1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Yard Sale Gold Mine on: January 24, 2008 08:32:55 PM
I bought a 50's table off craigslist and when I went to pick it up, the lady literally had a garage sale in her living room. She told me to look through everything and much to my delight, her mother was a craftster!

Here's what I got:

Fabric, dolls, a crocheted owl....

The Kewpie dolls are my favorite! 

2 rolls of old wrapping paper and a roll of 50's wall paper!

Here's the actual table that I got (I'm going to refinish it)

Any ideas on what to do with the wallpaper???

I might go back and buy the rest of her Kewpie dolls just to have.  They're basically NOS at $1.50 each!!!!

I have a co-worker and a friend who just had baby boys.  I wanted to do some iron on transfers but had the idea of making patches out of some fabric.

I found some clearance onsies at Target (WHO knew they were so expensive?Huh) and cut the owl out of the fabric shown above.  I then used a heat transfer tape to iron on the onesie and the last step is to sew it down on the onesie itself so it's completely secure.   

I think I might use red thread.

3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Recipe box on: January 09, 2008 10:22:41 PM
My best friend is pretty hard to shop for.  She's butch, rides her bike everywhere and loves to cook.

So I decided to decoupage a recipe box for her. 

I bought a unfinished box from Michaels for 1.99.  Instead of painting it, I used Old English to stain it so it looked a bit more classy.

Then I printed out a bunch of pin-ups (using my super nice printer at work....shhhhhh...don't tell my boss).

This is my first time doing mod podge stuff.  I love it!
