Hello friends...I have been enjoying my days more, now that I have removed a bit of the blogging pressure I had placed on myself. My man and I spent the holiday weekend working on home improvement projects. He painted the garage door (in 90 degree heat) and I painted some inside walls. I can't wait to have my big 'Reveal' when all is completed.
After dropping off an Etsy order at my local Post Office, I popped in across the street to see if our little ladies auxiliary thrift shop had any treasures. I don't usually have much luck finding items for my aprons, However.....................
Today was a different story. Just look what I found. A large, beautiful and hand embroidered tablecloth with dainty cutwork. It is a pretty peachy pink color in a linen fabric. All hand made right down to the rolled hem...and spotless!
I also found 6 matching napkins! Don't adjust your screen...that IS a 10 cent price tag!
Fabulous large vintage tablecloth with a fruit motif. I love it's well worn look. This baby is crying out one word.....APRON!!!!
I found two calendar tea towels..this vibrant 1978 (the colors are good clue to it's era)
I am currently working on a bridal themed apron and have been searching for a vintage pillowcase that would work....BINGO!!! I love the fancy work on the hem of this one.
Always on the lookout for vintage plates. Lovely gold rimmed and handpainted dinner plate by Kirk
Also found two matching dessert bowls. I think they will make great magnetic pin holders.
I found more lovelies for my bridal apron..3 yards of vintage lace and a wonderful tulle and lace edged table runner. The second I saw the runner I thought of a bridal veil. The rolled up tan and white stripped item is a great little strap belt that will make a great tote bag strap. Waste not, want not!
I was very happy with my thrift haul and just think...the total for all of this was $20.06!!!
What's your favorite item to hunt for????
Until next time....be kind and stay creative.
