With my necessary shopping just about wrapped up and tomorrow being the the last day before Christmas break for the kiddos I was hoping to check out the thrift stores for goodies.
I was stunned to find a bag angel hair spun glass! I don't know the reason but I can't find this new anywhere, I have looked for years. Add to that a couple of older glass ornaments...the color is just starting to age & craze. Finally some fascinating old Christmas cards with copper pressed inserts. I overhead someone say all Christmas items were 75% off, my total today 80 cents!
Last week I stopped in at at St. Teresa Textile shop in Ohio, they have the most eclectic fabrics, beads and notions. I picked up some furnace glass and these heart shaped sterling silver findings. I have no idea what I'll use them for yet, but I couldn't leave without them.
Last but not least today I found a tattered ornament that looked like rolled sheet music hot glued together. When I opened them up I was surprised to see that they were actually the whole music sheet in miniature. The glue caused a bit of damage as I unrolled them but I still find them charming. Feel free to save these images if you think you can use them too.
I did get to try out the 8 point star template, it doesn't provide as much depth as the five point star but it's still pretty with glitter added.
