rummaging through stuff, you never know what treasures you might find!
I was in search of finding a book I could use to alter for Book-Of-Days 2012.
I had a few already laying around in my studio, but for this art journal project
I wanted a larger size.
(honestly...I need to get busy, and caught up with the everyone else who has joined this project.)
I am very excited and eager to get playing with my pages...
so I thought, a trip to the thrift store would be the perfect place to find a book.
Plus, it is so much fun!
I also, gathered these extra treasures right up into my cart.
Van Gogh - coffee mug
(what fun it will be, drinking my morning coffee out of this cup!)
set of 12 cards - Stylis *75 cents
Tag in a Bag set of 12 (really cute) *25 cents each
(I can use the cards to say "hello" to my artsy friends!)
vintage hangers (2) *75 cents each
(been searching for these for some time)
I was super excited about finding these!
(deck of "fortune telling cards")
Perfect for my art journaling!
These darling tea cups! $1.45 each
(way too sweet to pass up!)
** Total $7.15 **
Almost forgot... yes I did find a book to alter!
I will be working on that today in my art studio.
Will post pictures very soon...

I need some good thrift store therapy. All the ones we have around here are the pits. They just have junk....and I mean the kind that no one wants! I miss a really good thrift store. I can always find lots of goodies.
Great finds! I love thrifting too!ReplyDelete
