I wasn't going to bother going up to the thrift store today, but I needed to hit Jo anns for some fusible webbing.
There is a Savers, on the other side of the road, so it was worth a visit.
Since we were supposed to be in Maine this week and hitting stores there, why not see what fun things I could find at home.
I love kitties, in case you didn't know;) I saw this print and loved the whimsical look. perfect for my kitchen. It is done by artist Linda Spivey. I love the frame too, so if I get sick of looking at it, I can always reuse the frame;)
It seems harder to find the bargain wool, but I did get a wool jacket that is a cashmere blend, perfect for penny projects.
Then I grabbed some linen. I have no idea what it is exactly, but it looks like linen and a friend loves the stuff and wants to make projects with it, so if it is the right type, it is hers;) Every so often, we see an odd item and just have to have it, just because it is neat, lol. I saw the old ruler and had to have it. It is now in the basket of spools in my textile display.
It is so fun to thrift shop, I can get neat things for nothing, my kind of shopping. Tomorrow is another rainy day, so I think we will try some thrifts and consignments at the south end and if it clears, we can walk on the breakers for a bit. Don't forget, for every new blog that you leave a comment, you get an extra chance in the contest.
