Adventures with Sea Shells/Rocks

This was one of my finds on my thrift store run on Saturday. Aren’t they great? I just love the boxes as well, I have a thing for vintage illustrations. Adventures with Sea Shells has both the specimens to look at and the book. Unfortunately the Adventures with Rocks is missing the book, but the kids are still loving the rock and mineral specimens and we have several other books where they can look up the information. They were both a steal at $1 and 50 cents (because of the missing book), and the kids (and I) are really having fun with them. On a side note, I did get some of my braces off on Thursday (the receptionist was as sweet as could be), though they were only the back ones that you can’t see anyway. One more week and I get the rest of them off, wohoo! Hope everybody had a great weekend, anyone have anything exciting going on this week? Just more of the usual here.

    What a fabulous find- cool treasure!

    Your finds were good, when my son was young he had something similar with fossils. On a different note I thought I would try one more string bag and I was going to use the pattern you used for your last red bag. I’ve had a look at the pattern but I wondered if I need to do 3 chain at the beginning of each new row? The pattern doesn’t say to but the book I’m using to teach myself to crochet says that I should. Help! Thanks

    Sue, just keep going round without adding the 3 chain. You are working in a spiral as opposed to different rows. I e-mailed you in a little more detail, let me know if I can help some more.

    Wow what an amazing find!! You just don’t find that sort of things in shops in the UK, and if you did they would have hoiked the price right up.
