For the past 2 Saturdays I've hit the thrift shops and have come home with a few items. Sometimes it's a great big barren desert out there. Other times it's awesome. The beauty for shopping second hand is you never know what you'll find. Half of these finds are from Braganza, which is a rummage sale to benefit the VSU symphony, the other half are store finds.
Two ties, the one on the left is vintage. The right one was too cool not to buy. it's silk and made in England.
Two scarves. The gray one is cashmere from Scotland, the red a cotton Bo Ho style.
Two books (hey, I spot trend). The Saint Laurent one is from a Met Museum of Art show, 1983. I can't seem to pass up Better Homes and Gardens vintage cookbooks. This one is from 1966.
Only one handbag, but two views. At first I thought this was an old camera case.
Handmade paper journal.
Navy blue cardigan for The Doctor.
Midnight blue velvet tunic for me. I never can get velvet to look nice in photos.
It's been raining on and off for three days, my fingers are crossed that all the pine pollen was washed away.
If you celebrated Easter, I hope it was lovely.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 192
One of the 1940's dolls I got at the last auction. She's dressed in Chinese pajama's.
Spring has sprung all over town. Which means all that pine pollen is worse than last week. I know it's bad when I have to stay indoors. Fingers are crossed that it's almost done.
Speaking of done, we're this close to having Oklahoma finished and done. That show opens in a week. Then we can play with all the hats and shoes from that giant-sized donation.

HAPPY SAINT PATRICK'S DAY/ SPRING BREAK
Spring Break is a hallowed collage tradition in America. A whole week off to "party". I'm taking advantage of a quite building to finish as much of the musical as possible, it's coming up fast.
We're having major signs of spring around here.............
Happy Saint Patrick's Day from my car.
Even the plants are wearing the green. It's everywhere, no wonder I have itchy eyes.
Mr. Scooty was enjoy the sunshine the other evening.
The Doctor made this art project a couple of months ago. First cooking, then art, he'll be wanting to learn to sew next.

TREASURE AT THE AUCTION
When we decided to move (which hasn't happened) I swore off on-line auctions. Downsizing, ya know. That didn't last very long. Here's my latest finds
All this jewelry for $17.
Added to my camera collection. I didn't have one with the flash attachment.
This was listed as "assorted vintage items". It's all sewing items. I waited until the end of the auction and won this for $5.
Three vintage suitcases. Can't get the brown one open, yet. Also got the Doctor an old pair of binoculars, which he put somewhere. And weird dolls. Stay tuned for them.

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 189
My guess is Dutch. The wooden shoes are a giveaway. And he looks like the Dutch Boy paint can. At least I thinks it's a he. That eye makeup......
Won a bunch of things at an on-line auction the other day. So much for swearing off doing that. It's my one vice.
Spring must be here, as pollen is fallen and getting all up my nose. At least it's sunny and pleasant, weather wise. Enjoy your day.

IT'S SUPER TUESDAY, Y'ALL
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've probably heard that the USA is electing a new President in November. Before that happens, there's something called primaries. That's state elections to pick the top candidate from both parties. We pretty much have 2 parties in this country, Democrats and Republicans. Today is Super Tuesday, which is when 11 states votes. In Georgia, where I live, you go to your polling place, fill out a form, mark Dem or Rep, go to the voting machine and vote. We also have early voting, which we did a couple of weeks ago.
Yes, a selfie station.
I promise my blog wont turn into a blog about the election. That would get tired pretty quick.
