Junking and Crafting

 A little church in the town of Nocona, Texas-so pretty. We went to a few antique stores and a vintage car museum. This is the one I want.
 Don't you love that bubblegum pink?
 Here's what I've been working on. Little scottie embroideries.
 Making Christmas ornaments-this one is for son who dressed up like a Lollypop Kid for Halloween-there was a whole group that dressed like Wizard of Oz characters. I still need to add the hangers.
 A gift for Bowies Doggie Day care Mama.
 Random embroidery-I need to erase the blue pen on this.
 Found loads of wooden ornies. I will be making a wreath or two with these.
 These were thrifted- a whole bag of vintage cookie cutters-some with the wooden handles and another bag of old jello molds. Can't wait to do something with these.
 But today was so nice out we went on a picnic-Bowie is will be a year old in about a month. He's such a sweetie and I'm so glad we adopted him!!
Is it just me or do you hate paying antique store prices the more you go to thrift stores? Hope you are having a great week!


  1. What a beautiful Church. My dream is to have a quilt shop in an old Church. I love that car. My dream antique car is a Metropolitan. I know I have a lot of dreams lol. You are right when you start hitting garage sale and thrift stores it becomes harder to want to pay antique prices. Then the hunt is on. Your Bowie is just precious. Our Duchess is a Christmas baby.
    Hope you have a great day my dear.

  2. The scotties are so cute! Your little guy is cuter! LOVE the pink corvette!!! Once in awhile you can find good prices at the antique shops! I think the thrift store prices are going up around here.

  3. Your little pipe cleaner dog looks exactly like Bowie! The ornaments are soooo cute! Your embroidered Scotties and cat are adorable, too. I'm lucky that our antique shop prices are pretty low, because our thrift stores must get picked over at the crack of dawn. I rarely find anything good in them. I think the car is made for you. :)

  4. A beautiful church and car!! Love your sweet embroideries!! Have fun with all those cookie cutters and molds!! Have a great and crafty week! xo Heather

  5. Oh your little ornaments and embroidery are so special! And I was hoping that there was a new pic of Bowie too, so I was happy to see it! He is so darn cute!
    And yes, that car is amazing! I love the little round windows in the back.
    Cute post!
