I picked up some items at a few antique shops while my friend was here visiting for a few days.
First I wanted to share the carrots I made using a tutorial from Clare's Craftroom blog, you can visit her here thanks for sharing Clare.
I gave some to my Figgy and one to my friend Barb.
I know we are all done with Easter but I would like to give credit to those that share tutorials with all of us.
Now on to the finds.
At a shop called Junk and Disorderly I found this vintage magazine. I love the advertisments in here. I am thinking of using some of the food ads in a brown paperbag mini /journaling/receipe album. I think these would make good backgrounds on the pages of the album.
What ideas do you have?
Did you notice this magazine cost 5 cents?? (not 5 cents when I bought it, but once it cost that much)
If you follow my blog you may remember the cheese box I purchased (see this post) that has the wheat grass in it.
I found at Creative Habitat a package of this wheat grass to grow some of my own.
I plan on putting together one of the vintage picnic baskets I received for Christmas using some of this grass. Stay tuned for that.
What other ideas do you have for some of this wheat grass??
I found these fantastic vintage patterns. I just love the images on the fronts.
I think I may make a vintage inspired album using these images as background paper and tag making.
What ideas do you have for me??
I found this vintage dish towel. I am thinking of making a purse/bag out of this.
The back side I may use red burlap.
Do you think it would be strange to carry around a vintage dish towel calendar as a bag?? I love vintage dish towels.
I found this dress at the junk store. I thought the material was pretty. I tore apart the dress and ripped strips of material. I put into the washer and dryer to make the strips all distressed. I plan on stamping on the strips. Any other ideas?? Here is an advertisment from the magazine.
Well, that is all of my finds for this time.
I would love to hear any other ideas you may have for projects using my new treasures.
I am linking up to the following linky parties this week. Be sure to go on over and visit a few, lots of inspiration out there.

My comment just disappeared :( I'll try again! You found some amazing vintage treasures- I'm chuckling at the name of the store you went to. I'm sure my mom had similar patterns to the ones you found. I think you could frame some of the pictures/pages from the magazine and make a collection for your kitchen. Thanks for stopping by my blog- it's nice to 'meet you'! ~ Yvonne
