Thrift Store Goodness

I do believe this is my PRIZE find for the week....
a handmade quilt...for $6.00!!!!
No method to the madness.....right up my alley!!!

I actually had a lady chasing me around the thrift store
asking me if I found the quilt there...well, DUH...why would I be wandering
around the store w/ a quilt on a day it was 80 degrees outside....
HELLLLOOOO!!!


Very vintage hat....that goes with the
thrifted baby afghan...
that goes with the PROM DRESS my
oldest daughter made...
that goes w/ the vintage locket....
To make a very lovely display on my
sewing dummy.....I really need to name her.
Hmmmm....Petunia? Lily? Hyacinth? Rose?

My laundry room is a sherbet orange (NOPE, I'm not afraid of COLOR).
While thrifting, I found these delicious pillowcases for $1.00!



Just look at how they match!!!


This is an old popcorn tin. I spray painted it and added UPPERCASE LIVING letters. I am in the process of adding another one for birdseed. I also want to put a kitchy knob on top...just haven't found one that was really speaking to me yet.

I have those same pillowcases in blue....and they're on the extra pillows on my bed.
I think they use to make pillowcases thicker--more durable years ago.

My Mamaw used to have that same sheet set. I still remember what my mom's old room looked like before Mamaw repainted and redecorated. It was orange, kinda like your laundry room, with an orange and yellow shag carpet rug, that bedding on a canopy bed and lots of those flowers. What fun finds! Maybe you could help me find ways "recycle" some of my junk!
