Junkin' Finds and a Vintage Smock for a Friend!

Our trip to Monroe was so much fun. I wish I could treasure hunt every weekend. Here is a lady head vase that I found the perfect shade to match my studio. She is tiny, too.
This lovely old linen would make great porch pillows. It is very crisp and in excellent shape. I should have enough to do 4 pillows. They should brighten up my back porch a bit.
My camera and I don't seem to be getting along very well lately. So many pictures are blurry. Here is a collection of my other finds.
I love this old painted wooden hanger. It has clothes brushes on each end and is hinged in the middle to fold for traveling.
A met a fellow artist and sweet lady last Spring when the Southern Blogger's got together. Her name is Yvette, "E" for short and she has a kind spirit. I connected with her immediately. She is an amazing artist and has begun holding art classes. It would be great to go to one of her classes. E asked me to make her one of my vintage smocks. So after making her wait awhile, here is what I created for her.
I can see her sporting her vintage smock while teaching her art classes. You go E!!! Hope to see you soon.
