The Treasure Hunters

We had a fun day out the other day...we had a little cash in our wallets so we decided to go out and do a bit of junkin' ! We went from junk place to junk place and filled the cart with cheap thrills....the boys ( Tristan and Elliot) got some fun Transformers...and I got some fun and funky stuff for my business. Some of the items I found were simply for my own office ( which will some day come true...uh I mean....will some day get cleaned up and painted and arranged the way I envision it in my head!) Other items will get used as components for jewelery etc. that I sell on (see links to the right). I enjoy using upcycled product in my designs (especially for jewelry) because it just feels right. It's also so much more of a challenge than working with all new stuff....which I get enough of at Grandiflora. I, more than anything love the thrill of the hunt...finding that special something hiding in a pile is a delicious feeling!!! Here are a few of the lovelies I discovered this last trip may think I'm crazy...but these cheap little treasures really bring me joy....

So, now you can see how happy getting out and doing a little treasure hunting can make me!!! (See below) Actually I was having Tristan help me take some pictures of myself earlier (which didn't turn out...I desperately needed a new profile picture for Facebook!) and so he was trying to be my master photographer here in the bathroom! Who knew you could look so good being photographed by a 5 year old boy while a 3 year old boy is clinging to your leg! Let alone in your very own bathroom! I am half blind in this picture by the way. I'm probably searching for my glasses or the cleaner to clean them with! This picture has made me think that I should try to bump up the appt. I need to go in and get fitted for contacts! I've forgotten how nice it is to have a glass-less face! Well, I'll have to work on that one...until then, I'll wear my glasses so I can keep on blogging. We're off to the local Fair tomorrow....lots of photo ops there! See ya soon!
