Treasures Antique Mall

 Yesterday a went on a little side trip to The Treasures Antique Mall in Springville, Utah.  I met Paula who works at the store and has a great blog called  She was selling all kinds of great items to re-purpose into one of a kind jewelry.  Paula had many of her own handmade jewelry designs in the store that were just beautiful. They were made out of vintage jewelry that she had put together in such a beautiful way.  I should have taken pictures.  The store is the biggest antique store in Utah and there are two of them right next door.   I thought I had died and gone to heaven because this is my kind of place. If you decide to go make sure you go on a day were you have lots of time to browse.  I am planning on making a trip once a month since the store is about 1.5 hours from my house.
I bought some vintage jewelry from $1-4 dollars each and lots of little bottles.  The purple and blue bottles came out of an old ghost town in Utah and would be great to make into art projects. For some great ideas on what to do with these bottles,  Michael de Meng has a great workshop at the art-is-you website at  I bought a bunch of the little purple bottles and will be taking some to Art-is-You to sell in my booth in September.
