Got WOWS?

WOW, look what I found at the Thrift Store yesterday (Thursday)!

This is a dress I bought with pinks and oranges and glittery beads on it

oooooooooh, I'm going to cut this up and use it for projects



and look at this lace blouse . . . for less than $6.00! I'm going to cut the lace away from the lining to also use in projects


I received this box in the mail at home . . .

What's IN the box, you ask? . . .

Oooooooh, all sorts of goodies from my 2008 OWOH BFF in Ohio, Mary Ann *smiles*.


But WAIT, is that all that's in that big, heavy, Flat Rate Priority Mail box????? Sure isn't! THESE were in there as WELL!

I LOVE old, dirty, beat up, vintage boxes!

And THIS is what was IN those boxes . . .

vintage player piano music rolls! Now you see why the title of this post is "Got WOWS?"!

ooooooooooooooh, the possibilities!

Then I opened up another box from Susan at Fully Flummoxed.
Look at all of this fabulous ephemera! There's vintage calendar pages with written notes, fibers, a pair of spectacles, wooden hands, and MORE . . .

And this box . . . a black box marked "Blues". Wanna see what's inside?

Now if this isn't the best for Black History Month, I don't know what IS! . . .







Thank you Thrift Store, Mary Ann and Susan! :)
