What a day! I had been looking forward to today. My sister, Karen (over at Hazell Dell Quilts ) and I were going to go to the Sarpy County Museum to view their quilt display. We get there...and guess what? They are closed on Mondays!! So, we hopped (okay, we drove) over to a little antique shop in Old Towne Bellevue. My neighbor owns it and I haven't been there yet. Guess what? They are closed on Mondays also! So, Karen and I gave up and she headed back home. On MY way home, I passed a little thrift shop I had not been to for quite a few years...hoping maybe they would have some vintage sheets. Historically, it has been a shop I rarely find anything I like. Today, I hit the jackpot!!
I found these cute little embroidered dresser scarves. And yes, the price you see posted is correct!!
|That's right...50 cents!|
|One Nickel! Five Cents!|
I found this lovely vintage Christmas table runner.
|Yup, .20 cents!|
This adorable pillow top.
|This cutie was only .79 cents!|
AND this wonderful little doll quilt.
|Yes, that is right....50 cents!|
Well, like a gambler who longs for more...I stopped at the other thrift shop that was on my way home.
And I found this adorable Dutch shoe pin cushion
Dawn at Collector With A Needle had posted about ones very similar a few weeks ago, and I fell in love with them! I never expected to find one. Oh, and the price? $1.49!! Of course, I do have to supply my own thimble for it!! I have a couple vintage thimbles which don't fit me very well, I think I will put one in it when I display it! I also found a couple of "potential" pincushions, but I will wait until they are completed to post pictures of those!!
I started with this corner:
|Me thinks I have too much stuff!!|
I want it to be where I keep my reading books. At the moment, it has both reading and craft/quilting books. After, one half full black garbage bag and a half full box for Goodwill, I have this:
The opening behind the chair is a closet, which will eventually have a curtain covering it, so it looks more tidy!!
So, onward to tomorrow!! I hope to get the garbage bag and box FULL!!
I hope you are keeping your pieces together. Mine are slowly getting contained!
