Is it o.k. to claim fabric pack, coffee bags, metal/plastic charms and plastic container (I was thinking that would equal 2 from pick 2 and one from pick 4  Tongue)? If you think I am being too greedy just skip the charms, no problem.  Smiley

claims allowed 2
claims made this round 2
sent 0
received 0


Nestlaces, pendants, silver plated with pearls. Chose from apricot or dove blue. NOW PICK 2!

Wash cloth plus wash scrub ball. Really lovely handmade kit I got in a swap once, but unfortunately I will not use it, so I hope it is o.k. to let it go to someone else.

Purple handbag with butterflies and bow, made by me. Nothing wrong with it at all, but it is not very sturdy (more like a tote bag) and it has no closing mechanism. Hence half a claim.


Loads of beads made of different materials. The alphabet ones are a bit worn, or maybe vintage.  Tongue


Ceramic pendants, glazed. Click the thumbnails for better pictures. It's hard to get really good pictures though because of lighting and reflections. Number 3 is taken already! Newly made by me, but some of them have kind of a vintage look. "Shabby chic."  Smiley Height varies from just under an inch to almost two inches.


Charms: Singer sewing machines plus knitting. All four for 1/4 claim.

. . .

Genuine vintage portrait photos (with genuine wear and tear  Smiley), from the late 19:th or early 20:th century. Less blurry IRL. 1/4 claim each. About 4 x 2 1/2 inches. Now you can see both front and back. Claim by number. Note: Number 2 and 6 are claimed already!


The skull ring. Distinct red, grey and black buttons, black button acting as a somewhat medieval looking collar for the skull firmly placed on top of the buttons, looking around. Ring is adjustable to fit all sizes.


Lovely handmade (wirework) charms that I got in a swap once. I claimed a lot of them and have used some, but can't use them all. All for 1/4 claim.


I love U ring. (The last image is there just to show that that part sticking out below the heart button is visible if you look at the ring from a really weird angle. It has no real practical significance, but I thought you should know.  Smiley Ring is adjustable to fit all sizes.)

Fabric scraps, two times 59" x 11".

Colorful fabric scraps, about 34x23 inches laid out like this.



Seven plastic toy soldiers.

Some scull beads. Perhaps just under 1/2 inch in size, will measure.

Angel stamp with ink in the stamp, angel about 3/4" tall.

Stamp (foam) snowflake, about 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches.


Quilting pattern. "Ring around the posie".


Quilting pattern. "Patriots pride".


Mountain Mist history leaflet, "Blue Book of Quilts", about 55 pages.

. . .

Old postcards/photos ranging from around the year 1900 (maybe earlier) to 1950. Around 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches, but that varies. Please ask if you need to know more specific. Some have some wear to them and some have text on the back (some examples posted). Please ask if you need to know more about them. Claim by number. Note: Number 5 is already claimed!
