Sometimes I get all shaky… panicked, knots in my belly. Then I know I have to get to the thrift store quick. I become obsessed with all the dirty musty treasures that are out there for the taking and I’m not taking them. My husband is very understanding of my thrift disease and when I get a nasty bout of it he goes to great measures to help me out. Like going into work 2 hours late or begging rides off coworkers so I can have the car. Even Oscar was cooperative and spent the whole thrift trip gnawing on the plastic ladder of a little fire engine instead of whining and tantruming. Here are my finds.
Some awesome fabrics…
I love the mod black and white pod-like flowers on top of the other bright primary floral
This will make a very cute doll dress
I LOVE this one!
date on selvage is 1970
red, navy and white – the color scheme of my youth. I can never resist it.
fun decals to send out with packages
This adorable vintage 70s little girl dress/top/smock has a big green ink blob on it but I thought it’d be so cute as an art smock for a little girl. I originally grabbed it for the fabric but it’s so cute it’d be a shame to cut it up. It’s a size 7. I don’t know kids sizes at all. Stephanie – maybe for Mia?
Baby girl’s knit dress with little kitty on it. I can’t decide if it is cute or scary.
an embroidery book that has pretty cute patterns. Jen – I thought maybe you’d like it?
patterns I could not resist… crocheted pot holders (I’ll have to find a good home for this since I can’t crochet for crap) and an apron pattern – check out the boy apron – woot!
and a little something for Tim
I’m calm and happy. for now.
