More Goodies

I really felt like my camera was getting rusty so I have tried to have it out a lot more lately during the daylight hours, capturing things I want to share with you...

I am not going to get to do any thrifting or garage saling this weekend ( a dinner party and a birthday party are on the agenda for the next 2 days - which means house cleaning/shoving in the closet, birthday cake baking, gift wrapping/buying,& general people-are-coming-over mayhem will be the order of the day) so instead I thought I quench my thrifty thirst by showing off a few more goodies I have happened upon lately...

Wired paper sheet music garland. Have I died and gone to heaven? It has a Christmas song written on it and is the perfect shade of brown paper bags.
I cannot wait to find all kind of uses for it this year. I wish I could find tons more.
I think Cannon Falls made it years ago. May have to start an Ebay search for it....

Papers brought back by my sweet friend Becky . She found them in Derbyshire. Yes that Derbyshire...Oh, Mr. Darcy...
Becky also went here and got to see the Mr. Darcy bust that was used in the movie, which I am currently obsessed with. Great timing Becky!

Thrifted Large Pink Pom-Poms, what shall I do with them? They look just like little balls of cotton candy.

Vintage paper fringe. So yummy I could eat it with a fork. Found at The Junk Drawer on Etsy.
I bought it to use on some Gift Cones/Tussie Mussies for the shoppe, but it may have to live on something at my house...


  1. Can't wait to see what you do with it all :)

    I think I should make a date with etsy tonight, I just love that place ;)


  2. Love that sheet music paper garland! I have some like that except it is American flags.

  3. I love the ribbon. I really thought it was paper. I can’t wait to see what you do with it. I posted a reply to you on my blog. I really appreciate all your suggestions. Thank you so much.

  4. I love that garland, too...

  5. That sheet music garland is amazing! Yay you! xo-Mel

  6. I love the sheet paper garland. I am sure you will find a use for that.
    I also love the tissue fringe. That stuff is great. It has that vintage look. I also love your dress forms.

  9. Hey...I was doing a search for music garland and found this blog post. I grew up with that EXACT garland on my Christmas tree. I have been looking for more of it for years. Where did you get it? I can't find it anywhere.

    Thanks for any help you can give...


ok, really. tell me the truth... do these comments make me look fat?
