treasures

A really good yard sale is sometimes few and far between, but last weekend I ran into two. One was being held by the two ladies who formerly ran my favorite local quilt shop. This is what I came home with...
2 yards of vintage ticking,

a bag of vintage fabric scraps,

a set of cloth napkins,

a pristine linen towel & a flour sack towel with this cute floral border,

a few more yards of some vintage fabrics,

and this great drying rack, which I can't wait to have hanging in my laundry room.
And, at another yard sale I came across these beautiful cement urns (looking a little wet & blotchy from the rain)
for...
...just $3 apiece!!
The perfect ending to my vacation week!
Have a great day everyone and thanks for stopping by.

  7. Oh, if only I had a magic carpet to have tripped over there from the Land of Oz. I loved that ticking. What a treasure trove - and from women you knew. This means that your finds do have a story with them. Be-yoot-ee-full!
