Yay! Congratulations to my sister in law & her husband on their first baby son, Xavier. He is my 10th nephew or niece. He is so handsome! Here I am holding him for the first time. I had to unwrap him and see his little feet.
Yesterday was such a great day. I started out the day visiting with my mom for her birthday and then I went to the Antique Mall for a stock up on my swap gifts and antique beauties to use in projects for Etsy & Ruby Begonia's creations. Here is how some of the booths are looking.
I love coming to visit this booth b/c she uses these clip art tags
If I could, I would start a collection of vintage hats and headpieces. They are usually so delicate and the texture is really nothing like what they make now.
& Here is what I came home with. More than what I had planned but when it's there you have to grab it b/c you know it won't be there later.
I think one of the biggest finds of the day for me was this bolt of Antique rose lace. The booth owner was arranging her booth and she was the daughter of whose lace this was. She said her mother was a home econoics teacher in the 1960s and she would buy bolts of fabric and lace for her class to use. It is just a ton of lace! I love it!
Here is the rainbow of jewels I bought to use on my Trim tags. Some of them I wouldn't have chosen by themselves but they came in a goodie jar.
These post cards are to make large tags, Greeting Cards and Christmas ornaments.
