I'm happy to report that my thrift store trip on Good Friday was a success. I seem to be having luck in that department lately, which isn't always the case, but for now, I'll take it while I can! The first things I came across were these two glass decanters with stoppers. I had to have them because they work perfectly with the cocktail tray I have on the chest in my dining room. Do you spy my thrift store lamp?
The rest was all linens, my usual thing. There are probably finds I'm passing up as I make a beeline to the linens department, but my eye zeros in on them - I can't help it! I couldn't pass up these two neutral colored pillowcases. I have the fern print in green, so it was a treat to find it in another color and in such good condition.
These two sheets are in prints that I already have in my collection, but they're some of my favorites. Also, these were in excellent condition! I love finding a vibrant vintage sheet. I'm thinking about making another attempt at making a dress out of a sheet - the one on the right is one of my all time favorite prints, which I think would be mighty cute as a shift dress, very Lilly-esque. My only concern is that I feel a little too old to pull it off. We'll see....
And lastly, I scored some fabric! The purple print had been made into a wide valance, but there's plenty enough to use for making bags (of course!). The weight of this print is pretty heavy, almost a canvas. The little tulip print is sweet, isn't it? I could totally see making something for Ava out of that. I'm sure Lily would turn up her nose at it, but Ava is still putty in my hands!
***thanks for all your kind words on the previous post, you sure know how to make a girl feel good!! I might just have to pull several names :-)
