Registration & some sales!

My first 'big' teaching gig is coming in June! When I say big, I mean Texas Big!
Our Cowgirl Supreme Cindy, has the registration page up & it's loaded with all of the information you've asked for.  I am so excited to spend a whole 3 days meeting, playing & creating with bloggy friends new & old. 
I feel like I'm the only person in blogland not in Round Top right now.  Oh, how I hate missing all of the fun & great shopping.  So I decided to have my own little 3 day junkin extravaganza. Begining with a day with the girls.

Charlene, Pat & that other goober is me!
Day 1 - Benbrook Antique Mall
Charlene & I cleaned out one booth loaded with church lady hats, lace & tatting.  I'm not sure how these made it past the hoarders in Lawernce!
This baby is loaded!
Why does this stuff make my heart race so?
This picture is not great, but the bag stopped me in my tracks!
The hand work is remarkable, ribbon, beading, lace - just wonderful.
These mother of pearl birds were my splurge of the day.
This was my best deal of the day $3!
Day 2 - Take me to the thrift!
$1 for 8 wooden & metal hangers.
Loved this old gardening catalog.
Day 3 - Spring is here, & so is the junk!
My official start to garage sale season Rocked! I hit some amazing sales, like this!  I don't know what the stuff on top of this silver pin is, feels like horse hair.
This old box of ribbon was .10. NO LIE! In fact my grand total for the day was $20.
Don't you love the little capsules these lock & keys are in?
I flipped when I saw these little velvet ring boxes.
Cool rocks, bones & I think....a tooth?!
3 journals filled with writing.  This one had old checks, church bulletins & clippings.
Love little boxes, this one will be filled up with 'prettie's for someone special.
Well, I think I burned my laptop up loading all these pics.  I'm off to feed the family because tomorrow is know what that means????? More garage sales!  Kidding.
Happy weekend friends.



Awesome! Really great "stuff". ~ Angela

OMG! I wish I could have gone with you, looks like you made a GREAT haul!


Beth Leintz said...

She shoots, she scores. (Maybe I've been listening to too much of hubby's basketball tournament).

You got some seriously good stuff- and that bag with the ribbons- to die for.

The church lady hat could get you a membership in the "hat ho" club.

Hi Lisa!
What yummy stuff you came home with. Love the church lady hats (that's so funny)! Lots of good little flowers and trims for other projects.
You really know how to shop for stuff. Don't you just love buying little boxes of stuff and going through it all and finding the unexpected!
