TREASURE HUNTING

I decided to stop into one of my favorite thrift shops, Habitat for Humanity.  They had tables and tables of Christmas items.  I quickly scanned them didn't see much went to the frames and something told me to go back for a second look.  Well I found this, a bag FULL of gold ornaments.

When I say this bag was loaded, I am not kidding.  Right away the birdcages caught my eye, ASSEMBLAGES my minds eye screamed.  Then I saw the spider webs....then the crosses...so I decided to buy it.  I was like a kid and brought it home and dumped it on the table... take a peek...
12 Days of Christmas Brass Ornaments
Glass Icicles
Real glittered sand dollars
snowflakes
crosses
This is just a sample of the things in there....I have saved the best to show later....oh and I forgot to take pictures of the rest of the loot.  But I did start to create with some of it and some of it I am putting in my Etsy shop and GREAT prices to share with my friends.

And here are a few things I have made with them....so far.  A good find for sure, very happy with this trip to the thrift store.
