Avocado glass extravaganza

Avocado green glass extravaganza. Each piece is different and I think every piece is Anchor Hocking. My most favorite color is a bluish turquoise called Laser Blue. I have really slowed down thrifting.I'm trying to be more selective.

Bunny in the shadow

I only have one really old bunny. I found it at Salvation Army a few years ago. It is musical and was filled with yucky foam. I emptied it washed it and then refilled it. Now it is fresh as a daisy. I found the little wicker basket and added pink velvet on the handle and wooden eggs and bunnies.

Big Bunny, Printed Bunny, Little Bunny!

I am avoiding doing the laundry by having fun with my Easter goodies. I found the awesome gold frame at Goodwill yesterday and have had the other bunnies for awhile.
I printed the rabbit graphic onto a page from a book published in 1887, yep you read that right. I was given an issue of "The Century Magazine" it is falling apart but full of neat illustrations.

Ben Franklin and Gurley Candles

I bought a rather big book on Ben Franklin by Walter Isaacson. On the next aisle at Good Will I happend on two Gurley candles. I have never seen any in person only on blogs. I got them both for 1.91.

I also found these three green planters. I decided to put a single flower bud in each one. I am bringing Spring indoors with these.

Memory Card Matching Game Milton Bradley 1966

I just happened on this Milton Bradley Memory game from 1966. I go to Salvation Army twice a week .
I look for books, dishes, vintage lingerie and fabric. We are on a first name basis. I paid a wooping 99 cents and I was so excited because the illustrations are for the most part awesome. Alice and Martin Provensen are one of the illustrators.
I'm either going to frame them or glue tiny clothes pins on the back and display them on wire.

Valentine Conversation Heart Topiary

I love a good Topiary every once in a while. I made this with 3 inch foam ball painted pink, wooden dowel rod, deer moss, and Valentine candy.... Lots of hot glue and luckily no burns. I bought the cute planter for 4 dollars at the Antique and Merchandise Market here in Valdosta. If your local it is 407 N St Augustine Road in the old Valdosta Flea Market Building. I have a booth there stop by sometime.
