I admit it. I have issues. When I shop (antique stores, thrift stores, garage sales) all my purchases end up "matching". It’s like I go shopping with a subconcious theme in mind and when I set all my new finds out when I get home, they all look great together. Its kind of a strange phenomenon. So, last Thursday, my mom and I hit a few thrift stores and the local Kmart and once again, I have color coordinated thrifting success….
I don’t like gloating, but…..the 39 piece dish set was $30 and because it had a black tag and it was black tag day it was half price and I only paid $15 for it! I know its not a really good set of china or anything but its so pretty! And the two little white birds were 99 cents for both of them. I couldn’t resist the glass bowls because they’ll be so pretty with homemade cranberry sauce in for Thanksgiving. A very good haul, I must say….(anyone remember Ed Grimley on Saturday Night Live?)
I also got vintage wallpaper samples that I can’t wait to cover boxes with. They’re from the ’50’s and in great condition. Now I just need to find the time to actually do something with them….
And, last but not least, the felted flowers…..
So….Here’s to a weekend full of knitting by the fire, football and maybe a James Bond movie. Hope your weekend is just as good!
