Time flies, except when you’re waiting for Warrenton!

24 Mar

Here we are … almost TWO MONTHS down the road from my last post.  Where has the time gone?  Not to blogging, obviously.  Every time I think I’ll start blogging up a storm again, well, I don’t.  And it’s not like I don’t have tons to talk about!  As we creep toward my WARRENTON (!) weekend, I’ve been killing time and saving money for the trip by shopping from my own storage room.  And I must admit, it has been a little like Christmas and very rewarding. 

I’ve had two plastic dress forms for the longest time.  They are covered in some stretchy disintegrating fabric, and I never could decide what to do with them.  I was thinking of stripping off the fabric…too much work for lazy ol’ me.  So…that left me with an option to somehow attach something to them to cover their gnarly state.  I thought about book pages, but they are too fragile to pin.  So…as I was sorting through my storage room, I discovered a huge lot of old photos in a plastic bag.  I couldn’t even recall getting them.  So either they were put in a shopping bag by mistake months ago or I got them dirt cheap.    Anyway, I decided to pin them all over one of the dress forms, and got this as the result:

One dress form down, one to go. 

Other interesting finds in my storage room:  Hanky after hanky…guess I’ve been hoarding for a display.  Now I need to come up with some swank way to display them.  I also discovered a Lladro bunny I’d bought many months ago.  Took him to the shop today with a chunky price tag.  I know people collect that stuff, which is why I bought him to begin with, but he’s just too shiny for me and looks, quite frankly, like something you would see at the dollar store.  If you are a collector, I’m sure you see something special in him that I just can’t begin to imagine.  And I bow down to you, even though we don’t share tastes.  Perhaps my favorite storage room find was a 1920s creamy satin dress covered in old lace.  Beautiful.  I can’t remember where I bought it, but remember buying it because of the lace.  I think it’s too small for my Homestead girl, so it’ll be travelin’ to Llano soon.

And I’ll be travelin’ soon, but not to Llano! Hope to see you in Warrenton!  I’ll be there Saturday and Sunday and then again Saturday, April 3.  If I can convert my storage room finds to cash this pay period, I’ll be a happy little Warrenton shopper.  Here’s to good junk in the days ahead!  And to more blogging…hopefully.
