Thrifted Treasures Lately

Thrifting Treasure Crate, Sept. 2017 | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comI haven’t done a thrift haul here in ages – or on YouTube, for that matter. However I finally got around filming my latest thrift finds and – with Verdinium’s suggestion – took some pictures, too. I especially like the idea of giving you an impression of my thrifting crate in the beginning, I hope I’ll remember that next time, too.
You can find the link to my haul video (which has the wearables, too, because I’m rubbish at taking pictures of those) at the end of the post!

Thrifting Treasures: Dark, Sept. 2017 | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comWhat’s your favourite from my haul from the last two-or-three months? I especially like the Old Maid cards and the Art Nouveau frame but the pocket knives, all the lace and the rubber stamps were really lucky finds, too.

Did you find any treasures lately, thrifted or not? Please tell me in the comments!

UFO Friday

UFO Friday is my (usually) bi-weekly series where I show you what projects I’ve been working on (UFO standing for UnFinished Objects). For more of these, look here and for every other week’s feature, Finished Things Saturday, look here.

As always I’ve been doing quite some darning. Keeping my clothes wearable is one of my favourite things to do – and I even like it when it’s visible that they’ve been worn, torn and mended a few times.

With my work pants I’ve established the habit that they all get a secondary colour for mending. My black work pants have a yellow back pocket, and my tan ones get green. The pockets were in no real condition to put anything in there anymore so I finally replaced them with some secondhand placemat fabric.

Of course I’m crafting for ConQuest like a madwoman. My most current project were these small pennants to mark which of the sleeping tents are ours. The stencils came out a little bit messier than I would have liked them to be but overall I’m really pleased about the final result.

Gotta stop typing now, I’m being tickled and somebody’s trying to hit random keys as I write. I love my friends. ^^
