We've had a couple of nice weekends this month, perfect for junqueing. The DH and I went to Shawnee one Saturday and, as always, found lots of great things including vintage cards and Valentines, crepe paper, buttons, a locket, and a funky pink corset. I also couldn't resist the little red and white striped Barbie dress.
Leake Car Auction just to see what was on offer. It was my first time at a car auction and I enjoyed it. There were several hot rods being sold so the DH was excited about that, but he would have enjoyed it a lot more had he been buying - maybe next time! Afterward I convinced him to stop by one of my favorite shops where I found some 1938 and 1939 magazines. He's building a 1939 Chevy street rod so I thought I might be able to find an ad for his car. The only one was for a 4-door rather than a 2-door, but I'll probably frame it for his garage anyway. I also found a Valentine apron that still has the original price tag sewn into a seam, a pink tablecloth with the sweetest trim and a yearbook with a beautiful embossed cover that will be perfect for a travel journal.
The Rink. We all found treasures and got some great crafting ideas. We sat for a bit after checking out to listen to the live music and to talk a little more - can never get enough of that! I brought home a navy velvet hat with beautiful pearls, beads and mother of pearl flowers and leaves sewn on a ribbon around the brim (can't see it in the photo, darn it), two huge cards of trim for an amazing price, and my usual buttons, photos and linens.
All in all, February was a great month!
