Texture Tuesday – Sheep & Wool Junk Score

Sheep & Wool was hard for me this year.  I made a promise that I wouldn’t buy any yarn (at least not for me – Mother’s Day didn’t count), and I kept it.   But, it was hard – I was like a crack addict under the El at Kensington and Allegheny.  Sigh.

But, I didn’t say I wouldn’t buy anything.

And, I told my husband right up front I was going to hit the junk vendor.  And for under $20, I brought back quite a haul –


So what do we have here – first, a printer’s drawer – someday to be a super cool shadow box.  Then, a Mason’s jar, filled with vintage stamps.   Several spinning wheel bobbins, and a couple of spinning wheel whorls.  Then, I have a tall thing you can’t see, that’s going to be the base of a doll.  Then, there are two long, thin things that I think are for spinning cotton, and then two more wooden tubes, with drips of paint running down the sides – awesome!  

And, here is the Mason Jar, textured up for Texture Tuesday:

This week’s challenge was to use two of Kim’s textures.  Both images have an oldie but goodie – Wet Tile, and both have her new watercolor texture, Oh My.  The first one even has a third texture – a real oldie but goodie – her Antiques Overlay.




So, that’s the junk.

But where are the sheep.

Coming my friends!

    Such a creative image, and wonderful use of textures, Wendy! I love browsing antique shops, all sizes, but especially the ones tucked away in the little towns … also, love the local 'junk' sales! Oh the treasures I've found! Bought some spinning wheel bobbins and am wanting to make small lamps with them … I saw that done and they were adorable! That's my DIY project for the summer, I'm thinking!! 🙂 This is my first time here from Kim's site, and your blog is so sweet! Have to say, I love your banner, as well! Have a great week! 🙂
