Happy Shopping

While many of you are out hitting the Black Friday sales, I will be Colorful Friday shopping. Since I really don't have any more Christmas shopping to do, I'm headed to the flea market, where among other things, I will be searching for more vintage tins to add to my studio storage collection. And maybe Sweet Hubby will get a chance to start shopping for me. I'm trying to imagine a present I would like better than an old tin filled with vintage pom poms. Better than jewelery I tell ya.
Hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday. I have decided to never eat again. Well at least not until that stuffing and egg breakfast casserole comes out of the oven in about 30 minutes.

  1. You and your tins! I am insanely envious of the whole lot of 'em. :) And I hope you get that Holy Grail tin filled with vintage pom poms. Sounds heavenly! Hope your Thanksgiving was a yummy one, friend.

  4. I'm jealous of your flea market galavanting. I hope you find something fab. I think a stuffing and egg casserole recipe may need to be shared...no rush though, as it will be weeks before I'm hungry again. Happy vintage hunting!

  8. Jen, Doug & I went to the Holiday Market here in Bloomington this a.m. and I found a pr of earrings I wanted & I said "do you want to get these for me for Christmas?" there was this lady standing between us and she laughed and looked at Doug & said "yes, the answer is yes, you want to get those for her." He told me to keep walking and that he MIGHT get them for me. ;-) hugs, Cheryl

  10. Oh yes, if I were to go shopping on Black Friday, it would be to a flea market or an antique store! Smart choice! :) I am loving your vintage tins! They are all so cute! :)

    I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful AND your weekend, too! :)

  11. Jen,

    Was hoping that you and your daughter still wanted to be in the Little BIT's Ornament Swap. I don't have your email address so I couldn't send you an email with questionaire. Can you please email me by Monday Nov 30th? rumcraft@kc.rr.com

    Blessings,

    Sheila and Janna

  12. I love it that you are out galavanting at flea markets when everyone else is out in the Black Friday madness. I was at the Field Museum in Chicago on Black Friday. It was a mess as well!

    Love tins! I'm always on the lookout for them. I got one for .50 at Salvation Army last week. An old DeMets candy tin, deliciously vintage and crackled.

    Love it.

    Happy Days to you Jen.

  13. I have that pink tin!!! I believe it came from Sears when I was a kid, with fruit cake in it (because that's where most of our tins came from). My mom used it for sewing things for years and years and I keep my cookie cutters in it now!
