From the beaches of Cozumel

"One Family...One Heart".....and most! My hubby & I celebrated our 15th anniversary around Christmas 2011. We traveled back to our honeymoon resort in Cozumel and brought our son Christian (and Grandma & Grandpa of course)! While beach combing for treasures, we found this heart, which was perfect for my mini metal boxes. Christian picked out the quote, I added a few vintage beads and a chunky chain.

Auction treasures & new collections!

My oh my......auctions need to be my new adventure. We usually only go to one a year on Labor Day weekend in Park Rapids, MN. It's outside with lots of room to roam & as I like to call it "dilly dally"! We eat from the food wagon & usually find treasures for all three of us. Last month, we ventured across the river to Moorhead for an auction & this is what I found!

Vintage pins re-purposed into key chains :: charms for my "junky" bracelets.

Vintage keys :: locker pins for necklaces.

A jar of mini sand dollars :: pocket watches :: leather coin purse :: all used for jewelry

Religious rosaries:: religious medallions :: beautiful for bracelets!
