Yes, two posts in one day! Can you believe it? I am desperately avoiding the housework that needs to be done. I am not sure if I have told you, but I was laid off from my teaching job in January, as the university only got about 2/3 its normal quota of international students. I have taken up book buying for an online bookseller. I am not making any big money so far, but I figure I need to build up some inventory.
So, in my pursuit of used books, I have been in more thrift shops as usual, and I have come across a few inexpensive goodies that I just had to have.
The first photo is some various bits of vintage jewelry which I am intending to use to make some button rings. Some for Christmas presents, maybe some for Etsy (which I have semi-given-up-on). But mostly because I am desperate to do something crafty.
Here are some more of my recent finds to share with you:
More Vintage Jewelry
Tiny Vintage Locket with photos still in it. This is about 3/4 of an inch tall.
And last some vintage adding machine keys. These are actually not thrifted. The kids dropped one of Nick’s old adding machines, and it shattered, but I saved the keys (there are many more). I just love the color! Now, what to do with them? Any ideas?
