Recent finds

Three big books of old sheet music to make paper flowers with.

A set of gold,soon to be white scalloped edge dessert cup looking dishes ~ not really sure what they were used for, but we have a vision of what they could become. Check back, we will post the finished project soon...
A few adorable cards.
We though the old patterns would work great for wrapping our goodies in that we sell on etsy, here and here. Notice the one on the top, the one with the striped dress. Totally 80's! Brings back some memories!
