Thrifty Gal

Which is not the same as being cheap. Although I am that, too. After being bitten by the vintage sheet bug (more on that later) I've been using some of my free time to browse thrift stores. The thrill of the hunt is so fun. And finding some "treasure" is just a bonus. Here are some of this week's finds:

I found these decorator samples at one store. They're all 26x26" upholstery weight fabrics. Each had 3 or 4 colorways. The first one I have two of. The last one is corduroy. I know I just saw something fabulous made out of corduroy out there in blog land. Wish I had bookmarked it. Got any good project ideas for my tapestries?

The cat, Paws, I already had. But I did pick up the argyle cashmere sweater that I made into a pillow. And then there's this pile o' zippers. I'll often find a great little project that I'd like to whip up, but alas, no zip. These little guys will last me for a bit!

Great finds! (stopping by from the sheet swap)

Also, stopping by via the sheet swap. Those sample would make nice sturdy purses and totes.
I wish we could shop together, I have the feeling we'd be quick friends.
