My husband gave me a $50 VISA card he received as a rebate when he purchased a new phone and Michaels just happened to have 40% off plus another 15% off on beads. I now have some lovely beads for my Art and Old Lace quilt challenge project. I also spent some of the money on beaded trim at JoAnn fabrics which happens to be next door to Michaels. $50 gone in 30 minutes.
Oh and I won $20 from a random drawing at Retro Cafe Art http://www.retrocafeart.com/ I already ordered and received my wonderful assortment from Kristin. Wow, who knew that $20 could get so much cool stuff. Thank you Retro Cafe! Every Wednesday on facebook Retro Cafe has a drawing for $20 along with great contests and challenges.
The tiny brass bottle (on white lace) was described as a poison or perfume bottle. It is so cool. I prefer to think of it as a poison bottle and will be turning in into a necklace.
