Some People Are So Crafty!

This morning one of my co-workers showed me this tractor that her FIL made from an old sewing machine. I've seen tables made from the bases (I have one myself) but never knew what could be done with the actual machine. She's going to put it out in her flowerbed. So awesome!

Pretty Guestroom Curtains

I found these dreamy curtains online today from ABC Distributing for $16.95 a panel. I had been looking for pretty, feminine curtains for my guest/craft room and saw these. I have two windows to cover and I think are exactly what I have been looking for. I can't wait to get them!

My finds at First Monday Trade Days in Canton

One of the dealers at the flea market had a suitcase full of pretty vintage aprons. They had all been washed, starched, and pressed. I asked the lady who owned the booth how much they were and she said they were $3.00 each. I asked if she would sell me 7 for $20.00 and she did. I'm going to keep a couple of them and sell the rest in the booth. This bridge table tablecloth was only .50 cents. It has a very simple design on it, but I thought it was nice for the price. You don't see these very often. It's going in the booth. Cute cast iron creamy white bunny was $4.00. It's going in the booth. I stated in an earlier post that I pick up Christmas fabric when I find it and I found these VIP fabric pieces for .50 cents each. The red was 1/4 yard and the green was 1/2 yard. Can't wait until I have enough to start working on the quilt! These Leonard shakers were $3.00. They are large and fancy, and will be going into the booth. Vintage kitchen towels! The one on the top has a red crocheted border on the top and bottom and was in great condition. The towel on the bottom, in all it's anthropomorphic goodness, has a few stains but I think I can get them out. I'm keeping the anthro towel and the plain towel is going into the booth. I got these for .50 cents each. Cast iron mermaid in a robins egg blue was only $2.00. It's going into the booth next to the shell boxes. This dresser scarf and hanky were .50 each. Sets of cast iron rusty crusty keys. They were $3.00 per set, and I can get $8.00 per set for them in the booth. This cute rusty cast iron hanger was $5.00. It's booth bound too. Syrup pitcher was $2.00. Every time I put one of these in the booth it sells quickly. I'm in love with this valance! I don't know what I'm going to use it for, but I am keeping it for myself!
