Timing is Everything

Recently I was bemoaning the fact that I had not come across my favorite "thrift" items. Well, timing truly is everything....I happened to drop into one of my local thrift shops on a whim and look what I found!

Some lovely hankies


Pristine embroidery work



Cute apron


Pillowcases for the Guest Room...


One of the staff was literally putting this one out - it needs to be cleaned but I was happy to take it.

Love the crocheted Roses....


All in one visit! AND I never spend over my limit.... I always wonder about the person who originally owned these items - or put so much work into making them. I especially get drawn to some of the crochet work as I feel I should "adopt an afghan" - but there are so many to choose from I prevent myself - I certainly don't have room for them all. Hope you enjoy seeing my most recent treasures...
