all in all not bad, but I'm really looking forward to spring, when vintage season really hits full swing!
