Woyww.. holiday time!

Morning campers! ooh sorry crafters, got my c's mixed up there! Rise and shine, it's Wednesday again, and time for Mrs Dunnit's jollies! I hope you have your dark glasses on for the sun today, as it is a bit shiny, sorry, messy in my room! The aftermath of a very busy week, no time to clear up, just piled high! Lots of boxes of *stuff* underneath, and swinging to the back of me, lots more! For the eagle-eyed of you there is a gorgeous original paper bag from Ryvita, and this is filled with original never used shiny milk bottle tops from the fifties , I think... a bargain in Rye when I was there last week, and now just to know what to do with them! Suggestions on the postcard you send me from your holiday!! Also peeping out from a corner of one of the photos, is the lovely bag I won on Nick's blog a couple of weeks back.. love it, use it every day.. a new bag for an old bag! sorry that should be lady, not bag!!
We have had a brilliant week so far here at Artistic Towers, launching a new blog for the Creative Team, new stamps, and new Guest Designers. Lucy has made a fab heart album for the blog today, and if you get time do pop in and say hello.
I am so hoping to come on holiday to your place today, as last week, I was very remiss, and didn't go to many places! I promise I will be on my bike cycling to yours this week:)) If you have never heard of our Wednesday holiday, then pop in to Mrs Dunnit's on your journey, and be amazed!
Have a very Creative day!

Fab pics and I wish I had half of what I spy!
The RyeVita bag should be a page in a "pocket book" set amongst other vintage style bags and the tops can be bellies or emboss them.
Keep at it... you are going great guns and thanks for the peek,
Jo x

Sheila said...

Love your stuff!! Great pics.

peggy aplSEEDS said...

bottle tops, hmmm. they sound lovely but I have no idea what you can do with them. how about ice resin with a vintage design on the inside of the bottle top, and it will be a two sided vintage pendant.

Artyjen said...

Love the antique find :) Why can I never find such good stuff? LOL

is that a little pile of grass on your desk? have you left a patch uncovered long enough for undergrowth to take hold???

Milliesmarvels said...

Wow! Very busy desk and work room! You made me smile as only a crafter would get excited about an old paper bag full of old milk bottle tops :-) I always buy bags of scraps of lace, ribbon and old thread from car boot sales and charity shops and get really excited at what I find in there and most people would throw it away!

jodpea said...

Wow, I didnt kno Ryvita were that old! I was thinking some way of stringing the bottle tops together - some kind of jewellry perhaps? - but if they are unused it seems a shame to poke a hole thru em!
