Blue Monday, and a Little Treasure I Made.


How do you like these little pigs?
Now, I am not necessarily a big pig person,
but I could not pass these up!
They are about 5" tall salt and pepper shakers.
Toooo cute!! (sold)


A little blue enamel in the kitchen area.

And some beautiful bluish treasures.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I found a whole bag, I mean huge zip lock bag,
plum full, of these little spools.
They are about 1"x1/2".
Anyone know what they are for??
I have put them in little jars and bins.




Remember these? My thrift store find.
Half price made them 25 cents each!!
They are 3x4" leather, I mean real leather,
photo holders.
Brand new!
(They were marked $8.00 on the back.)



Here is a little something I made from one.
Sweet and simple.


Today I am participating in


ASPTL

Love the little pink albums. Yours is sweet. The little spools are thread samples included in new sewing machines. (I think) They usually toss in a ton of them in all colors. Not great quality thread, but in a pinch!!!!
Smiles,Pat

Wonderful collection of shots. I love the aqua-is it porcelain? And the thread spools, probably Pat is right, but I have a little sewing kit that came with about a dozen of them in different colors
