Thrifty Cool, and a Project

No, this vintage camera does not really work,
but isn't it cool??

And you would think the vintage suitcase it is on
was part of it, but it is not.
Just a good find that all went together.

Isn't it great??

(It is sold, and I did not get to even enjoy it long at the store!) =0/


Here is some foof for you lavender lovers.
A thrift store find.

Vintage radio cabinet at the store.

sweet little music box.
a thrifty find
(maybe I already showed this??)

My project:

from this little 3x4 fold out photo album
(.25 each at thrift store.
I bought bunches!)

to this.

simply glued decorative paper over left picture,
added lace, and the word Love printed off computer.
Glued the black ribbon down the middle of the lace.
(I used glue stick on all of it.)

Right side I glued pic printed off computer
and glued lace around edge.
So easy!!

I'm joining in with all these great Memes today.
Hope you will go check them out.

The old camera is really great. Love the radio cabinet. I love old radios and have a few of them. I want to show them on VTT but can't until I replace my bulb that burnt out in one where the dial lights up.

Holly said...

Love the camera!
The little album would make a great Valentine!

Angie @ The Country Chic Cottage said...

I always enjoy seeing old cameras and cases! The photo's they must have taken...wouldn't those photographers be amazed at today's digital cameras and the computer! I have quite a lot of old family pictures that were probably taken with a camera much like yours. That'll have to be a VTT post one of these days. Today is my first VTT and I have Head Vases to show and tell about. Hope you'll get by and see them. Enjoyed your post and the very clever photo album made into display!

What a neat camera! I found one for my son, and its like the one you have - and a Kodak brand with the accordion pleats! He uses it for decoration in his home. Gotta love those oldies!

Coloradolady said...

I remember these pink buys you found, so glad you showed a after photo...they turned out really cute!! Happy VTT!

Anne~Fiona and Twig said...

Wow, I need to head to that store, you've got some GREAT things! :-)

Oh, and thank you so much for your sweet words of encouragement on my blog about my art, it meant a lot!

Have a great weekend!

I knew your store would be way too far away to visit ... and it is. So sad because your stuff is so nice. I'd love to visit.

Lisa said...

Look at all your great stuff! I like the little photo frames! Well Done! The camera is wonderful. Oh to have a home big enough to sit that one out!!
Hugs, Lisa

Barbara Jean, I LOVE that camera. And it does look like it goes with the box. Clever. Wish I had seen it in your store!
Sorry I am so late. As it ended up, we did have a (6 hour) stint in the ER with my son. Praise God, all is ok. But, I am late in getting around to everyone this week. My apologies.
Sincere thanks for linking up to Tales from Bloggeritville Thrifty Thursday!
