Hope everyone had a great weekend. I am feeling refreshed and looking forward to another chaotic school term!
As I said in last weeks post, I have been filling some wholesale orders for stores lately so I thought I would share some of the new tags that I have sent them. I have just uploaded these to my madeit store and will upload some to my etsy store later in the week.
The first set of tags are hand cut from a vintage atlas and then hand stamped. Each set sells for $5.50. I love the sense of adventure these tags instill.
The second set of tags are hand cut from a vintage dictionary and hand stamped with fauna from the Webster's Dictionary range. Each set sells for $5.00. These tags remind me of the set of heavy dictionaries my mother owned (in two volumes) when we were growing up. I guess these days we just google the word?
Lastly these tags are just a bit of fun and are hand stamped onto recycled card. Each set sells for $4.50.
Now on to my fabulous Hard Rubbish find. It was HR collection in our area this week so my oldest daughter and I (miss 4) went out under the cover of darkness (due to the fact is was in my own suburb) to look for treasures - she loved it but we came back empty handed. Imagine my surprise the next day, after venturing a different way to the post office, when I came across this delicious old head board! Okay, it needs a clean up (looks like 100yr old cobwebs on it) and a definite recover ...... but with some TLC I think it will be perfect in my second daughter's room - yay, her scheme is starting to come together. It may take me some weeks before I get to this project, but I promise to post the after shot.
By the way, I got some very funny looks from the builders across the road who were watching me haul it into the back of my car ..... I could just hear them ..... has she no shame?!! This got me thinking ..... have any of you ever hunted for treasures in the HR in your own suburb (or am I the only embarrassing one)?
Hope your all having a great week. Michelle
p.s. I haven't forgotten about posting more images of my home - I'm just waiting for the calm on Thursday when daycare and pre-prep go back!
