Mixing Work with Pleasure!

My Saturday Estate Sale Finds
Little Boxes Filled with Creative Treasures

I have been working very hard, on these
two Escrows we have on going. But once I
finished meeting with my clients, I took a
bit of time to stop by a Local Garage Sale.
And I was glad I did!

Even though I was a late arrival there
was still treasures to be found.
The lady had been quite the crafter
and somewhat a hoarder I was told.
Then I remembered being here a
year or so ago.

And yes that time I had found some wonderful
Creative craft treasures, and here I am again the
ONE SALE I was fortunate to have time to visit,
The perfect Sale for crafty girls like us (:
A Stash of some darling Vintage Gift wrap
And Christmas and Easter Holiday Sweets
sweet little miniatures, velvet millinery leaves what Fun!

So needless to say I am so excited to get into
my Studio and start creating. Right now
I am working on these Sugar Pink
Treat cups Wanted to offer more in The Shop

I sure hope I can find some time this week to get my Creative side satisfied.
Now please don't get me wrong I am not complaining we are so thrilled to
have Real Estate Transactions , but life would be grand if I was independently
wealthy. I guess I better buy a lottery ticket each week. And when my numbers are
picked a Glitter Party at My House Everyones Invited!!!

A Glitter Party oh my goodness what a fun and creative idea! I'm just jealous I didnt think of it first!!!! Good thing I'm local!

I want to win the lottery too, minus all the taxes after. You should throw a glitter party anyway!

By the way Diane, I have to say that pink glitter cup is one of the cutest things i've ever seen, my heart literally skipped a beat.

What you must have had going through your box of goodies! Your treat cup is adorable but that Halloween raven...he is wayy cool!

Jane said...

Hi - Love all the little treasures you found at the sale...nothing better than to find things to create with!
I read that you live in Newbury Park....I used to live Simi Valley...we lived in Wood Ranch from 1998 to 2001 and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. One of our favorite places to eat was Sushi Oaks in Newbury was an almost every Friday night dinner for us. My next door neighbor here in Kansas City also moved from California...she lived in Newbury Park for years...small world.
I enjoyed reading your older posts too...I'm going to follow and see what else is in store.

Jeanne said...
