Hi Everyone, During the Labor Day weekend we took a trip and went to El Paso Texas to visit my Dad and sister and her son Zachary. I had a great time, especially because we found some treasures, here are my finds and I have included the mirrors I promised awhile back.
Some of you have asked me about the Match box swap, well I am not hosting it, Linda is hosting that, there is still room for 6 more so she says; so pop on over and visit her and sign up, there is still time come join the Christmas fun! Here is her blog address http://www.aswapforallseasons.blogspot.com/
This is the back of the dress form, it reads 14 and model 1955, my sister Cathy says it is a size 14 I say she is wrong because in this era I am a size 12 and there is no way this model is a 14, either that or I need to trim down. But I always wanted one of these dress forms I even gave her a name, I named her Bev. = short for Beverly, but I decided to change her name to Peggy-Sue, I think it sounds more hip and more of the 50"s. What do you think? This dress form was purchased at a small town in New Mexico we spent hours my sister and I going through stuff, I also got some linens and have washed them but have not ironed them, so I will post those later so you can view them.
My Sister Cathy her son Zachary and Carlos my son and myself went house hunting in this empty house and brought back with us this old knob, the ruler I bought at an antique store in New Mexico. The house hunting was some place called Socorro not sure, anyway we drove by empty old, old house dating from the 1800 that are empty, so we decided to go inside one and found this knob, my sister found an old sewing case, I forgot to take a pics of that, our kids found some hunting knives. It was nice but we got bitten by mosquito's wish we had more time to go into more homes but you are only allowed to pick one and get something you like.
Here are the Three (3) mirrors I painted during the summer. I am not sure where I will hang them, as soon as I find out I will let you know. Until next hunt keep in touch and will let you know more about my treasures or hunts. Hugs....
