Altered Bottles / Laces and Goodies

I've been sleeping pretty well lately...until last night!! It all started with an invite...my husby invited me to go with him to Eugene, its an hour drive, and I would have the car to do whatever I wanted for 1 1/2 hours...and brunch at a very nice hotel...how could I pass it up..right! I only got to a fabulous quilt fabric store and an antique mall and the to-die-for art store before he called and said to pick him up...The photo up above are...fabric samples from an upholstery/gift shop
bottles from the Goodwill that I came home and immediately soldered the tops
I found this beautiful doily, pin. Then at the art store these metallic crayons, and the pens are for Monday when Stacey and I are taking our Fanciful Letter class
Look at these beautiful fabrics and laces. We then went to Ben Franklin where I got these LARGE glass pieces, cant wait to try those out...We went to Costco while down there and a couple of shops that we found as we were driving around...it was such a fun relaxing day. When I got home I worked on the bottles...oh yes, I found a couple more wooden things, I'll share them tomorrow...anyway...I didn't sleep at all last night...I was crafting ALL night long, my body may have been asleep, but my mind wasnt!! lol Never good to go shopping right after payday.lol

Your finds are awesome! I have some pens like that, too! I love that brand. I love the dual tip feature, as well.

Well, have fun making some goodies with the large glass rounds! I'm sure you'll come up with some fabulous things! :)
