Sun was shining yesterday and I was without a car. No biggie we live off Mainstreet so Z and I headed out. First to a little shop that is going out of business. She has beads and they were all 40% off. I picked up a tube of very old orange hearts in a size 4 maybe? The equivilant to several hanks of Czech seed in a wild yellow green color, almost chartreuse, if it came in a pastel. And a few apple green turquoise bits to make some earrings, just 'cuz.
After that stop, it was down Mainstreet to the thrift store, yup, I got one with in walking distance! It's run by Lutheran church folk and it's great because all the prices are really good. And they have fabric! It's downstairs so I had to Z out of the stroller, she thought that was wonderful, let's just say I got my cardio. I didn't really set out to do a theme but obviously I was in a spring state of mind and the thrift gods and goddesses were smiling. Here's the turquoise set up...
The seersucker is a lovely shade of white and turquoise and there was 1 1/2 yards of it. The napkins are ugly but in a cool way and those glass things are from old electricity poles, can't remember their actual name. They will make great garden art.
The cabbage roses in the back are on a cotton shower curatin, the yellow is 2 1/2 yards of yellow dotted swiss and the soft green are 4 linen luncheon napkins. The mugs are a lovely crazed glaze of green with a hint of cobalt. I really just got them for their pattern. At .50 each, I splurged. I even messed with the image and made something I could try quilting ala Digital Gran. .
So the grand total at the thrift store was $12.00.
This will be it for thrift reporting for now. I have jumped the on band wagon for "Use What I Have" for the month of April. It all started with a little post here. It makes so much sense. I shall be using my stash to create, wanna join me?
