No saling this morning, and I didn't go out saling last Saturday... guess I was still traumatized from last Friday's 'Full Moon Saling' adventures!! So, not much new 'stuff' to show. On Sunday we did go to a car show, which had a good sized Flea Market, and I picked up these two little gems. Gold-toned glove clip ($1) and a double chain sweater clip with black stones ($1).
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I seem to have been shorted on the 'crafting gene', but when Fall is in the air - you never know what may happen!! Somehow it usually involves dried 'weeds', a hot glue gun and spray paint. Thursday morning I hit a Thrift... found a 'new' 18" straw wreath form ($1.99) and that's all it took to ignite the spark! At home I gathered: armloads of Artemesia from the garden, floral wire & pins from my attic stash, a bag of plastic fruit I had picked up at a sale a couple of weeks ago (.25¢), dried Hydrangea from my Mom & a can of metallic silver spray paint from the basement. Two hours later this is what I had...
(Lighting changes the look of it completely ~ thus, TWO photos)
Okay, Martha I'm NOT. But hey, it was a cheap afternoon of entertainment!!
Thursday evening, we had our first flower on our Moon Flower Bush (Datura Inoxia / Devils Trumpet / Thorn Apple). Isn't it a beaut? (It's in a pot with a couple of other plants, so don't be confused by the various foliage!)I've posted often in the past about our Moon Flowers - don't be confused!! There are many different plants that people refer to as 'Moon Flowers'. We have FIVE! different variations in our yard.
This is the one I commonly talk about. It is my favorite because the flowers open so rapidly that we can watch them! It is an Oenothera Acaulis Aurea / Dandelion Sundrop / Moon Flower / Texas Dandelion.
That's all I've got for today! Lots of sales 'supposed' to be happening tomorrow, BUT rain is predicted, so I shall have to wait~n~see!!
