Thrifted Treasures

I had the opportunity to visit one of my favorite thrift stores today and what a good day to visit it was. Although I was there to look for crafting supplies (they have a nice, big selection - especially of fabric), I found a few other things as well. I promised myself I wouldn't pick up anymore ceramic pieces from thrift stores or rummage sales, but I just couldn't help myself with these. Above is a vintage Relpo daisy vase. Below is a Pearl China Co. swan. I love them.

My big score was this embroidery kit. Below is the owl.

Here are partially finished flowers.

Here are the pictures from the package.

Here are my fabulous fabric finds - I'm using the white for an embroidery project I have planned and the plaid for the girls' quilts project I will start after finishing the doll quilts. The pink is Swiss Dot - need I say more? The blue I'm not sure about yet. It's heavy so I have to unroll it and see if it's home decor weight or just a lot of unwashed fabric rolled together. It fits in with my "stash", so I'll find something to do with it.

Lastly, E's treasures. This is what my sweet and patient little shopping partner picked out. I can't believe I didn't have to talk her out of another stuffed animal or junky game. She's a smarty pants!

The embroidery is gorgeous- it's got that seventies style that I really love.
