With my first leather encounter fresh on my mind, I decided to try the thrift stores again in search of more. Maybe I was searching at the wrong time of year before, but I did happen upon some leather this time. I found a mini skirt for $25. Yes, twenty-five, not $2.50. Um, I don't think so! Seriously? It was a thrift store!! That skirt stayed on the rack along with the others which were just as expensive. (but I did find a too big cute printed twill skirt that I may or may not cut up for something else)
Naturally, my attention turned to the sheets. Yeah, I know that I don't need any more sheets, but I can't help it. I may have struck out on the leather, but I found some beauties in the linens.
Oh my heavens - that pink one! The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw that was Lilly Pulitzer. Wouldn't that make the perfect Lilly-esque tunic? I know I've tried sewing clothes out of my linens before and ended up not wearing them because it felt weird to me, but I don't think I'll have that problem with this one. Did I mention that it's a king size flat sheet in perfect condition? Love.
And this green one, I love it too. I don't know if I'll be wearing this one, but I can certainly see a large bag made from this one. Maybe with some bamboo handles...to bring to beach while wearing my pink tunic.
I would have been perfectly happy with just those two, but I couldn't leave those other pretty ones all alone, could I? The yellow one is just plain sweet and super soft. I'm thinking it would make a nice night gown for miss a or pajama bottoms for Lil. I already have the blue flowered one in my collection, but there's always room for more.
For a non-linen focused buying trip, I don't thinkI did too bad!
