This morning

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!

Useful things, all about $.99, but I’m trying to not buy stuff I won’t use right away. Oh the thrill of the find!

Thrifty couture

July 10, 2012 § Leave a comment

School clothes and larger sizes are coming up in the thrift store search. This week I found three yards of linen fabric for $3. Shirts from H&M and Target, and jeans from Gap and Children’s Place. All for $9.47. My girl wears size 8-10 at the waist, but I have to tailor off 2-3 inches at the bottom. And she isn’t really chubby! I love these colors.

This gentleman is spacious and very sturdy. He was $10 at the thrift store.

Tea bowls

I adore these little cups, perhaps remnants from a chinese restaurant. I hope to find a whole collection of them over years.

Bag addition

Thrifted for $3, this bag appears never used and is the fourth in my collection of the same bag in different patterns. Someday I’ll probably give them away as favors. The colors and size make them great for little girls.

A very nice set of lamps, crackle finish stoneware, a matched pair. Butter yellow and $12 each. With a new shade, so cute!

Pinterest project-the first of the bunting

April 25, 2012 § 3 Comments

My preferred party decor is strands of yard and strung felt beads, but I do love bunting too. Take a look at all the bunting inspiration on pinterest!

This set of banners was made from a thrifted quilted jacket. $6.

Unique, right? When I cut the lining out the construction was double sided quilted pieces stitched together with raw edges. I cut a template from a cracker box and sliced out my triangles. This coat yielded 43 pennants and over 9 yards of banner goodness. There are a lot of mattress ticking type patterns.

I made it to hang in the master bedroom but it is not quite a perfect fit so I’ve listed it in my etsy shop.
