village...the weekend


the weekend
has sped by
and
i am sitting here
sunday night
after
a lovely dinner
with my
dear friends
mel & brian
feeling like
i still need
to have
2 days
actually off!

i didn't
get around
to posting
my village finds,
so here they are...

here are my finds for friday:

1. strange misc items

2 unusual items
that i bought
because they
fascinated me.
the
auto-whis-kit
(whis?!)
appears to be
something
from the 50s or 60s
for brush snow/
scraping ice
off your car...
also includes a
meter feeder
compartment

and
can opener!
the other item
is for
purse construction.
it's
a closing
mechanism
for clutch-type
purses.


2. things for hanging

i have been looking
for something
to hang
necklaces
and
long pieces
of fancy paper.
i thought that
the painted white
metal hanger thing
would work
for necklaces
(in an industrial
sort of way).
the vintage
towel rack
can be hung
on the inside
of a door
and long paper
rolls can be
put on them.
i think that
i saw it in
martha stewart
or something.

3. tops

silk coral vest/top
from asia
and
very soft
white cotton
sleeveless top.

4. pyrex container

another pyrex
storage dish
for the kitchen.

5. items for eero

my friend eero
collects shenango
and likes
to wear vests.

6. baby clothes

baby clothes
for my
nephew/niece
on the way.
grub and i
plan to
freezer stencil
the little
white tees
for
baby x.
i had to get
the blue onesie
because
this design

was so
darned cute!

that
was it
for
village friday.

i leave you all
with
happy father's day
wishes
to all dads
and
a collage
i made
for
my own father...

The "strange misc item" you found is so cool! I am intrigued. I bet you will do something fabulous with the closing mechanism!

I think they didn't add the "K" to Whisk cause it was already there in the "Kit" so -- like a whisk broom, just whis - k..it. Right? My parents always kept a whisk broom in our car ? Must have been the thing to do.

Really nice collage for your father - love the background.

If you do the "paint" version and not the inkjet version, I have some teal blue and regular green I used to make stenciled onesies for Jenny's baby. it's fun and homemade - a really super gift I'm sure your brother will be happy to have. :)
I haven't tried the injet method.
