Good and bad news always go hand in hand...
First the bad.... I ended my 18+ month consignment relationship with Two & A Half Women in Elizabeth City, NC. They have had a big change, and had to implement some new policies. Unfortunately, I had to make a tough decision and pull my inventory. I wish them all the best on their new path.
SO now for the Good News! Because I had to drive to NC to pick up my inventory I took the opportunity to stop at The Nesting Cottage in Camden, NC. I've done previous posts on the jackpot of goodies they have to pick through. I spent over an hour sifting through piles, boxes and bags and really probably only saw about 1/2 of what there was to see. This trip I was focused on "tiny bits" the filler that I've learned is all important when making an assemblage piece. I was able to find lots of little flowers, leaves, suns & stars, birds & butterflies, crosses, angels, hearts and fairies, a couple of little spoons, watches and much, much more.
I even ran across a few 'USA' themed items. I am saving those for a special project that is a few months down the road, blog post in the coming months on that...
So yesterday I washed, dried, clipped, filed and broke down those pieces into all my little assemblage drawers. 150+ pieces...all for $8 I feel an assemblage binge coming on....
In other GOOD NEWS, I have completed my Bead Soup for the 8th BSBH and will be doing a post about that very soon.
Oh, and I have a show Saturday so I'd better get busy.... SEE ~ more good news. :-D
