Below is evidence of true friendship. Dianne found this beauty first, but decided not to buy it and passed it to me... (she said she picked it up in the first place because it made her think of me... awwwwwwww....) Anyways I love this vintage tablecloth and put it to use last eve. for my girlfriends to enjoy as well.
The photo below is of a vintage 100% cotton twin size sheet. I can't tell you how soft this is... I love the colour blue, and for a measley $1.50 I brought it home with me. I'm debating on using it to sew some lounge pants from the Amy Butler In Stitches book, or maybe use it in a quilt.
This final picture is the quilting fabrics I bought for $2. The fabrics are in various sizes and I did cull some unwanted ones out before the photo, but I think of this as a great deal to add to my quilting/crafting stash (which, yes, is getting impressive... for those declutterers out there, you will be happy to hear that in order to make room for my latest haul I have removed a couple of bags of assorted fabrics from my hoard. *I made sure my husband got to see all the fabrics I am passing on* mostly because he's quite aware of the yardage that seems to be pouring into the house lately - and lest he thinks I'm getting carried away... okay, I guess I have been a tad carried away with fabricaholism, but hey, it's not like I paid retail prices for any of it...I needed him to see I wasn't going to consume the recently decluttered space in our house with fabric... ;o)
Now I will be honest. I did not show you all my finds from Mon. afternoon with Dianne. Along with the above goodies were vintage notions, vintage patterns and some yarn. It was an was an amazing thrifting day. The very, very best part of it all was that I got to spend a few hours with my girlfriend - sharing, laughing and enjoying catching up with each other as we searched for "treasures" - many of these seemed to be items from our childhood which had us laughing at the memories they evoked. This post may seem to be all about the thrifted finds, but in my mind it's more about the wonderful afternoon I spent enjoying time with my girlfriend.
