A Few Finds

Last week when I was at the thrift store, I had noticed a pair of jazz shoes that fit Layla. I almost got them, but didnt. She started her Jazz/Acro class last week, so I decided if they were still there I was getting them. So we made a quick stop to the thrift store. I picked up a few things for my Sweet & Sinister Swap partner, Sue, also!

I picked up this old screwdriver for Mike.

Some pink rick-rack.

Here are the jazz shoes! They'll work for now! Any tips on cleaning these?

I also found this old Konica camera. There is a name, address & phone number (Canadian) scratched in to the bottom. I thought that was pretty neat. I belive this camera is from the 60s.

This cute little house will get painted white.

This didnt come from the thrift, but it was FREE! Mike brought it home from a Bennigan's that he and a friend were gutting. We also got some metal shelves and some brass bars. I didnt get a chance to take a picture though. This picture will probably go, but the mat & frame are nice. The frame needs a good cleaning & some paint. It was drilled to the wall so it has two holes, and it's got soot on it from when this place caught on fire. Its been sitting empty for awhile, and apparently everything was left in it.

It's a busy week for us! Soccer started this week, dance last week, and Blake's birthday party is this weekend! I've decided to make decorate visors instead of t-shirts. My next post will be about the party.

Also, I'm going to be hosting a Free Paint Party! Monday, September 28! Please spread the word! I'm going to attempt to make a button. This was based on the Glidden paint we got, but it could be anything! I want to see what you've done with your free paint :)

I'm adding this to Today's Thrifty Treasures at Rhoda's Southern Hospitality and the Goodwill Finds party over at the Dalomba Days! Check out what everyone else found!

These are great finds, and sounds like you have been keeping busy lately! I love the embroidery hoops and the vintage screwdriver. The camera looks so cool!!

Free is the best! How odd that the frame was screwed into the wall. I guess they didn't want it to go anywhere.

My favorite is the old screwdriver. Why don't they make them with wood anymore?

Happy weekend!

I don't know if this is the greatest way to clean leather shoes, but I wipe them off, clean them with a cloth then apply a small amount of petroleum jelly to them to condition. It hasn't ruined a pair of my shoes yet.

Love the pink ric-a-rack. What is it about ric-a-rack that makes you want to smile?
