Carroms and Vintage Finds

I found this wonderful box of vintage game pieces for a game named "carroms". It was apparently played on a board (didn't come with that) and is similar to billards but you use your fingers to flick the rings on the board for points. There are little wooden bowling pins to play bowling carroms too. I just thought the colors were great. Will definitely do something with these down the road.
They were stored in this well worn but lovely vintage holiday box.
Found some beautiful flowered hankies. I cannot resist these even though I have quite a collection. They just seem like the ultimate bargain for such loveliness. I am going to make some pretty cards with these.

One World One Heart Winner!
This little Irish lass is going to LemonyRenee of the blog Of Lemons and Honey. Check out her blog...the writing is fabulous and I am so glad she won. Hope she enjoys her.

Thanks to everyone who visited my blog over the past few weeks. I hope you make a return visit really soon. I enjoyed my magic carpet ride and discovered some wonderful new blogs. But I am going to roll up my carpet for a while. I'm pooped and the dust bunnies are taking over.

Little Sitters

Here are some dolls I recently finished. They are weighted "sitter" dolls that I made after being inspired by some on the Gritty Jane workshop. They are more primitive than I usually do but were fun. I weighted them with little bags of PEI sand.
I like the way they can perch around the house in places where you would least expect them.
