Found Treasures

I found the most beautiful pink fabric top with rhinestones all over it...I cant amagine wearing it, must be why someone gave it to the goodwill ! lol. Cant you just see it on one of my pincushions!!

Have you seen those bags of jewlery at the thrift shops with a bunch of ugly looking jewelery...I have never purchased any, UNTIL yesterday...see that yellow flowery looking piece, It GRABBED me!! I had to have it!
Thats really about all that was in the bag...see the white rounds, I they were earrings, I tore off the backs, got out my enamel paints and wa-laa. The daisy is the other one like the one I put on yesterdays birdie pincushion, which I will be painting also..
I remembered to take a picture of these gold thingys...
Here are the items I got yesterday...What do you think...pretty good huh!
Here is my latest birdie. It's ceramic. I painted it with white first then added pink pearl paints, I added a pin to the back of that white earring that I painted. Oh what fun I have had the last couple of days! Dont forget to check out my ebay.

Hi, Laurie -
It's good to hear from you. I got a new computer and in the process I lost you! Now you're found and back in my Favorites. You sure found some wonderful things. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for leaving your sweet comment. No, I haven't been to Cottage Gate yet. We have had schedules and deadlines (holidays) when we've been down that way for the past few months. I hope to get down there soon and stop in there. I'll have to get back to you on a good place in Portland. I'll put my thinking cap on.

Hi Laurie,

Love your little goodies. I sure wish I could paint little pink roses like you do. Love them! Stop by my blog tomorrow for a little peaky at what I found at the antique show today.
