VALENTINE GOODIES TO CREATE WITH

I went shopping at some local junk shops.
These silk flowers I purchase at the local re-store, you know, one of those junk stores where one never knows what they may find in there.
  I ended up with 48 or so for $2.50 how marvelous indeed!


I then moved on to Staples where I had some colored printing done.  For $1.00 per colored page on glossy paper I can't print at home for that price.  So I load up my flash stick and off I go.


I purchased these buttons actually on a different day while in JoAnne's, this sale was 50% off, I do love a sale.  I thought these might be good for Valentine work and Marie Antoinette work.


 This paper pad was also 50% off, love the colors.




I just could not resist these little glass owls, don't know what I will do with them if anything, I do hoard some things you know..


The ribbon on the left I got at The Christmas Tree shop for 80% off, thought it could be used for Valentines day, what do you think?


This sugar pot and lamb I purchased at the re-store .50 each.  I think I will make a pin cushion out of the pot.


These next two images are from a Vintage book I purchased for .50, full of images like these to use.
I tried to take a photo of the book, too much glare from the cover.  
You will probably be seeing some of this in some of my upcoming work.

Thanks for stopping by.
