BIG Thanks.. and Back to The Craft

First, Just Thanks!
Thanks to all my friends who left encouraging messages and thanks to all the new people who stopped by and left encouraging messages.. ( It was so great to go see what everyone is up to.. Beautiful Blogs all different and great....) I really loved seeing what different people picked up on in the post. And Selena's offer to advise?? How cool and generous is that??

I am practicing to be in the $99.00 Thrift Challenge she has posted on her site as well...



Here was a trial run:


$15.00 (and there is cute dress, so short that is really just a shirt, that I was so excited to wear I put it in the wash before the photo.. )(duh..)

And for the actual craft: Here is a bag I made from a previous thrift score of a lovely vintage curtain.. Very Scarlett O' Hara..
It is an Amy Butler pattern I used before I just LOVE it.. I have no need for this bag but it called out to be made..




Anyway.. Thanks again to all.. I have to go to work.. 2 days left..

Yee Haww!!!

The green dominoes are too cool. Are they wooden (I detect a hint of woodgrain in the photo).

Love the dominoes and typewriter thing (is it for short hand?).

Really enjoyed seeing all your lovely things too! I've added you to my fav's so I'll be checking in often. And love the challenge. TFS

The typewriter is a toy!! It needs some repair but is a really simple machine so I expect it can be done...
The dominoes are wood.. and I am looking forward to being the gloating bad sport winner in a competition really soon.

Hi BB, I would have emailed you had I the necessary skills to find your email address. But I'd love to know about how to make those things work. I did turn that armature around and try and stick it over the bulb, removing the harp first, also tried to jam those ends into the harp. Am I hopeless? Anyway.. I think my email shows up but it's rocketqltr@yahoo.com if it doesn't. See. soooo not hip.
