I had some time to kill Tuesday afternoon before I picked up my granddaughter at her high school. I decided to stop at the Salvation Army store in Bridgewater. I spent $2.50 and I was happy with my new treasures
A wooden house that is 5 x 5 1/2 with little compartments, and a chimney. I thought this would be a great to alter. I don't know why it photographed with striped bands in each opening. I will post a photo later on of the little house after I have altered it, but for now, I need to finish up some swaps that I signed up for first.
Next, I hit the glass aisle, as I am always looking for pieces to use to create garden totems. I lucked out and found 3 pieces of solid blue glass. A large, heavy, rimmed plate, a blue vase that wasn't thin rimmed and tall, heavy glass. I have found that a lot of the blue glass pieces in yard sales or thrift stores, the blue is only painted on and chips off.
I was really happy when I scored these pieces. I have some blue and white vases that I found this past summer that I can use these pieces with.
