The baggie full of handles for $1, the antique photo frame for $1, the cute wooden luggage piece was $1..and I got 10 vintage cardboard Saint patricks day containers for .10cents each. (10 total) A shadow box filled with vintage millinery was $4 and lastly some vintage felt butterflys for .25cents and a silver plated business card holder for $1. (something I was needing!)

Here is the back of the parrot, its tail feathers hanging down the back of the cupcake...Eeeeeeeeeeeeeek....I think I hear a cat approaching...Here is a pirate banner to add to my collection of pirate banners.... I've got the "fixings" to make 2 more just like this one :-) I think I am going to stencil the same thing on the backside of this banner... one of these days!
