I had a great day today. Just hanging out with Mr. Biff. We ran a bunch
of errands and then, on the way home, stopped at our favourite recycle
depot/thrift store - "Skip City". Today, for a measly 5 bucks - I hit a veritable
jackpot of mercury glass! Check these out:
The blue reflection in the mercury glass is "me" in my
new blue sundress! Please ignore the doorknob - not exactly
a well-staged photo!
The apothecary jar is over 12" tall - it's gorgeous!
Bonus - in the bottom of the apothecary jar!
There was a young girl looking at these two pieces but I mentally
willed her to put them down - which she did because as she said to her
mom "there's yucky stuff inside"! So I admit, I did pick them up gingerly
only to discover that the "yucky stuff" was melted candle wax!
I also got this funky shirt I am going to use as a seat cover on a chair and a
huge chunk of this fabric, along with the vintage frame.....yes, all for FIVE
dollars.....can I get a "hell yeah!"
Mr. Biff brought home this lovely little chair the other day too. I have the
perfect little desk/table to go with it. They'll make a great set for a little
girl's or boy's room - depending on the colour I choose!
I've got a few other cool things to show you but I don't want to get you
over-excited so we will pace ourselves.......stay tuned!
