Hello friends...Happy to have you here again!
So...If you have been visiting me during the last few weeks, you know I have been doing ALOT of painting.
I feel like I haven't been out of my kitchen in ages.
I decided it was time for a field trip and yesterday was Wednesday. You know what that means....a much deserved road trip to my favorite Salvation Macy's (Army). On Wednesdays everything is 25% off....everything!
Everyone in the car!!!!!
I am always on the lookout for great looking men's dress shirts for my couture aprons. I love this pink and yellow plaid .
I had to chuckle just a little when I pictured my husband in this purple and white stripe....NOT!
Whats with the blanket stitch on the collar and cuffs...slightly goofy, don't you think?
Then I headed to the ladies skirt department.
I found some gorgeous beauties.
Love the worn tan and blue stripe and that very cool smocking.
This salmon pink drop waist skirt screamed "Apron" to me. I like finding these drop waist style skirts because I can incorporate the detail of the waist into my apron...maybe a cute youthful babydoll style.
I swooned over this very full white embroidered skirt..already trimmed in pink at the waist and just look at that embellished hem!!! Claire, Annette...are you loving this?
|pay no attention to the lavender foot at the bottom of the photo|
I found this adorable strapless sundress and immediately saw an adorable patchwork full apron in it's future.
I can never leave without digging through the linen racks. Again...not disappointed.
I found four beautiful vintage pillowcases. Great additions to my apron stash.
Of course a trip to Salvation Macy's is never complete without a stop at the housewares section.
I giggled with joy when I spotted a Nippon porcelain teacup and saucer set for $2.00. I searched and found five sets...so for $10.00 I think I did ok. The hallmark on the bottom dates them possibly as early as 1911.
I thought of you, Annette, when I bought these.
I really liked the design on the rim of this pretty cream plate which I will display on the recycled plate rack I showed you here.
So that was my afternoon excursion and I really enjoyed the little break from painting.
Now back to the kitchen!
Until next time....be kind and stay creative.
PS...on the way home from thrifting, my son texted me "want to meet for dinner tonight?"
Getting excited, I texted back "Sure...where do you want to go?"
He texted back "I was thinking your place"
Guess I'm cooking.....kids you gotta love them ;-)
