Vintage Score

I don't know what's gotten into me today but I've been super productive again! I started coating my latest round of coasters with the polyacrylic this morning - I'll need to do a second coat tomorrow and then let them dry before I can ship them out. The polyacrylic fumes are SO dangerous - I'm glad I have this area outside I can work at!

My garden is still doing well - I'm going to plant some bean bushes in the side of my yard since their growing so well in the pot. I'm also happy to see my mint and lavender seeds finally sprouting.

I was also able to squeeze a quick trip into the antique store before class this afternoon. I *scored*!! I got some adorable items (one already listed in my shop) but my favorite was a jar full of jewelry/jewelry parts. My heart literally started to race when I picked it up and began turning it around trying to peak inside. I adore taking some vintage costume piece and updating it with my own style. I had no clue how lucky this purchase was!

Here are some teaser pics - if you happen to see anything you'd like just let me know. I'll probably list about half the pieces as vintage items and take the other half and make them into something else.

Finally, yes, I did actually find this in my lil' jar-o-awesomeness

Agenda for the night: NOTHING! Veg out in front of the tv, take a bubble bath and hopefully watch the new South Park with that guy :)

Beautiful coasters! And what a find with that jewelry! I love getting a big bag of goodies at an auction or antique store and then dumping them out on the table at home and seeing what all treasures I got.
