I got this set of matching American Tourister luggage. I was just going to get the cosmetic case but then I saw the big one and I was a goner. Plus, the cosmetic case included a mirror in a matching snap case. (The white spot on the big one is a camera issue.)
I got "The Bell Jar", "Walden", "The Odyssey" and a flower pressing kit:
I got a set of pink plastic coffee cups and a couple of blue ones from a different set. I was going to pass on them but I can remember my parents having some yellow ones when I was a kid so I had to get them...nostalgia you know...
I got this neato shadow box clock that I'm going to make up new somehow:
But the real treats were the two sets of salt and pepper shakers inside that they didn't charge me extra for!
Now, the whole reason I went in there was to try and find a vintage-y looking handkerchief for a project but all I found were these:
I need one for a project I started last night. Yesterday I found a clearance 9x12 canvas at Hobby Lobby for $2. It was ripped a little so I bought it and then decoupaged it with a piece of patterned paper I tore into pieces:
I'm thinking of using two of these old photos that I bought a while back on this canvas. (Some of you might remember when I originally posted about these):
So we'll see what I can come up with...hmmm....
