Friday brought the visit of our friend Rick B. who moved to California several years ago – and that meant dinner on the roof at El Azteco, where we shared our favorite topopo salad and cheese dip.
Saturday was serious junking and marketing day! (A bit done Friday, too!) You can’t beat this curtain valance for a dime (and in the package!). Before…
And after! Perfect colors!
I’m dying to take apart this necklace that was thrown in free and use in collage. Not a great photo, but you get the gist.
I loved this little manecki neko, the Japanese good luck cat you often see in businesses. It was a teapot with a missing lid. Now it’s a pen holder, but may be converted into a yarn/string dispenser!
Ball jars were fifty cents to a dollar!
And I loved the lace curtains – two long panels and a valance. I doubt they’ll be curtains – maybe a table cover or I could use them to wrap oddly shaped packages.
I found these dear cloths/liners at an estate sale and these cute booties. I want to interpret the pattern. Then I’ll stuff them with catnip for the Gypsy!
That estate sale also bought some fun recipe booklets and golden books – most were not in good shape, but I’m cutting them up for collage, so no big deal. Also found a great atlas (not pictured) – again, bad shape but glorious maps and good typography.
And the video “Hello, Dolly!” for fifty cents, which we enjoyed Saturday night!
Total junking expenditures: $10.00. Fun shopping and fun to come? Priceless!
Tomorrow…time with another old friend, and strawberry shortcake!
