Cindy, of Cindy Is Crafty, is hosting a Virtual Thrift Shopping day. And let me tell you, for me, this is the perfect day for doing things virtually.
At 10:00 am, here in "sunny" California, it looked like this:
It is f.o.g.g.y.! Tule Fog is thick and wet. And causes all kinds of trouble. Including school fog delays. Yep, 3 hour school delays, if they have school at all today. That was definitely not in my plans. Oh well, we are safe and warm at home for now.
On to my recent thrifting finds:
(Sorry for the indoor photography. It's the weather, you know.)
Kid's Room magazine (Nathan's got to outgrow his Thomas room at some point, right?), kids craft activity book, Christmas craft book, gardening book, cute vintage (?) postcard, and a newish vintage looking Christmas tin
A full case of brand new, quart size Ball jar. They'll either be used for canning veg from the garden I hope to put in this spring, or be filled with yummy snach mixes to give as gifts.
An unfinished, handmade table runner. A few of the seams are coming apart and it's missing a tassle at one end. It's a bit short for my table, so I think I'll make it into a set of Fall napkins.
More fabric. The yellow furry piece isn't very wide, but should be enough for a ducky stuffie or two.
And finally....my favorite recent find. A pile of scraps. Someone had obviously started on a quilt and not gotten very far before giving all the bits away. Most of these are 2" strips of varying lengths. There are some gorgeous fabrics. I have hopes of using these for a Mile-a-Minute quilt.
That's it for me. What treasures have you found lately?
Now, head over to Cindy's to check out the list of links to other Virtual Thrifting posts.
