Finders Keepers

When do you say that you have enough stuff?? How can you say no to such lovely stuff you happen across in an oppie... I guess the sensible person would say "just don't go" but i can't help it. I am very conscious of bringing bags of stuff in the house and never taking bags of stuff out of it.
Oh well what can one do but become "one of those hoarders" with nineteen cats.

Regardless I will share a some special things I got this week. 
Above is the most gorgeous wool hat and shoes, from two different oppies, but matched so nicely. I will have to wait till winter before i can wear the hat but i have already put the shoes to good use.

 I also picked up a small stack of Home Journals from the 40's and 50's. Its seems this magazine had patterns included...sad face..mine weren't..oh but to dream!! Pretty sure I may actually wet my pants if I had found the patterns with them.

 What I love most about old magazines are the ad's...intriguing...I don't think advertisers these days would agree to words such as "deforming fat" and suggest you tame your husbands alcohol problem by "secretly" giving him medicine.

I have plans for these images - I want to do some collages, some fabrics for spoonflower and I am thinking of packaging them up to give away on here as a digital file {photoshop stamps, thumb images, etc} so stay tuned if your keen for some free retro propaganda.

Today I'm going to link up with Flea Market Finds..its been awhile.
I might even do some oppie stalking over there and hopefully save myself some cash during the week...tis better to look than buy so they say {rubbish!!}.
