The other day I got the urge to hit the thrift stores. Considering that my luck has been horrible lately, I decided to give it a go anyway. My mojo must still be a bit off because I had not one, but two misses. On my way into store #1, I spied a lady carrying out a pyrex dish like this one. Hmm, I went to the housewares section anyway hoping that I'd find another, but there was nothing. *sigh* I did score some wooden hangers and a cute pillowcase, so it wasn't a lost cause. Those hangers will be perfect for some crochet embellishment, like this. If you know of any other tutorials, please let me know.
On to store #2...
As usual, I start out with the linens. I sift my way through the sheets and came upon this retro shower curtain. It was handmade from two widths of fabric. The writing on the selvage is still clear, which it pretty neat. I love this, I think it would make a cute skirt for Ava or maybe a tote for Lily. A bit disappointed to have not found more, I'm moseying along towards the pillowcases when a lady with a buggy got in my way. I stepped back to let her pass, but I was a bit perturbed. She started going through the selection, I waited, she went ahead, then she spotted some embroidered lovelies. I saw them too at about the same time, but she took them ALL. She was snatching them off the hanger like a thief!! I was hoping that she'd leave me at least one, but no (she may have even given me the skunk eye as I was watching her). Oh well, I guess it wasn't meant to be. At least that cute shower curtain made it home with me.
And now that the weekend is here, all is good :) I'm in the mood for some craft therapy of the baby variety. Hopefully I'll get my chance!!
