~~Just a Tiny Sparkly Collection!~~
I love Fridays ~ my big day to go to town! I work at home on ebay Monday through Thursday but when Friday rolls around I ride the 35 miles to town with TZ, drop him off at work, & then head to my mom & dad's for breakfast & then off to the garage & estate sales with my mom. I look forward to this day all week long like so many of you do........to go in search of treasures! I never get tired of garage sale-ing & love the "thrill of the hunt", never knowing what lies ahead. My top priority is to shop for ebay - but of course I always find things I can't live without & little additions to collections. And after lunch I spend the afternoon shopping at all the thrift stores in town and there are so many good ones!
My little pin collection is one that I can always add "just one more" because they're so tiny & I also find them very cheap at garage sales. I've collected pins for years & just recently have found quite a few clear rhinestone pins that I wanted to put together in a special place ~~ I was very excited to find this pretty pink lacy fabric mannequin display & knew it would the Perfect Pink Pin Place!
The pins to the front on the mirror - the swan, pink bird, dog, heart ~ are pins I've had since I was a little girl....I wore the birthstone heart pin on my Easter dress in the 5th grade. The tiny petit point roses pin was made by my grandmother years & years ago ~ the blue "Lady" belonged to my aunt. And of course just about everything else on this vanity dresser came from a garage sale, estate sale, or thrift store - including the dresser! Hope you all had good treaure hunts over the weekend too ~~ Have a great day!
