Here we have the purse made from three upholstery fabric samples….is it just me or did it turn out perfect!?…btw..in the picture..the purse is a bit lopsided, this is not a construction fault, just how the purse was laid out and the angle of the photo
And here we have three books from 1940-1950 all acquired for 25 cents….yes..all three for a quarter….not each….for all….someone had tied them up with ribbon and some kind of ugly fall decor on the top….it was ugly and dusty..the spines on two are rather….messed up..one missing all together and the top missing from one, the back cover of the middle book is missing, but the Shirley Temple book and the Eight Cousins are in OK condition…for a quarter I figured why not? least I can get some enjoyment from them..I have read Eight Cousins by Louisa May Alcott..just last week in fact..its a pretty good book….And I cant wait to read Rose in Bloom, which comes right after it.
Also bought from the sale I got the three older books from was this adorable marionette….for….oh my gosh….a quarter….what were they thinking!? the only thing wrong with him was one of his strings had slipped out of the little cross piece at the top..a problem I fixed in about 15 minutes, along with shortening the string connected to his head…. So..those were today’s wonderfully fun finds…..next I will give you the recipe for the yummy yummy easy as pie cookies…
