My Vintage Finds Today

My plan for today was just to go to the Orange Show Fair Grounds in San Bernardino where there is weekly swap meet. I figured I would find a few odds and ends, but never did I think I was going to score as big as I did! For me, a really great find is lots of goodies at a REALLY good price. May I stress REALLY GOOD PRICE! Everything I found today was very nice but I think what blew me away was the amount of things I found at one place. Talk about the trill of the was on!

I found all of these beauties at one booth, and I will tell you that this picture does no truly show the amount of baubles that are really in this pedestal dish.

This is my other lovely treasure for the day. It's a beautiful Mother-of-Pearl rosary that just would not leave my hand. It's very delicate, and dainty.

Okay! So, everything here I just had to have too, and the wheels in my head were turning with all the ideas of what I will do with these. The pink clip-on's are absolutely stunning and I have big plans for them.

Last but not lease I came across a few vintage buttons and millinery items. So, i guess I picked up a little bit of everything today. I could hardly wait to get home to share my treats with all of you. Hope you all enjoy this!

My Vintage Valentine

My Vintage Valentine was held a Andrea Villarreal's house. It was a day of great food and crafting with friends. Andrea came up with "My Vintage Valentine Event" and asked me, Denise Hahn, and Jennifer Priest to teach what each of us loves to do most. It was a fantastic day starting off with the most fabulous food as always from Andrea. Denise began teaching us her soldered heart necklace, which was super cute and fun to learn. Then Jennifer tough us the prettiest Valentine scrapbook ever, and I followed with my velvet charm bracelet.  We all had a great time and I'm still thinking about all of the great food we had. I myself am looking forward to the next crafting event. Please enjoy the pictures from that day below!

Jar of hearts
We all made a heart for the heart swap, and we all took home a jar full of hearts. They were all so pretty and no two were alike.
