Thrifting Frenzy


Never-been-worn Montgomery Ward shoes......

$4.98 & $3.98

Mary Janes for me.  Loafers for the booth.

*   *   *   * 

A vintage "Positive Attitude" dress that fits perfectly....

$3.98

But I'm not sure how I feel about the colors, 
so I'm leaning toward putting it in the booth.

*   *   *   *

Randomness.........


*   *   *   *

I bought these only for the frames......

$1.98 each

But now I think I like them.  
Anyone know if they are paint by number?

*   *   *   *

Who doesn't love round frames.......

$0.99 each

I will probably keep these.  
I'm thinking they would be good for DIY silhouettes?

*   *   *   * 

And parting with every single one may prove to be impossible.....

 $10.00 for all three

Do I realllly need an old mailbox?   Probably not.

Do I realllly want to keep one?  Of course.




Linking up with Her Library Adventures.

  4. There is a website http://www.paintbynumbermuseum.com/. I put in "cactus" in the search and found your painting so it is definitely paint by number. It is called "Painted Desert" and came in a Craft Master kit of 3 paintings. I also found the geisha girl. It is a Picture Craft Original called "Geisha Girl". I didn't look up the rest but I would guess they are PBNs too. Fun website!
