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!

Embroidery the beautiful

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:

Hoop foray

These little baby bonsai are hand embroidery, and were thifted for 4$. I love their detail and texture and they were liberated from brown plastic hoops and copious amount of hot glue. I see a lot of hoops used in groups for gallery walls. These are my first hoops and they are a perfect set!

I am loving all the hand embroidery pieces at the thrift store. But there are only so many ways to use them. This blowing aspen was nice!
