Projects and Purchases

Good Day to all of my fabulous blogging friends. Hope you have all enjoyed a nice weekend. I had a busy one doing a show for my dog treat boutique (I forgot the camera!). Today I was able to relax a bit and get to the flea market. I found some fabulous rhinestone brooches that I'll be recreating into new jewelry pieces. I also found these fabulous metal frames. I'm thinking Christmas decor projects for these - either Christmas or some kind of old family photo project. Still playing with the ideas in my head. I hope to have some time this week to actually create! The vendor had a few more of these frames and now I'm wishing I had purchased them all! I almost always have some sort of buyers remorse after leaving the flea market - always remorse that I didn't buy more things or buy the one or two items that I was unsure of!

I'm a fan of Edgar Allan Poe so I was all over this piece by the very talented Kris Hurst. Perfect for Halloween. I keep moving him around as I want to be able to see him at all times. This piece really puts me in the spirit.


Kris also included some fun tickets and tags. I especially like the Halloween themes!

Oh, those little frames will be wonderful for all sorts of projects!
Can't wait to see what you do with them.

I don't think I've ever returned from a flea market without saying, "Rats, I should have bought that!". LOL

Thank you for your comment re: the swaps. I had several offers, so to be fair I decided to accept the first offer I received. But I'd still LOVE to do a swap with you a little later!!! =)

Wow! Fun flea market finds indeed! I always get the "I should haves" after flea markets! I am still sad my hubby talked me out of a huge pickle jar full of buttons for $30.00!! Do I really need more? :)
