I had a few things I needed to get done today and Froggie was off work so we decided to do our errands together and maybe hit a thrift store or two. We picked a good day for it. I picked up some nice little treasures today.
These are 4 of the 5 aprons I snagged today. My favorite is the one the on far right. They all look vintage with the exception of the one at the bottom. It's not a very pretty fabric but it's cute once you get it all tied up. I'll have to get Ms Thang to model it properly in the daylight.
I also got lucky with some fabric. None of them are really big pieces but each one is plenty big enough for a small bag or other small project. I'm still in the practicing stages so I don't need anything big at this point.
I definitely see this as a small tote bag. I love the print. It has a serious country feel to it and I couldn't resist. I paid $1.00 or less for every one of them. I love a bargain. :P
I have absolutely no earthly idea what I will do with these. I found two of these little handkerchiefs in mint condition...except for the creases. They're so pretty and they satisfy my love of vintage so of course I grabbed them, too. Any ideas on what to do with them?
One more little goodie...not sure if this one is a handkerchief or a scarf but it was too cute to pass up. I loved the little strawberry design and not until I got home and inspected everything did I see the cute little snails. Another one that I have no idea what to do with. For a whopping 25 cents...it was worth snagging. :)
This is the other apron I got today and then decided to give to Froggie. She loves green (frogs) and I thought she should have this one since it's such a pretty shade of green. I'm also thinking maybe she'll get the "apron bug" too if I force this one on her. :P It has green apples on the pocket and the price tag still attached. She was crazy....I mean...NICE enough to model it while waiting for school to let out.
Big Thanks! to Froggie for the sewing goodies she brought me today. I'll post photos soon. She gave me and my Mom a ton of sewing stuff she had from her family members...the cases and all! I was pretty shocked that she meant for us to keep it. Thanks, Froggie. That was a super, awesome thing for you to do!!
I'm off to go digging through all the dewing stuff....I have no idea what she's got in there.
