I love going to estate sales. Is it just me, or do you kind of get a rush and your pulse quickens when you find something really good? I love it! Last summer I bought a vintage Enid Collins bag - BRAND NEW AND STILL IN THE ORIGINAL BOX - for $25.00! Sorry for shouting at you in all caps, but WOW! I scored it a year ago, and I'm still excited about it! No it's not a knock off or reproduction - it's the real deal.
At another estate sale I bought a bell jar for $3.00. I didn't know what I was going to do with it. I just wanted it because I love bell jars and for $3.00 I figured I couldn't go wrong. Later on Pinterest, I saw this pin and I knew exactly what I was going to do with it.
First, I got a twig from my backyard. Then, I went to the floral department at Michael's and bought some pre-wired butterflies for just a few dollars. All I had to do was wire the butterflies to the twig and put the bell jar over it. It doesn't get any easier than that! And it looks so pretty in my living room.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. ALL of the projects on my blog are inspired by Pinterest. I am completely and happily addicted to Pinterest and I'm determined to actually do the things I pin! You can read more about me and my mission here.
