Then I found some old vintage puzzles. Not quite sure what I will do with them yet. May glue them together and put a hanger on back, so they could be hung on a wall.
We have a Santa, Woody Wood Pecker among these old puzzles.
Here is a cute bear family...

I have been working on more pieces to add to the Art/Craft Show in December. Here are some of the items I have finished so far.
The filling is from pages I tore out of vintage books, I used the covers in my other pieces of art.
A proud mama and her baby. Back ground is a page from one of my vintage books.
The above picture is of a pretty little girl posing on a horse with her mama.
Here we have a copy of a black and white picture of a car and the proud owners. Sitting in the front seat is two ladies. I think the young boy is just adorable. At the top is a copy of a vintage drivers license I found some time ago.
I have finished the back by gluing a page from a book and then gluing on a hanger so it can be displayed on a wall if desired. Would also fit just perfect in a display on a table or bookshelf.
These are made with covers from old books, vintage lace, pictures, keys, buttons, jewels and drift wood I collected from the Lake Superior beach this fall.
This will be my first art/craft show in over 15 years so and I am a little nervous and praying for some success.
Thanks for stopping by... Please take a moment looking around and I hope that you will return soon to see what I am up to.... Grace

I have been busy getting ready for an Art/Craft show...
While wandering the blogs I came across this cute idea at http://niceandeasyantiques.blogspot.com/2010/10/little-transformation.html . I thought it was cute, easy to make and unique.
What do you think??

It would be perfect on a buffet for olives, pickles or anything else. Middle of lazy Susan was open and I really think that the bowl belongs with this set. They were separated from each other and priced separately. With my discount I was able to buy for $7.50 plus tax.
I believe this set was from the 1950's to 1970's. Aqua was popular in the 1950's and then again in the 1970.
Next stop was to Goodwill and there I found for $2.00 this Indiana Glass with Ruby Flash Goblet. Condition is good with no wear to the ruby Flash

Yesterday we were out hunting and stopped at a small estate/garage sale. Boy was it chilly. November in Northern Minnesota is not really garage sale time.
Well in this garage is a pile of books and as I look through them I found craft books on quilting, basket making and a couple of recipe/cookbooks to sell on the internet.
I will be listing it tonight on eBay but until it sell will share some of the recipes with you at my other blog http://www.couponloversunite.blogspot.com/. Stop over there if interested
