I found this pretty Arthur Court signed bamboo and frog dish. It was only $1.50.
I also found these French books for $0.25 each. Why would I need books about Paris? Cause I'm going! I'm taking a trip to Europe next week, visiting London and Paris.
Which brings me to the metamorphosis section.
I have been looking for a travel bag/purse. Something that can be slung across the body - I plan on going to as many Paris flea markets as possible, and have been warned about pickpockets! I found this cute little bag at TJ Maxx for $7. Pretty good deal, most of the ones I had previously seen had been upwards of $40. I was not crazy about the plastic faux croc pockets on front. They don't look too bad in this picture, but they looked so plastic and cheap up close.
So I took a couple of scraps of a gray vintage fabric, I cut out a little stencil (it is suppose to look somewhat like a cherry blossom). I used some white fabric paint for the stencil.
I then used a combination of spray adhesive and a glue gun to attach the fabric to the plastic pockets, and tucked everything in. It seems to have stuck quite well. Hopefully it will make it to Europe and back!
