my own idea of treasure

I saw these beauties at the bottom of a stack on the bottom shelf at GW, Under a bunch of pots and pans. When I saw them and rushed over and knelt down, A lady  noticed my excitement and was clearly ready to try and get some of what I was after. When she saw that this is what I was after, she gave me the weirdest look. If she understood, they would not have still been there for me to find, now would they? It was my very own treasure.

GW Finds, sweet prim gifts, and some new homes for my treasures

Sorry for not posting for a while. I have been super busy with some projects around the house and with a new curriculum. I have a ton on my mind, but I know that there is too much there for it to come out in proper English today, So I will just share some pics with you-- Ya I know that is what you like!! God Bless You!!
Look at the candle dipper in the above post, Don't ya love it? I do!!! My husband is such a sweetheart!! He ordered it for me with some other really nice things__ I mixed my pictures up but you can see the rest on the last picture.
So as requested... the new homes of the wonderful things Lisa sent me( until I rearrange again, you know how that goes)-- I know I said it before but I can't help saying Thanks so much Lisa!!!

A few GW finds.:

My sweet husband decided to find me some prim gifts on his own!!! The scales, the cans(one says paprika)-- This gives me an indication of what he thinks primitive is. He also bought me the crock: what an absolute doll!! Thank You Baby!!

My husband ordered these for me. Cute stuff huh?

Salt dough ornies and a thrift store makeover

I love salt dough ornies, so I made some for Valentines Day. Simple and easy recipe--- 2 cups flour, 1 cup salt, 1 cup water---- roll out and cut like cookies. Bake at 300 for 45-60 minutes(varies depending on the thickness)-- You can also paint words, polka dots, etc if you want.Make great bowl fillers.
I figured I would make some for St.Patty's while I was at it: Fun huh? If you decide to make some, show me!!!

I bought this collection of items for about 50 cents each:

Here is the first makeover ( the heart that used to say forever)

Dollar Tree Makeover-- gotta love finding treasure for one dollar.

I found this pear soap dispenser at the Dollar Tree. (It comes with soap... and they had an assortment of fruit shapes).

So I decided to grunge it: (mod podge/cinnamon mixture painted right on):

Are you ready to see how to get this much fabric for $5?

That is right!!! $5 per bag at the thrift shop!!! You are going to stain and grungy and cut and rip and tear anyway... this way it doesn't feel so bad.
