I haven't been able to show you much thrifting lately because 1) I haven't been thrifting very much 2) I haven't been very lucky and 3) what I have thrifted is for the Pink & Green swap! Since Jack is at school for a few hours today, I hit the road.
I picked up a pair of these hanging lights. Sure, they are dirty now, but, I am going to clean them up, paint the brassy bits white, and I am positive they will be fantastic! They are heavy, and I think they are fairly old. They are wired with cloth wiring. This one is sitting on a ticking striped sheet I also picked up. I can never have enough sheeting for sewing, and I love, love, love pink and blue ticking patterns.
A very stinky but pretty lavendar quilt. It has a pretty big tear in it (maybe 8 inches long), and I always say I am going to buy them and then cut them up for projects, but I just don't have the heart to do it. All of the quilting and embroidery is hand done, and if it survives the washing machine, it will go in the pie safe with my other quilts.
And an embroidered tablecloth. I don't usually buy the embroidered ones because the printed ones are my passion, but her work is perfect. The back looks as good as the front. I recently saw this bunting on Posy , and maybe those daisy points are destined for some bunting*.
Now if it would just stop raining already. My pictures need the sparkle of the sunshine and so do I!
*If I can find it in me to cut it up. I am really weak about cutting things up. Really weak. LOL It always seems like a waste, but the truth is, it is more wasteful for it to just sit in a drawer.
