Farm Chicks Goodies

Just a few (very few) of the goodies I bought at the Farm Chicks Show June 2-3 in Spokane, WA.

I have a 'thing' for picture frames.  This one will be hung in the living room with the plate/mirror in it along with another small rectangular mirror.

Detail on the picture frame.  Kind of art nouveau-ish don't you think?

Sorry for the bad picture here.  (I had to use the flash.) This is the set of plates going in the frame.  There are three layers of china plates and then the small round mirror.  The women selling these had the cutest booth and so many beautiful combinations of these.  I could have bought several.

A small 1930s table cloth that is so sweet!

A cute little velvet purse in my favorite colors.  Couldn't leave that there!

I'm a nut for vintage needlework so had to buy this old baby bib.

and this long table runner.

I also purchased 2 old books with great binding and graphics on the covers.
And the letter 'M' which I decided stands for 'Me'.  It's made from a book. 
And a bakelite tray with a bird graphic and leaves in it.  It's hard to see in the picture. 

Then of course I found oodles of bits and pieces to be used in my mixed media wall hangings.  This was the show of shows for me!  I hope to be a vendor there next year.
I can't imagine what fun that would be.  

Next post I'll show you my rummage sale chair!  Coming soon!

xo, Karen
