State Fair

Hey, how was your weekend? If you stopped by on Saturday you might have noticed that I was planning a day of treasure hunting. It was a lot of fun! Found some new places, went to a couple thrift shops and scored some cool things in which I'll show you after my scrapbook page share.


These photos are from the N.C. State Fair that hubby and I went to last month. I used a new digital kit 'Be Happy'by Hazel Olive Designs. These vintage animal cards are perfect for my theme!


I just got this twine/jute from Papertrey Ink. It's fabulous! It's just the right thickness. I've had some in the past that's just to thick and hard to work with!


I added a few die cuts and stitching to the page. I like the country feel and the way it turned out. A pretty simple one that I enjoyed creating....just love paper crafts! :)

Okay, if you like thrift shopping and collecting vintage items and antiques, keep reading. If that's not your cup of tea, go ahead and continue on to the next blog. ;)


Have you been to your local thrift shop recently? It's amazing what you can find! These places are always hit or miss and worth some chuckles! Audrey and I had a great time visiting two Goodwill locations and scored some awesome things like this apple jar for $4.99. It looks rather tiny in this photo but it's actually about 7-8 inches tall. It's a great piece to display during autumn when apples are plentiful!


I found a set of these snowflake cookie/snack trays with cups. Each tray was $1.49 and each cup was .29! Pretty cool find! I will have to serve some tea and cookies with this set next month!


Now this was my best score! It's a Lenox salt and pepper set with leaf dish...so pretty and detailed. It's brand new, was in the box unopened with a Macy's bar code on the bottom. Just $2.99! Sweet! I adore the detail and happy glow on Santa's face!

Well, I found a few other goodies at the antique stores we visited, but I'll share those items another day so I don't keep you too long or bore you to tears with dozens of photos! ;) I'm so happy you dropped by! I hope you too had a great weekend. I'll try and do some blog hopping so I can see what all you have been up to and see if you have some crafty shares to inspire my crafting for today! Until tomorrow, have yourself a great Monday! :)

Hi Kathy! I don't remember if I've ever visited your blog before... but seeing it now, I'm in love with your soft, simple style! Thank you for sharing all your lovely creations. Shabby is my idea too. And as to your thrift store finds, I found some really similar jars recently ... I posted about it a couple days ago :) Nice coincidence!
