Vintage hankies ~
I lucked out at an auction quite a few years ago. When we lived in Nebraska I tried to make it to Central City, NE once a month for an auction. I LOVED the almost 3 hour drive from my house - it was my monthly day away to go and do something I've always loved to do! My parents used to take us to auctions when my sisters and I were younger and I have always loved the atmosphere and excitement of auctions.
I got this box for $10.00 and it was full of all type of linens - mostly stained but they all cleaned up nicely. There were about 6 vintage aprons and some old cookbooks - alot of which were just notebooks with handwritten recipes in them or newspaper clippings of recipes but dating from the early 1900's and I love things like that. In the bottom of the box was a ziploc bag FULL of beautiful, dainty hankies. I LOVE these two heART hankies and wanted to share them with you. They are too cute to ever think someone would blow their nose in them - YUK! I think I might get a few of them framed between two panes of glass and display them all the time. Aren't they pretty?
Not forgotten ~
Well, my camera card still work work in my Dell printer but thankfully I have an HP all-in-one that I'm sure if very outdated since I got it in 2002 but it will take my camera card! Yippee!
So, I downloaded the pics on there and used one of those stick things to copy the pictures and brought them to this computer ~ where there is a will there is a way!
So, here are some pics from some classes that I wasn't able to share with you. I took my camera with me to the Apron class (we painted hydrangeas) and completely forgot to take photos but I did manage to get one of Alice in hers. I have a couple more that need to be transferred and I'll share those with you soon.
Terry and her Rose plate
Charlie and her Cabbage Rose plate ~ glass painting
This was her first class and she did an amazing job!
Terry and her Cabbage Rose glass Plate ~ gorgeous!
PLUS, a shirt that she painted last summer ~ she entered it into a contest through PLAID ~ I hope you win girlfriend!
Alice and her hydrangea apron ~ It turned out so pretty that I'd be afraid to wear it in the kitchen ~ I'd hate for you to get anything on it.
Plaid has come out with new FABRIC paint. It's awesome! It's very soft to the touch - it doesn't crack and peel like the old 80's version. The coverage is pretty good and goes on better when the fabric is taut. Here is a way to de-code PLAID paints. They were smart and put indicators on the top of their paint bottles ~ A t-shirt for their fabric paint, an "E" for their enamel (glass & ceramic paint), a birdhouse for their outdoor paints and on their acrylics I love how they put the color dot on top - it helps with the way my paints are loaded. Some of you have asked about my paint ~ so I'll take a picture and show you how I store it.
Okay, now that you are completely bored to tears -have a great day!
