rummage sale

i bought a few items at a rummage sale the other day. good deals! i bought this brown leather bookbag with a spot for a laptop for when i start graduate school at the end of the month for only $3. i'm so happy i found it because i was looking for something exactly like it : )

i then bought a few other things like this tote bag that i'm going to sew a pocket onto.a few vintage cups & mugs (i may sell some of them in my shop, i haven't decided yet)a leather coin purse for my coin purse collection.& these two picnic baskets! $3 only for the both of them! what a steal. it made my other news, i made some paper last saturday. it was so fun! i constructed a deckle & all. i'll be posting a tutorial on it soon : )& i am off today on a mini trip to visit wendy! fun times & adventures ahead.


dandelionkisses: hehe : ) i should show you how to make it when i visit.

i'm alive and dancing naked & thy lady: thanks! : )

pauline: yeah! i think i'm the first person i know too who likes it more too! i'm still surprised that i do. & i was thinking maybe of selling them....but i'm so bashful at my inexperienced sewing skills...we shall see though : )

amy: yes watch it & tell me what you think!
