$2 Boden shirt. I do love these branded items. First because there is a certain assumption of quality that can be made about the better brands. And second because I love looking through the catalogs that come in the mailbox but choose not to afford the clothes in them. So I really love getting a good brand at thrift store prices.
Also, can you spot the new finished sewing project? Stay tuned!

I didn’t buy anything today at the thrift shop. And have you noticed that when you are looking for something you never find it?
Here is an awesome paddle ball set. I love the graphics. $6.
I might regret not buying these foxes. They were cute and clean and what a lot of work someone did!

I completely love this needlework pattern. Though this embroidery piece is from the 1970s and seems to be quite common, (I’ve found two of these bonsai beauties), the colors are vibrant and the little tree is perky and pretty, especially in this wooden frame. I’ve hung two bonsai on my gallery wall, but this one is for sale.
Here are my bonsai:

Thrifted this week: a Laura Ashley skirt. I seldom have time to try things on while shopping, so clothes for me from a thrift store are a rare thing. This makes me feel feminine and I love the medallion fabric. I’ll make it into a dress for my girly when I tire of it. $6.

I had to. They are just so beautiful, and $1 apiece. Just look at that texture! I like the toile-like horseback scene one. And the one with Roman soldiers. See more of the ties here.

While visiting my parents recently I spent an hour in a really truly junk shop. Exploding overflowing overwhelming piles of all kinds of flotsam. I didn’t find anything I wanted. I could really see anything for all the stuff in the way!
