Fun New Stuff and ANOTHER Give Away

So your thinking... Why is she posting pictures of vintage silver lids? Well have you ever picked up something that your mind said "these are lids" but your "creative mind" said, "two of them, oh yea... they can be used as coat hangers or hangers for anything!"

Can you see it? I am leaving them as is and finding a place to hang them near my front door. They are not your typical coat hangers, but that is why I like them so much.

If you follow my blog you know we recently moved.. Well everyone should take an old momento from their old place.. so I took the address.. they were putting up a new one, and it was going to be tossed so my old address has a "new home" in the kitchen. It reminds me that change is good.

I had to show you this cool clock.. It is not vintage.. but made to look this way.. Got it at T.J. Maxx for $12.00. What a deal! It too will be going in my kitchen.. Starting to get a theme in there... hmmmmm

These will soon be my new pillows for my living room..

This is a vintage fabric I picked up early spring at a flea market.. Love the birds and colors!

A few new purses, will be in the etsy store in the moring.... $15.00

Amy Butler Fabric.. These bags are great to grab and go around town.. you can stick a ton of things in there. I love the one I carry.

And yes, more of my addiction fabric.. Jennifer Paganelli's fabric..If there is a support group for her fabric line, I will be the first to sign up!

On a recent run to a nearby antique mall.. I found something like this.. The gal wanted almost $50.00 for it and of coarse I said, "I can make that" and I did.. These are vintage word flash cards. They are simple, but unique and are in my etsy store now for $20.00 framed.. What neat gift idea. Perfect daily inspirtation for you or a dear friend.

My Favorite that I did today..this patchwork window. WOW I love the colors.. and I have a serious addiction to old windows and doors too. All done up with Amy Butler Fabric.. Another fabirc lover of mine.. This is in my etsy shop for $55.00 and I will be doing lots more.. Hope you like it.

So the Give Away you ask? Well I am giving away one framed vintage flash card saying.. I will even let you pick the saying once you win.. So I will custom make it for you!

All you have to do is just leave me a comment, with your email address and the drawing will be Sunday November 1st, at 8:00 pm. I love doing give aways.. spread the word, post it on your blog, let me know you did it and you will be entered twice, and if you win.. then you will get a extra special surprise with your gift!

Have a great creative week!
