A Little Late But.....

Here are some pictures from our road trip to The Farm Chicks Sale in Spokane. I went to Gonzaga University there so it is always like coming home when I go up to Washington. We stayed with my dear friend and former college room-mate, Christine. Had a fun time and got to see what everybody else is up to right now!

This is why we carry doll heads and parts...the art was fabulous!

These were done using zinc canning jar lids and glass lids!

A display idea using our favorite structural parts....old wooden ladders.  They had built a whole room using the ladders as the structure...Wouldn't it make a cute garden room?

I really thought this was a cute display idea until my friend Christine said it reminded her of the Holocaust.  All of a sudden it wasn't so cute....

The same people had such wonderful architectural stuff.  They seemed to have an unending supply.  That's me trying to look natural for the picture...yuck I hate having my picture taken!  But do notice the neat use of the old drawer.

More cool doll head was sort of "Edward Scissorhands-Toy Story"-ish-creepy but cool!

This clock didn't really function but the look was fantastic.  Looked like it could have come from an old Frenchy building.

We NEED one of these industrial wooden gears...

Interesting framing idea...
