You all know I have the thrift store bug. As I told you in my last post I took a little detour of some more thrift stores on Tuesday. I made a haul!!! My hauls are much different than most unless you are a fabric hoarder like me. I will be honest I am actually using up some of my fabric. YES!!! I am actually cutting it believe it or not. The things I am making from it are not even staying here at the homestead. They are going on to better homes where others can admire their beauty. Which then leaves empty spots to refill. AND when I can refill them for less than half of their original prices per yard why not? Yes that is the hoarder talking lol. It's called justification of spending money on fabric. This truly is my weakness. (sigh)
Anyway, I'll show you some other things I got too. The 4 napkins will be great for Spring and Fall decorating. The towel I can leave out year round. I like using textiles instead of doilies in my decorating.
The top thing is a repro tin cup. Again another mold for wax pouring. I think it is awesome!
Bead garland. The red ones may be for sale. I think I already have some in my Christmas stuff, but I'll let you know for sure. The top are "pearl" beads and the bottom are silver. I'm thinking I need a Christmas tree in my bedroom to use these.
Now you will not believe how much fabric I got. These are not just pieces. They are at least a yard if not more. This is all from Goodwill.
These reds are much darker than they appear.
I'm thinking I need some doves made out of the grey/white on the right.
All of this fabric I got at a different thrift store. They are different sizes. Some less than a yard and some more.
Not sure you can see it, but 3 1/2 yards for $7.00!!!! What a steal!!!!!
I bought some Christmas tree lights and a couple ornaments. I will show you some of them another day. I need to repaint them first. I will tell you they look very folk arty. I know arty isn't a word, but you know what I mean :) lol. I also got some more pewter and fake pewter that I will show you another day too. I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to display all of it first. I like it in the red corner cabinet, but I now have way too much for that. I'm actually in a bit of a quandary because I'm trying to decide if pewter belongs in the living room. When I see pics of other homes normally it's in the dining room. I like it there BUT I have another collection that is growing redware and yellow ware. Right now I have those in the living room, but am thinking they belong in the dining room too. I don't have space for both in the dining room and sometimes I don't like seeing them both together in the same room either.... (sigh). What to do... what to do???
Well, my friends I need to get all this stuff put away before everyone comes home. That way I can say I've had it all along. LOL. I also need to pick up my daughter from the food pantry where she is volunteering. This is part of her class at the career center. So, stay tunes I'll be back with a few more things after the weekend is over.
