More purchases from Renningers!

Hello, friends! How has your week been so far? I am finally going through my other purchases from my trip to Renningers last weekend. If you missed my last post about the awesome shabby white window frame I brought home, go here.  I love this pile of ephemera too. The envelopes were mostly addressed to a Mrs. Ann Offerman c/o Mercy  Hospital in Pittsburgh. Many say "Maternity Ward."  Isn't that sweet?!


I found some great tins, buttons, rhinestone pieces, lace and trim to play with in the studio. The pictures speak for themselves.  I also found some great vintage hardware for my assemblage projects. Take a peek.


I have some projects in the works that required "wings."  These pieces are ideal. Thank you so much for stopping by. I appreciate your follows and enjoy reading your comments so much. I'm still working on something special for my next giveaway. Stay tuned!  By the way, did you see my new button at the top left? Please feel free to grab it for your site.  I've also created a Rusty Rooster Shop blog with the help of Karen Valentine. No merchandise yet, but one step closer.  So many wonderful things going on here.  Thank you all so much for your support and friendship.  Linking up to these parties -

  15. Hi Vicki,

    One look at your header and I can see we have a lot in common? How can our paths not have crossed before! Thanks for visiting my blog, signing up to follow yours.

    You found some great treasures, you know I bought a door last summer just for the hardware, guy wouldn't sell me the hardware so I walked away with the whole door!!

    Now my family of course thought I was crazy but I know you'll get it:-)
