Hello! Here is my latest card- it's a birthday card for one of my best friend's mom. Using my new Cuttlebug, of course! :) And a super cute House Mouse stamp!

Last week, I was also fortunate enough to go to some antique stores in Tonawanda! Just look at all the vintage lovelies I found!!

A gorgeously aged cyclopedia! Not only does it have a beautiful cover, but inside are great drawings and information on social etiquitte from times past.

My first vintage apron!! This apron is so pretty with its sheer sea green color and lace accents! It even has a tiny pocked edged with lace. And only $3.50!

I found an organizer for $4.00- so I finally have somewhere to put all my Copics! These small vintage frames were such a steal at only $1.50 a piece!! And at the bottom is something that looks like part of a printing press- but I don't know what it's called. I liked it because the little man on it reminds me of the Monopoly man! And I bought it for a whopping 75 cents!

3 gorgeous millinery flowers and Tons of lace!! There are 30 yards of vintage lace edging on the card alone!! And it was only $2.50!!! And THEN, I found this FREEZER BAG full of lace fabric- for only 3.50!!!!

Last, but not least, I found one of those glass Christmas pickles!!! I think it is a German tradition- but not quite sure... The tag says the pickle is hidden on the Christmas tree and the one who finds it gets a special Christmas surprise! :) Hmm.... Almost sounds like a good blog hunt for Christmas! :)
Ok... just had to share! I must now go get settled from returning from our weekend at Matt's family's cabin. As always, thanks for visiting!!
