So many heads….and hands….

I love treasure hunting, in thrift stores, yard sales, jumble sales or estate sales and antique shops.                                                Yesterday on the way to the bank with the boys we spotted an estate sale and, because they are as bad as me, we had to check it out!                                                         The ensuing treasure hunting make me late for pretty much everything I had to do through the whole day, but I got some rewards.

Bargains were, a pretty little white bowl which I will use for mixing beads – 50c, some assorted wooden beads (which will most likely always stay in the vintage jar I have stored them in, but I love the colour and shapes of them) – 25c  and a little cartoony doll head – 25c.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          There were an alarming amount of doll parts for sale, all separate and without bodys.  The owner of the estate had either been a doll maker extraordinaire with some spare plastic heads to spare, or she had big plans to begin crafting dolls and alarmingly creepy clowns!

I did purchase a few doll parts for the fabulous ladies at ‘Screaming Mimi’ to work their magic with.                                           Undoubtably the best part was walking home with a tray of random plastic body parts like it was an everyday purchase!
