No Foolin'

April 1st today, and I have some progress pics and some finds I got at an antique shop this week.  First up, progress pic of Ichabod-- which the filling in of the words is taking forever.  I wanted to be done with him last weekend, and here it is another whole week has gone by and still, it isnt done.  Well, if I wasnt out wandering the streets and taking in all the local antique shops, perhaps I would have more to show. 

No complaints though, I am further then last weekend!  I am really enjoying the fabric too, I cant imagine at this point what I would ever use this color again for, and I cant say never either. 
 Up first are 2 super finds, the bottom pair from Germany $4.00 and the top with marking Solingen on it for only $2.00!!!!  Can you even.   Plus, they look great on Swamp :)

The other great find was this enormous pewter thimble (over 2" tall)- which on the side reads "Only a Thimble Full"  and with some research, it is really a shot glass!!  I added a quarter to the side to show you perspective.  No Foolin' !!!!!!!


  1. Love your Ichabod! And your finds are so nice -- love the shot glass!

  2. Oooooh, you got such bargains! I LOVE craft scissor. These look in great shape.
