{Echo} Week 21 - Portals

This photo is inside a caboose at the Lititz Springs Park. I thought it was a good portrayal for the theme Portals. I took this photo only using the FX app on my phone.

I found this hammer and punch for $3.00 total for using in my jewelry making. I wasn't thinking about it at the time but I should have looked for some sort of anvil too. But that gives me a good reason to go back next week!

These two cabinet cards were a steal at $1.00 and the bottles for $2.00 (the vendor had them marked at $5.00) The bottles will make great necklaces with wire wrapped tops!

The crystals are in perfect condition and surprisingly they were clean! This is only a view of a couple of them as I actually got a quart size zip-lock bag for $5.00. I will keep some of these to use in my jewelry or projects but I think I will share and list them on my Etsy shop! Keep an eye out!

I was walking past a table where a guy was digging through a box but I really wasn't paying too much attention to what was he was looking at, so I kept walking. When I heard the clanking of the silverware, it stopped me in my tracks and I went back. It was actually the seller and he was counting them. He had 10 cents each on the box and when he saw me looking at them he said he had just counted way over 100 pieces. He then offered to sell me the whole box of vintage silverware for $5.00. Of course I said "SOLD" immediately! He asked what I had planned to do with them as there weren't too many pieces that matched. I told him I planned on smashing them flat with a hammer. The look on his face was priceless! I told him my plans to paint on them and ended up talking to the guy for about 15 minutes about my art. I am excited to start using these goodies!
