Today's Treasures

A few things I found at the thrift stores today -

This is a painted and stencilled piece of wood trimmed with upholstery tacks all along the top.  Someone probably made it for a headboard - maybe single or double size, I'm not sure.  I immediately thought 'gypsy caravan' but that's what I always immediately think.  Maybe over a door or window?  It's quite heavy so not easy to attach to a wall.  I'm just not sure what to do with it but it was $3., so I'll think of something.

A bag of tiny bells to sew on gypsy curtains for my Etsy shop - 50 cents.

3 yards of this ethnic/hippie style fabric.  $6.  I'm thinking comfy wide leg pants.  Maybe a sash type belt embellished with tiny gold bells!

A fancy box with little trinkets.  A no special occasion surprise for our seven year old granddaughter.
