New Goodies, Extra Eyes & My Journal Speaks







Ok well here I am again. This time I have some cool things to show you. First is the new goodies I bought from Ginny's Etsy Shop, http://www.etsy.com/shop/small studio. I got a package of vintage labels, some old game cards, a package of bakery twine, some brass tags, and some very small glass watch pieces bottles with corks. I also got those great yesterday, today, tomorrow stencils. I swear I bought this stuff on one day and they were here the next. WOW!! great service.
The next two photos are of 2 pair of very large extra eyes or eye glasses. And the only reason they are on this post is because I knocked them off of a very high book case when I tried to place something by them, and since they were down, I figured it would be a good time to take their pictures. The first one in yellow I picked up at the flea market a few years ago, because I thought it was fun, it is made out of wood. But the next one is my most favorite. It is made of metal and has wires arttached to it because it was hanging in a shop when I found it. Very pricey, but one day I happened by there and they were having a 50% off sale and I grabbed them. Too fun. You can tell how big these are by the way I took the pictuures. And if they were hanging instead of leaning, this morning's mishap would not be getting posted about tonight.
The last photo is of my journal the way I found it the other morning when I opened my studio/office door. I had stood it up over night to dry a spread I had created the day before, and went to bed. So it surprised me when I saw it the next morning as I had forgotten about how I had left it. It looks like it saying, "Hey check how fat I am!" LOL! You can click on each pic to enlarge to see anything better.
Hope all of you have a great weekend.

I absolutely LOVE those glasses! I'm always on the lookout for fun/funky stuff like that...you scored, Sharon!

And I adore seeing your journal like that...mine looks something like that about now (not my new one I'm using in the workshop but my "regular" art journal)...gotta love the Moleskines, huh?

I sure wish we lived closer, we'd get together at least once a week to play and journal. Wouldn't that be awesome?

Peace & Love,
~Barb~
