Mine! All Mine!!!
I spent a couple of hours and a few bucks...OK and a few more bucks...And more.
Spike was the recipient of a new, hand crocheted doggy ball. And a couple of new friends...One is an English bulldog puppy...Of course tradition demands that he be named "Winston". And the girly one will be(according to Tessie), Matilda....Don't ask me why...It was her choice.
The same lady that did the doggy ball also did some doilies. I have purchased from her before.
Her name is Laurie Miller Landa. She is an IGMA Artisan and her work is wonderful. I crochet that small, but it would take me ten times longer to do it than it does her. Her prices are very reasonable for the time it takes to do it.
That was priced lower than a lot of other places that carry it.
They won't all be used in the same setting. Tessie spotted those. Immediately invited Matilda to sit on the sofa. I think that Tessie likes her because she does what she's told. Unlike Spike.
The two slabs of stone were on another table. They will either be table tops or jewelry. Still to be determined...
Actually, this photo should be first. I always make a B line for the club garage sale table. If you get there early, there are lots of goodies to be had.
The wardrobe at the back was priced at a dollar, as was the kit for the director's chair. Now Tessie has two of those. Just what she needs... Now she won't have to zap her director's chair as much.
The two splits of tan leather were 1.50 each. One of the other tables was selling the same thing for 7.00! The silk was 50 cents. Not bad for a few minutes digging.
Anyway, a good time was had by all. Even the ones that stayed home and grabbed when I got out of the car. I am off to make plans for some of the pieces now....
See you tomorrow.
