I FOUND THIS AT A SALE FOR $5.00
I STORE MY OLD LACE & QUILT PATCHES IN IT ( ANOTHER COLLECTION)!
THIS IS ONE OF THE THNGS I MAKE WITH OLD HOMESPUN, TCKING, BARKCLOTH, LACE & BUTTONS: LAVENDER SACHETS FOR DRAWERS OR TO PUT IN A BIG BOWL OR TO PUT UNDER YOUR PILLOW TO DRIFT OFF TO SLEEP :) IT RELAXES & CALMS YOU...................

I FOUND THIS AT A SALE FOR $5.00


WHEN I SAW THIS AT A SALE, I HAD TO HAVE IT & THOUGHT IT WOULD COST A FORTUNE $5.00 WASN'T TOO BAD :) SO I WHITEWASHED IT, PROBABLY SHOULDN'T HAVE, BUT TOO LATE, I'M NOT STRIPPING IT! IT'S A SIDE TABLE,(FOUR DRAWERS WITH LITTLE NUBBY LEGS); BUT I PUT IT IN MY "EBAY" ROOM ON A TABLE & IT'S STORING MY MATERIAL & LACE . I LOVE MAKING THESE SACHETS OUT OF VINTAGE MATERIAL BECAUSE THEY ALL HAVE A DIFFERENT LOOK. I CAN'T STOP MAKING THEM; I'M UP TO 100 & AM GOING TO MAKE MORE THIS WEEK LOL. I DO TUCK THEM IN AS AN EXTRA GIFT IN MY EBAY SELLING. IT CALMS THE CUSTOMERS:)

Magnolia1 writes: What an endless supply of wonderful, neat, useful and whimsical ideas! Please share your eBay screen name so we can see the wares you have for sale on there, too! I used to do that for a while, then got too lazy - but I'm being inspired to return one day soon, maybe. After all - we "accumulators" (more than merely "collectors"!) have to find a way to part with some of our treasures eventually, right? How else can we continue to bring in more fun finds from our garage sale and flea marketing jaunts?! Keep up the awesome work! Posted: 2:18 pm on January 9th
