Antique Mall Goodies a Day Late

Well, I'm posting this a day later than I planned, but I ended up working later than I wanted to. Warning~there are a bunch of pics.

I bought these hog scrapers to use for make dos. The big one in the back is actually an old bobbin. It was a bargain at 50 cents.

 I love these little minis. The whisk broom is only 3 inches long. The little pottery pieces are just adorable.

A wooden bowl. I just can't seem to pass these up.

I love anything with an eagle on it, so when I saw this box of stamps, I had to have it. It's just a bonus that I can use the alphabet stamps for my craft projects.

A pottery crock with lid.

I love this little suitcase. I will use it as a display piece in my booth. I've never seen one like it before. It has 3 little wooden drawers that will be perfect for displaying my ornies for sale.

This Eagle crock has to be my favorite piece. I have never seen a crock with an Eagle on it before~so in the cart it went. There were also a couple of cute little acorn crocks, but I was too late to score them. They were in someone else's cart:( I have a bunch of Redwing crocks, but this is my first from another maker.

And at last is this bait box. I can't forget about the hubby (who loves to hunt & fish). It will go on our enclosed porch with his goodies.

I've been busy making coin purses for my upcoming shows. I have 40 done so far & am working on around 60 more. They are a big seller at my shows (inexpensive & cute) so I am making a bunch of them. I haven't made them in a couple of years. Last time I made them I had multiple orders to make (they make good gift card holders). I got sick of making them, so I stopped making them for a couple of years. I had purchased a ton of zippers, so I  finally used  them up. More stash gone!!

Before I finish up this post, I would like to show you where my pears from Brenda at The Rusty Thimble ended up. I put them in my blue bowl that is on my hoosier cabinet. I think I will add some filler to the bowl (I just need to run out & buy some).

Tomorrow is a day off, so I'll be working on finishing up my swap goodies for Donna. I'm really looking forward to this swap~so I really need to get the old hiney in gear.

I'm going to try to be good & stay off the computer!!

Enjoy the day~Becky
