Bags, and Cars, and Photos

This and that post today:
 I'm making gift bags for the shop now.
Just for my customers when they need one for a gift.
I just made this one a few days ago...
'Love the soft colors.
(The graphic is from The Feathered Nest)
Be sure to check out all the sweet graphics Dawn shares.
They sold the day I made them, and
the lady wants more.  so fun!!

No idea why I bought them.
I pretty much just buy what catches my eye.

These cars are handmade, and so clever how he used nuts and bolts and washers.
 This red one is a very thin metal. Not sure how it was made, or where.
And just above it to the right is an old cast iron car. 

This is my greatest treasure find this week.
This old album and pics were brought in by one of my customers.
It is what is left from the old album, and not anyone who knows who they are,
so I was able to purchase them from her.
(moral of that story is, label your pics!!)
She had no clue if they were family or who they were.

Here is the album.
It has seen better days, but would make a great project piece.
(I forgot to take a pic of the inside. It has all the little cardboard slots for the pics.)

Five of the pics are tintypes. 
My friend came into the store and I asked if she knew anything about them.
All she knew was they were about $35 a piece when she wanted to buy some!
Wow! Blew my mind. 
(at $8.00 each I'm sure my dealer friends will be scooping those up)

all for today.
be blessed
(these are some parties going on today)
