While DD and I had a dig around in some old stuff this weekend we came across some real treasures amongst the trash. A great find was some beautiful depression glass items.
The rose pattern on this medium bowl is beautiful and it was a bargain from Life Line at $5.
This one, while not as cheap, was much bigger!
I have been chasing some green pieces for a while now and came upon these beauties.
It is still possible to find these beautiful pieces around the place really cheap, but not often now. I don't mind paying a fair price though and love using them when friends drop round for tea!
It wasn't all trash and treasure hunting, I did do a little stitching on the weekend as well and finished off my "Preston Bag" by Dawn Hay. Of course while we were out and about we did happen across a craft shop and I finally found a piece of green fabric I liked enough to make up the bag. If you like the bag you can get the pattern here!
I still have a couple of little buttons to stitch on to the pockets, and when I stop being lazy I will get the jar down and dig out a couple.
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
