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 bird...you 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!

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.
