I got this old photo album for only $2.
Yep, it's a mess but what do you want for $2? Can you see the wood frame peeking out at the corners? I see a good project here. Under the velvet is a layer of batting and then straw. I'll just put new batting in and recover it. Simple, right? Ok, maybe not simple but I think it will be fun to try.
There were several photos inside and the beautiful paper frames. Most of them are torn but there are a couple that can be salvaged. The photos aren't the best but do I have to remind you it was only $2.00?
Then I found these pretty silk rosebuds with the black velvet ribbons. Maybe they adorned a beautiful Victorian dress once. They cried for me to take them home. Do you ever see these old rhinestone clips? It doesn't matter if they are dress clips or shoe clips, I buy them. It doesn't matter if they are tarnished and missing stones, I buy them. Why? It doesn't matter, I buy them! I love them! Nuff said!
Check out this scrap book!
Nothing special, right? I'm so glad I looked inside.
Just inside the cover were these little clipped piles of comic strips from the 1930s.
There is also this pile of GORGEOUS illustrations. I haven't even gotten to page one yet.
Look at the amazing color!
This one reminds me of my mom. She has short curly hair and is always reading a book. She also has lots of full bookshelves.
I have to research the artists that did these. They are all stunning! I only paid $5 for that book and it was well worth it!
This week I need to finish a quilt square, hem a shirt I made and finish a collage. I am way behind on my altered dictionary.
Have a great week!
