THIS IS MY 100TH BLOG

This is my 100th blog, thought I would never get there and just this past week I reached over 100 followers. I just love this blogging and all the friends that I've made since I started. I want to thank you Dawn for encouraging me and helping me. You will never know how much it meant to me to have you there to call on when I was stuck and that happened often. I'm still not good with this computer, but at least I have a lot of fun with it.

These are some things that I found at a couple of Estate Sales not too long ago. Thought I would share some with all of you.

I have been collecting watches, one of these days I'm going to make something with them.

And look at these little shoes. The little slippers are sooooo pretty and the other one must have lost its mate. Oh well, it looks good enough to stand alone!!!


Look at this dark crochet Lisa....... I know how you mind is working now.


This is more how it really looks, You will still like it


These are kind of butterflies, there are six of them


And I love the jewelery......Look at the pearl bee!


A shoe button hook and some metal things that I think would make pretty hat Pins to display. And just LOOK at that little pile of TATTING, that's one of the things that keeps me going to sales. LOVE that TATTING.


This is a hanky and it will be glorious when I tea dye it. All the embriodery will show up more.



This white lace needs to hit the tea bath too........


And this was an old box of buttons......... had a lot on cards still new, but most were just in the box.


I love buttons too.............


Now since this is my 100th blog and I have reached over 100 followers I need to have a give away!! So I will try to go through some of my lace, buttons, jewelery and other things that I have stashed away and make a Tattered Elegance Gift. I will give details later.


I want to thank all my blogging friends for being such sweet and gracious ladies. I have met more wonderful people blogging, a lot of my best friends, thank you Candy for bringing Charlene into my world. Just wish you was close enough to run around with us too. And thank you Charlene, Lisa, Lori, Carolyn, Cami, & Pat for being there when I need someone to chat with or craft with.


Hope every one has a blessed day tomorrow.

Lelia said...

congrats on your milestone! 100 followers! WOOT : ) What fun to read thru your (new to me) blog ... i found you thru Pat Winter's blog.

ooooo .... buttons, never enough of them .... ooooo tatting, I'm just a beginner; however, I keep at it - maybe one year I'll improve to create some sort of edge or lace!

Colleen - the AmAzINg Mrs. B said...

Wow - 100! That's soo great! and it's just the beginning, huh? What a find..that's why I like Estate sales better than garage sales - in garage sales, it's what they want to get rid of..in Estate sales, it was what they wanted to KEEP!

Lynns Lovelies said...

Congrats Pat on "100!"
What pretties you found at the estate sale~~I do love the crocheted and tatted pieces;)
I have tried needle tatting and it is fun...should work on it some more.
Your giveaway sounds fun, too!

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Happy Anniversary my sweet friend! I was going to call you my tattered friend but then I thought that didn't sound too good. LOL There is only one person in the world who loves tatting more than me & it's you! You love it more because you actually learned to do it. I am so grateful that you came into my life. Every cloud has a silver lining & you, Carolyn & Charlene are definitely MY silver lining. (you know what I mean) You have such a generous spirit & are so talented. Now, I've buttered you up enough, get that dark crocheted lace & those shoes in a bag & bring them over. Or if you can't put together a big 'ol giveaway for us all to enter. Can't wait to see the next 100! Lisa

100 blogs is special. You hit a landmark and from now on it is easy peasy. You enjoy the same things that I do - my reasures that I hunt for even if I will never use them.

All in the hunt.
