More Projects....

Hi Sweet Bloggerettes!!  Here's a little project that I've been working on.  Little glass containers filled with sea salt then embellished with ribbons, lace, bits of this and that and tags.
I think I'll put these in my booth at Miss Minnie's and see what happens.

Playing around with another burlap runner with a Paris image.
This one is going in my etsy shop.
I am planning to hit the thrift stores tomorrow.  I have a favorite little place that always has good stuff.  I just know there is a real treasure waiting just for me.
Happy thrifting and bring home something to show me.

I WISH I could hit a thrift store tomorrow! After the day job, it's off to get wallpaper books for me to bring some samples to a client on Saturday morning. At least I'm going to Target after that to return/pick up some things I need, so maybe I'll find something on clearance. I bet you found something great, Sissie!

Love the jars ~ I like the shells on top and the mermaid tag. They work so well together. Another beautiful table runner!
