Vintage Find!!!

Sometimes it pays to check out your local Vinnies (thrift) store...I popped in today hoping to find a mirror, but was delighted when I came accross these Vintage patchwork curtains. 2 full length lined (and matching) patchwork curtains for only $3!

and this one has a all know how I love birds!!!

The dress that Sophia is now wearing I purchased from Vinnies was once a serviette! So sometimes it even pays to think outside the square at what these little vintage finds can also become!!!

Bye For Now!

lovely curtains, what are your plans for them?

Oh such a find! And such a cute dolly dress too! Are you thinking ahead to a granddaughter and the treasures she will find at your house! First the dolls and later a splendid amount of linens and such created by her gram! So special!

Beautiful curtains. The dress out of the serviette is a wonderful idea & the motif just the perfect size. Tracee xx

Hello Lisa,

Those curtains were a great pick up. Are you going to use them for curtains or have you another idea. Love the dolly outfit, just perfect.

The crochet in the previous post is stunning, I can imagine people sitting at your table touching and admiring it.

happy crafting.
