Sweet Score Wednesday!

Ha, well originally I was going to have a "Sweet Score Thursday" post every week...since, I seem to have dropped the ball on that....we will simply have "Sweet Score" posts when I get lucky at the thrift store!
This week, I hit the jackpot! I purchased a baggie of assorted wood goodies (If you have a "Saver's" in your town, then you know the random baggies that I speak of). I was so inspired, that I promptly came home to paint these crosses (one is listed on Etsy, and the other two are off to my holiday show):


"Sacred Heart with Eye Cross" ~Sold~

I also purchased an all wood bread box, that I was happy to pay the asking price for...but, was magically 50% off when I got to the register! I love to paint bread boxes, and now have accumulated 4 of them - need to get to those. ;) A collection of bread boxes tend to take up a wee bit of space in the studio!

Lastly, as I was heading to the register with my goodies, I spied these lovelies having just been put out on the shelf...I practically ran over and snatched them up!
These angels are 15" tall, and are unfinished ceramic, just begging to be painted:



My Etsy shop will be closing on Friday for 2 weeks, and I'm looking forward to holiday time and some leisurely painting. I hope everyone has a magical holiday, and I look forward to reading about your good times! ~♥~ Leila

Those crosses rock!! I also love Savers little goody bags. I am always scoping them out for treasures.

Those crosses are gorgeous, Leila, they really pop with color and are way more spiritual than the typical blah, blah, blah crosses...I love to collect angels and even thought I'm not the best at transforming them, I try to buy ones that are unique. So, looking forward to seeing them have Leila's "brand" on them. Glad you're taking some time off, to rest, relax and enjoy Yule :)
