the old game pieces look great in those jars...i can see why you are obsessed with them...i never see any when i am out and about, so i would have to pass on a swap with this theme...i hope you get a lot of interest though, it sounds like fun!!!

That would be a fun swap. I don't know if I have enough game pieces to prepare a good swap though... hmmm... something to think about! Let me know if you do.
I love all of your game pieces.

hmmmmm . . .that would mean I would have to shop {insert evil grin here}! Sounds like fun to me!

If you visit my blog to check out my "credentials" you'll have to scroll down a bit to find anything artistic. It's been too busy for creative endeavors this summer. . .sigh . . . but come Fall, my time may be my own again.

All of the above means; even though you don't know me. . . I would be definitely interested if you get one together! . . .wonder what you'll come up with?

They look especially good in those vintage jars...love it. I have been a bit obsessed with vintage numbers and letters in any form lately, but I hadn't even thought of old game pieces!

Hi Mary, I tried to find your email but didn't see it. Just wanted to answer your question from my blog...yes I will carry the magazines but I'm not sure about the books just yet. They have a new book coming out in Sping '10 that I'm sure I will carry. Thanks so much for your interest, it's fun to share the excitement! Have a GREAT weekend!!!!

I'm so glad I found your blog. I have enjoyed seeing all your wonderful finds... so many things I would have purchased if I had found them. LOVE the spool of thread in a recent post. I tried to buy one like that from Goodwill but they said they were using it at the time... sigh.... :(
