Thrift Store Finds

Hubby and I stopped at the thrift store today, and I found a few fun things.






I got several yards of this pretty shimmery pink fabric too, for just a couple of dollars.

I found this sweet duvet cover for $5, and bought it thinking it would be great to cut up for some projects. But, then when I laid it on the bed to take pictures.....I'm thinking, I like it on our bed. (lousy picture lighting in the bedroom)

Look at the pretty crochet on it.


And the green is a perfect match to our pale green walls.


And then, while we're being rung up at the store, the woman behind me in line, says she has this mirror in her car, and asks if I would be interested. So, hubby and I went and looked. She gave it to me!
It was a good day to leave the house!

I started a new project last night. I'm trying my hand at a fabric book.


So far, I'm having fun with it.

Hi, Debi! ♥

Ooo-la-la! What thrift store do you go to? ☺ To be given that mirror... Wow! I've seen some like that but they always need paint and I always have too many "to paint' projects waiting for me!

I want to try a fabric book someday, too. I hope you show us when you're all finished. Have you seen Cheryl's fabric books?

What wonderful things you found at the thrift store and what a generous gift that lovely lady bestowed upon you. The frame is beautiful.

Just seeing all of your lovely new things has given me the itch to do a little antique shopping today... :-)

PS Sorry I haven't been by much. Adjusting to summer with two kids at home. Hubby works out of town during the week, so I'm pretty busy =) I'm doing blogging at night nowadays.
