Studio Updates-

Monday Madness...
- Thrifting - Altering Old Book - Creating - Book Order - Crafting -
****
Over the weekend I was busy...
thrift shopping, yard sale searching, creating artful crafts, 
purchased a few magazines/with a coupon,
and 
received a book order form amazon.
Productive weekend indeed!
****

Let's get started...
Found these books at a yard sale
for free!
They just wanted to get rid of them, imagine that!
****
Rummaging through the thrift store, 
which is always super fun!
I came across these straw wreaths .25 each
These definitely can home with me.

Also...
found some muslin, cotton linen, and 
this beautiful black/white printed fabric.

I've got some great crafting ideas for all these treasures
stay tuned...
