Roomie Swap!

Finished up the two packages for the swap with my Silver Bella roomies.

Been really busy lately, working my tail off at CVS (6 days in a row this week) and trying to keep up with all my classes. I basically have no social life currently. Oh well...

Silver Sisters Stash Swap!

My packages for the Silver Sister Stash Swap are complete! Yay!

They turned out exactly how I wanted them too. Can't wait for everyone else's to start rolling in so I can get the final packages put together to send back to the gals! Natalea has already sent hers in and it is GORGEOUS!

Here are the tiniest sneak peeks I can offer of my swap packages! Don't want to give too much away!

So the craziest thing happened today...

I was scanning through the classifieds of the paper this morning planning out my yard sale/garage sale route, and I found one that said "crafts." I was hesitant because "crafts" usually mean just crap and I didn't want to drive 15+ mins. to come away empty handed. Well, I pulled up to this cute house and started perusing the goods. I saw the table filled with amazing craft stuff and was so happy that I had decided to come out to this sale. The owner and I were chatting and she mentioned that she sells ribbons, trims, vintage stuff and the like online. As I was picking out more goodies she ran into the house. When she came out she handed me her business card and you should have seen me squeal! It was Heather of Speckled Egg!!!

I had no idea that she lived in MA, much less only 15 minutes from my house. She must have thought I was a total kook. But we got on the topic of Silver Bella and she gave me a great deal on her stuff. I came home (and mounted all my fab ArtChix stamps) and decided that I needed more of her craft supplies. I drove all the way back out to her house (and brought a MooCard this time) to snag what I could. She had nothing but amazing things to say about Silver Bella and now I am even more hyped up for Nov. than I was before. Oh, if only she could come along too! :(
Here are some pics of my great deals at Heather's:

A box of over 50 dress forms!!! These may come in handy for my Silver Bella swap.

Cutest little monkeys on parade atop giraffes!

So pretty!

Hmm... Silver. Makes me excited for Nov. these days just hearing the word silver.

Well, today was so incredible and I hope to be getting together with Heather in the future.

Brimfield Antique Show

By far the craziest antique show I have ever been to. Great deals all over the place. I went on the opening day and on the closing day and spent quite a bit both days.

My mom with a display of beautiful garden statuaries.

Antique vendors as far as the eye can see for over a mile!

Bought this piece made from vintage materials at a cute vendor.

I can't wait to go back next year!!!
