Wow, was it ever gray on Monday. Sorry for the bad picture. Here we have a cool basket, vintage bird feeder, batting, victorian couple plaque, big jar, three tier stand, quilted glove box, extra long floral curtain panel, two vintage half slips, little bunny in an egg, vintage baby print and
This funny little thing is actually a Steiff cat puppet. I was super excited to find this as they can be quite collectible. I found this one in a bag at the bottom of a basket at the Salvation Army. Sometimes it pays to dig. The funny thing is, that we already had a little dog puppet from when my husband was a baby. Now he has a friend.
At Goodwill I also found this dress. It's a little big for Manni, but a tiny bit tight on me. But isn't the fabric great? On closer inspection I could see that it is vintage and homemade. Very nicely done. Love the pleated skirt. Maybe if I can drop a few I will be able to wear it this summer.
My thrifting break last week did not include ebay as I found and bought some cute fabric to add to my stash. I am currently going through and cleaning out my sewing room and I will be selling my less favorite fabrics. But, as you can see, I do have a thing for roses fabric.
Close up of the three tickings I got from one seller. You may remember from my last post that I just cleaned out my stash of tickings, but these were so pretty and not ones I already had and a good price. Alright, my name is Lisa and I am a ticking addict.
Isabel found this fabric at the Camas Antique Mall last weekend. I was drooling over it the whole time we walked around and told her if she changed her mind, I would be happy to buy it. She was kind enough to share a couple bouquets with me. Thanks so much Isabel, I love it!This is another shoe bag I found at the Camas mall. I actually saw it in the window while I was waiting in line and when I got in the door, ran and grabbed it. Now I have three and can't figure out where to put them.
On Wednesday I found this on craigslist. Isn't it great? I bought it to resell but am seriously thinking about keeping it. Maybe I'll just keep it a couple months and take it to Farm Chicks. Speaking of Farm Chicks, this week I have actually been working on some projects to take there. I am getting more and more excited and even though I still have a few months, I know that I have a lot to do before I'm even close to being ready. I sure hope to be able to meet some of my blogging friends at the show. For more info you can go to http://www.thefarmchicks.com/.
Today I will be going to Isabel's to work on some sewing projects. Joy's coming too. Should be lots of fun and laughing. Maybe we will even get something done too. I plan on working on a shopping cart liner and some smaller sewing projects. Have a fun weekend! It's the start of our Spring Break so we'll have to do some fun things with the kids next week.
