Thrifty Adventures...

The news said it's going to be below zero tonight. When it's this cold, I usually like to stay home and bake or read or sew (oh yeah, or blog surf): anything except going out in the cold, for sure.
But I had errands to get done today. And luckily, my business took me near my favorite thrift shops  : )
I found this fabulous vintage 40s barkcloth curtain. Aren't the colors perfect?
And while I usually consider it bad form to share prices, I have to brag about this one:
I'm seeing visions of vintage handbags dance in my head. Oh, I moved my sewing machine to my shop, but need another at home!
This is another little vintage curtain valance. The aqua and brown flowers are flocked! I can just imagine this ruffle deconstructed and added as an embellishment to one of my vintage slip dresses.
Don't even look at the next picture if you're the jealous type....

I know. I told you not to look.
Then I found these three vintage beauties. The pink stork is going in my Etsy shop later today. The two aqua vases are for a photo shoot and *might* be seen in my next column, then listed on Etsy or put on the shelf at Abigail's.
I also found this church birdhouse with a rusty metal roof. It's newer, but was in the 75% off Christmas section and ended up costing $.63. Maybe I'll paint it.

And last, but not least, I found a 100% wool cableknit vest on the sale rack. I buy wool sweaters to felt and sew little fun projects with.

  1. Score Girl! The fabric is sooo cool. I was out and about also. I had a great time and stuffed my jeep full. Now to get busy on Etsy. So fun, and oh, gotta pay for my new camera.


Thank you for stopping by to see me and what I've been up to. I love, love, love to hear what you have to say.
