Tiny Treasures

 Garage sale season has begun here in the suburbs. I'm still purging my own excess from the move, so I don't need to bring much more  in. However, a couple of tiny treasures found their way here.  This sweet little oval oil painting of a Dutch windmill set me back 25cents.  Speaking of deals, see that potted orchid down there?  I've had it since January and it's still ticking...is this normal?



Anagrams game. Love the black and white letter tiles.


I think these are French prayer books. Pretty dusky purple covers.


I love handmade business cards. So I got my hands out and made some with tags I picked up at the thrift store and some scrapbook tape from Hobby in the Lobby (that's what we call it)



I also used a couple of pages from one of my favorite things which is this note pad from Sugarboo Designs. At the bottom of each page is a lovely quote which is perforated so you can tear it off and share it or use it in your own creative way.  I recently had dinner with a friend I don't get to see often enough and I think I will leave this laboratory vial with the quote and a feather inside in her mailbox for her.
