Here  are just a few pictures of how we look at
 Friendship Farm Antiques this holiday season.

Please stop by to see the new lampshades, pillows and wonderful small
 antique treasures that Judy has recently brought in and more ribbons
 and "things" for those altered art projects that I have added.

Also, I brought in some vintage Xmas ornaments and
tags and old Christmas cards and some not so old items.

                             Vintage Christmas ornaments and the great Merry Christmas banner.

                                                              (This is a gift box)

Chalk Markers

Just got my order of Chalk Pens that are so fantastic!  You will love them if you write on any
blackboard, glass, china, any non-porus surface and there is no chalk dust!  Clean up with a
damp cloth or  the clean up marker to make it even easier!   They are in Tricia's Ribbons
at $6.95 each and so worth it!

A friend taught me a new way to use Distress Stamp Pads and masking tape. 
 Very fun!  The pictures don't show how nice the glossy card stock really looks.
 But so many people have asked for a note card for a guy...well this blank note cards 
fit the bill.  Easily a simple note for anyoneThey will be are in the shop at $3.50 each.

I now have these great metal pieces (sold individually) in the store.  They can be tinted using 
Adirondack Alcohol  Inks (check out for instructions) for an aged look or used just
as they are for your altered art or jewelry.  I have more unique and one of a kind vintage 
pieces and other new metal pieces as well.
