Tuesday's Display Chain - Recently Acquired

I've never joined in Misi's Display Chain before today, but have a couple of cute things that I've just acquired.  This little beeswax chick is perfect for my latest addiction - blackened beeswax.  I bought him from a gal on Etsy.  His little collar and rusty bell are perfect. 

From the same crafter, I bought this winged angel.  She used more rusty jingle bells on this.  I haven't found the perfect home for her yet, just hung her on the wall to take the picture. 

Lately when I've been primitive shopping, I've bypassed the "flashy" things and have been purchasing greenery to use.  I really like the plain, plain, plain look with a little greenery mixed in.  This little wreath is perfect for my very limited spring decorating.  I need to find something to put inside it - yeah an excuse to go shopping again!
The last thing that I recently bought - on Saturday - I can't show you and it's not prim at all!  We finally found a prom dress.  After May 7th, you can come back and see a photo.  Shopping for that dress has occupied several of our weekends.  If you haven't been in the market for a prom dress lately, I can tell you that there are lots of them out there that are not modest in any way.  For the girls (and their parents) who don't want tummy skin showing it can be a challenge.  

Have a great week.  ~Ann
