I was so excited when I found these! I had seen a seller on Etsy selling the whole set and they looked so pretty! They are mini tin tea cups. They are missing their matching saucers and were previously used to hold paint/water so the insides have seen better days. I love the bright colors and the bottom...they just don't make cute things like this anymore! ..Plus they were only $1 each!
I usually avoid buying vintage/ already written on postcards since I don't really know what to do with them but when I came across these I just had to have them! They're tourist postcard books set that open up to about 14 different views (back and front) of the featured attraction. They are all addressed "Daddy to Patty, Becky and Bobby". Initially I was only going to buy one but they were $0.50 each so I got them all! Check out how cheap it was to mail these back then! it's over 11x that price now.
speaking of stamps, I also mentioned www.Yardsellr.com a couple of posts back. I ended up getting 200 international stamps for free! I have finally used up all my free photon$ but it was so worth it.
I hope to incorporate them in my mail art and finish covering one of my mail boxes. What other cool projects are there to do with stamps?
and one last thing...last Friday, my brother wanted to see if anyone actually participated in that whole "Kony 2012" so we went to Claremont Village to walk around and look at what I found! I need to go there during the day when they are open. I want all of them! ...except the chef one, that one was creepy because it's eyes moved. How tacky! LOL!
