Show & Tell Sunday ~ Vintage Bits

My internet is spotty so I'm making this post short & sweet before I lose it. There are quite a few pictures on my flickr account. I went to an estate sale on Saturday & could have bought half of the place. I found some jewelry bits & this tiny Channel perfume bottle. I found the jewelry a little too late. I probably would have come home with more. I got to the room & another lady had 2 baggies of jewels. I told my hubby I should have body checked her. Hee hee!
My big score were these metal "thingys" in a baggie. I had no idea what they were. I just knew I liked them. I didn't even open the bag to figure it out. They were scrolly rusty things & I was sold. These are going to be great jewelry components. I've already bent one of the pieces, inked it up & put a clear finishing coat on it. Hopefully, I'll finish it later on today & photograph it.
Make sure to go visit the Show & Tell group on flickr. It's total eye candy. Special thanks to our hostesses with the mostestes, Cerri & Cindy.

Those are great finds! Just love old perfume bottles and those metal bits are really cool!

We don't have any cool estate sales like that around here - everything is too new, but I reading about other people's fabulous finds!
