Like the good old days
Saturday morning before our big adventure with Thomas, we went to a city wide yard sale. It was good. It will probably turn out to be my best haul for this summer. (Particularly if gas hits $6/gallon as predicted.)
I bought nearly all the fabric she had at the very first sale we stopped at. Gobs and gobs of vintage 1940-ish roses everywhere. There were 2 panels of these curtains;
Nearly 9 yards of this print, which reminds me of my tablecloths;
the sweetest vintage duvet cover with tiny roses all over (it needs to be mended on the bottom, but I have to get the sewing machine repaired still);
and several pieces of smaller fabrics like barkcloth and decorator weight fabrics.
So good. Really.
I also picked up this tiny cornucopia vase (I had just been admiring Barbara's small collection );
an old hatbox covered in wallpaper (all of my pictures are leaning lately, a bit bothersome!);
and something that made me squeal, a big pile of nutcups for crafting.
And there was more. One is being painted right now and I will try and get the rest onto Flickr as soon as Jack stops launching cat toys in the living room. LOL
I had better go get out the duct tape. :-)
