Warning. This post is a plethora of pictures.
Yesterday was the first day of An Affair of the Heart - an awesome local arts and crafts show. I went with my mother-in-law and had a blast. We shopped for almost 8 HOURS. (And I escaped with only spending $23!!) The first picture is a gift from Patrick's parents. They got one for their eldest son and daughter-in-law after they were married. I got to pick out the letters, mat, and frame; it will go over our TV in the living room! I love it! :)
The following pictures I will explain now.
The first picture is of these cuuuuute hair accessories - total of $11 for one headband and two clips. I love them! And they will serve as inspiration for my own crafts.
The second picture has two things. First: the books - Little Men and Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott, the follow ups to Little Women. Copyright of 1943, and they have a sweet message in the fronts of both. $3 each. The buttons are ADORABLE in person and will serve as functioning parts of my crafts. :) $3 for 30 buttons.
The third and fourth pictures are by far my favorite purchases. At 25 cents a piece, they are all foreign postcards. The LATEST dated is 1915; the EARLIEST dated is from 1887! I am so in love! No idea what I will do with them yet, but have no fear - it will be awesome.
The fifth and sixth pictures are of a letter sent to someone in Philadelphia in 1903. The actual letter is tiny, making the 5 pages of writing even smaller. This was among the purchase of postcards for 25 cents. Total cost: $3.
***I forgot to talk about the amazing deals I got at Borders. Next time!
