A sweet Strawberry Shortcake doll. As a general rule, I am not a fan of these crocheted dolls, but she is well done and has bloomers, a dress, an apron and a hat AND she was only 50¢. The little girl that I baby sat when I was 13 years old is having a little girl. When she was little her room was decorated in Strawberry Shortcake, so I always think of her when I see S.S. I picked up a vintage SS baby quilt last week, so I think these two things will go to her. She's a very well to do Pharmacist and lives in a gorgeous home, but I think she will enjoy this little bit of vintage goodness.
Project #1: Six oak frames that I will paint for the booth. One of those nice heavy handmade one in the center fell apart and I am just sick about it. They are very nice heavy frames. I think I will paint the other two bright red and add Arkansas Razorback word clouds in them. I got these all at one sale where I knew the lady, I have known her for about two years and I see her on a semi-weekly basis. But, when I started talking to her she said, "Do I know you?" Uh...... When she figured it out, she started telling me that I could have everything half price and then she gave me a big cardboard standee of an M&M NASCAR driver for The Bean. I guess she felt guilty. If her being guilty meant deals for me, then that's okey doke by me!
Project #2: Two old Jell-O molds to make into Christmas wreaths.
Project #3: Neat old baking pan to make into something that I haven't decided yet.
Project #4: Old strainer insert that will become the topper to a windchime.
Project #5: This big pile of old Learn to Paint/Draw books were 25¢ each. I had a book of rose paintings that I took apart and framed for the booth. These all have great drawings in them that I can frame too.
There were even book books of NUDES. Shock! I don't think I will be framing those.
These two will probably go on ebay.
(Although, I had HORRIBLE sales this week and I am not really excited to sell anything on there this summer.)
Also, not shown, Project #6: Two old School Dictionaries to turn into ephemeral bundles and Project #7: An old clipboard to paint with chalkboard paint and Project #8: a bright red vintage scrapbook that I plan to "Razorback" up somehow.
And, lastly, on little keeper for me.
Pink, pottery twenty five cents.
Need I say more?
Lots of projects on tap for me.
How about you?
