Old and New

I have been wanting to make my own stamped jewelry , I think that it is charming and possibly easy .
When I was at the Aberfoyle antique market a few months back I had looked at some stamps , not realizing what they were for. After realizing these were the tools I was after I needed to make another trip to find those tools , well I was lucky this time and after asking a booth owner if he has such letter stamps , he showed me a tiny little set , a full set , I was so thrilled .

I came right home and after an attempt at a nap, I like always, couldn't wait to try something new , stamping silver .
I always wear a Tiffany style silver bracelet with a heart tag , I first stamped Sophie and Mason's names on either side , turns out to darken the letters you can use a sharpie , how easy is that .
I think I am hooked , I grabbed some other silver pieces like my cuff bracelet and stamped in "create" how fitting for me who lives to create .
I recently bought some silver discs to make into pendants but I will show you more on that later.

I will now show you all the other goodies I found there today...

These letters where hidden under some rusty old hand tools in a box , I don't know how I saw them there , I think I will add them to a piece of furniture , I am not trying to spell anything , I just bought what appealed to me.

Great patina! they are much smaller than they appear , they are smaller than the palm of my hand , I will show you soon.

Mason needed this sign , who knew she liked signs , I guess it is a new thing. Sophie got a faux pearl necklace for $2.00 and a little green glass alligator, and the stamp set was just $23.00.

Oh happy new hobby .

I found those painted hooks I was looking for .

There was a table full of jars for $2.00 each, I loved the lids .
I think these will be great for cotton balls or q-tips.

I also found my wire basket , an egg basket , I am using it for toilet paper in the master bathroom which makes it useful already .

So there you go , that was my day , hope you too had a good day , another busy day tomorrow , seeing the girl's favorite boy singer , should be fun and loud , I better go rest up , which is why I decided to put together this post tonight , I might not have gotten around to it tomorrow .
Cheers for now
