It's tag time!
It was a busy day in Mayberry today. I made a trip to the bank early this morning, baked Mom's birthday cake for her party on Saturday and decorated it this evening and stuck it in the freezer. I put in a stamping order, took a nap :-D, cooked supper and made up 3 plates of food to have for future dinners. I baked banana muffins and I made brownies to take out to Di's tomorrow. We have a play date planned. So all in all it was a pretty productive day!
I am using my new to me, old metal flower frog for the first time today that the tags are sitting on. I have been wanting one for some time as that is the way most card makers take pictures of there cards and it looks pretty cool. I was able to find some on Ebay and bought a batch. If you would like one....email me or leave a comment, and I will sell you one. I bought a batch of 5 as it was the only way to get a decent price on them. The individual ones were very expensive. Probably hard to find. I have been looking for a year or so, and have not seen them any where in my travels. One night I was talking to Corrinne on the phone and some how in the conversation, she mentioned them. I did not know what they were called. Once I found that out, I was able to find them on Ebay.. In the eight years I ran antique stores, not once did I see one of these. We always sold glass flower frogs, so I did not have a clue that these "things" that they were displaying cards on were called "metal flower frogs". A person learns some thing new all the time! Have a good one....Elaine
