Thrifting Wednesday

June 19, 2008 at 10:53 am 7 comments

When your sock progress is slowly (very slowly) coming along, you need to go thrifting.  Almost done with the first one, just have 3 more inches to go.  But it’s those 3 inches that seem to be taking forever.  Luckily, I casted on for the second sock and almost having the ribbing done.

Today I thought I would share with you yesterday’s thrifting loot.  Not a good of a thrifting day as I was hoping for but did manage to get quite a few goodies.

New placemats for the dinner table.  They are so cute and have been handmade.  We’ll see just how long these will last on the table with 2 girls (and a husband, and myself) who are not very careful eaters. 

Two very cute aprons.  The one on the left is going to be worn when I hang clothes out on the line.  It has nice deep pockets, perfect for a hoopla of clothes pins.  The one on the right is now my new favorite one.  Running neck and neck with my current favorite one.  On the downside, this new one don’t have pockets, or a place to put a dishcloth, so I think my favorite one is safe.

Some fun and funky fabric.  The top one will be used sparingly (there’s not alot there) it small little projects such as purses or something.  The bottom one is some beautiful fun floral polyester knit fabric that I’m hoping to make my favorite pattern out of it.

Last but not least, is this cute dutch linen tea towel that I found.  It won’t be used as a tea towel around here (a little bit on the rough side), but I thought it would look cute on the coffee table in the living room (paired up with some of my other thrift store finds).

    The blouse pattern is adorable and I think the pattern print that you’ve chose will work very nicely and be very pretty 🙂
    Love all your thrift store finds. Amazing that you can find such good items. Before I married my husband and when I lived back home, I used to go to yard sales and find pretty good things… It was a lot of fun.

    I’ve made the pattern before Lisa, and I’ve loved it. This however is a knit fabric, so I think it will be ok. We’ll see.

    I tell ya, it’s almost like an addiction. I don’t like todays styles for the home anymore. I think that’s why I love finding things from thrift stores for my home. Plus, 99% of the things I get remind me of my Grandmother.
