Yesterday was a typical day for me. After writing my blog post and listing something in my Etsy shop, I spent the entire afternoon going through a big box of vintage ephemera that has just been hanging out in my closet. I've been kind of hoping maybe it would just disappear, but no such luck. So I pulled out a bunch of old Hollywood photos from the 1940s and some other prints, put each one in a plastic sleeve and priced them all for my booth. It is amazing how that can take the entire afternoon.
Then I spent the next hour going through my vintage fabrics. I really need to monitor what is going on in my closets. How could I possibly have so much? I did find this old tea towel and I am going to pair it up with this fabric I found at the thrift store the other day. You'll have to wait to see it when it is completed.
After that it was on to this old flatware box. No, it hasn't been mingling in the closet with those other things. It was relegated to the garage for the last few months. I think the stuff in the closet is doing enough multiplying without throwing anything else in there.
It is really beat up , but I knew I didn't want it for flatware and it was only $3.00 at auction so I couldn't pass it up.
The first thing I had to do was pull out the old velvet lining. What did they use for glue back then? I may or may not have asbestos poisoning now.
Well that's as far as I got on that little project. Some people take weeks remodelling an entire room. It takes me that long to remodel a box. SIGH!!!
So now that you know just how exciting yesterday was, I guess I better get busy on today. Maybe I'll get real adventurous and actually get out of my jammies.
