thrift store finds

I love browsing in thrift stores. I haven’t had any luck at the thrift stores in our area, but I always try to visit a few while I’m out of town. Typically I’m drawn to the furniture, where I always find something I just have to have (but can’t, since I’m miles and miles from home!). This time though, I skipped that section completely and went hunting for the quilting/sewing sections. My mom spotted this great selection of old quilting books and magazines –


and then over in the linens section I found this great new flat sheet, just perfect for the backing on some little boy quilt –


Now I must get back to my Christmas shopping! Once again I’ve waited until the last minute and now I’m scrambling… maybe some year I’ll learn to be more prepared! 🙂

Thanks so much for all the wonderful birthday wishes! It was a great day, spent on one of my favorite beaches… with that dish of tasty homemade ice cream (and yes, I did share it!)


(it’s so hard to return to snowy and cold Vermont!)
