|Vintage thermos bottle, sweet!|
As promised, my loot from the first rummage sales of the season...
If offered I always take the $5 bag option, unless things are really picked over and not worth getting a bag at all. The two sales we attended this weekend both had great stuff. This last minute addition... a plaid thermos... couldn't believe it was still on the table. Still with the glass liner intact, I've seen them used as vases at picnics, perhaps a barn wedding?
... not shown, several yards of white muslin. That little floral will be a pillowcase for our bed.
I did save one cut of the Raggedy Ann fabric for sweet p. At Kristen's baby shower she received a throw and doll from my pal Kathy for Penny. Our little one loves having her own pillow on our bed for sleepovers, and even knows where the new pillowcases are stashed. She's gonna love this one to match her doll and lovely throw.
Hanging out at the sewing table till the bag sale started, I was able to scope out all the notions. Pinking shears, curved applique scissors, binding, elastic, crochet thread...
I have friends that rock the charming look and always think I would like to try. I always wanted to be a hippy. I was too young in the sixties, now I might be too old at 60!
More lace, six vintage napkins, five yards of fusible interfacing and a Guitar book from the seventies I will send Mike for his studio. Some items were not included in the five dollar bag. I spent $1 for the napkins and $2 for the lace. The guitar book was free.
Has anyone made anything with vintage damask napkins? There are so many out there and they are lovely.
I've used one as a base for a pillow, guess I'll have to check pinterest for ideas.
Well, as they say, that's all folks. For now. The rummage season has just started.;-) Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments. Enjoy this beautiful day.
