Ahhh…the joy of finding a good deal, the thrill of the hunt, I’m not sure what it is exactly about garage sales but I LOVE them!!! My children have joined in on the fun too which makes the thrifting so much more enjoyable for me.
Okay, I’ve started collecting pillows that have a needlepoint design on them but I know that’s not what it’s called, so if you know please tell me. 🙂 I found this one for .50 cents.
I cut out the design off of the pillow.
Soaked it in a little detergant and let it hang overnight to dry.
I had fun layering it with some cute fabric….this was done by hand, usually in the evenings after the kiddos were in bed
I’m planning on adding a few buttons that Dancy gave me for mother’s day :). The finished pillow cover was used to cover an existing plain tan pillow I had. I know the pinks don’t go with the reds that don’t match the greens…but I’m loving it!
I also found this totally perfect picnic basket that I spotted immediately! $4.00 people. hellooo?? sold. I’m using it to store my fabric and sewing supplies.
And finally, this little green luggage piece ($2.00). I brainstormed at the sale (since we were the only ones there I didn’t have to “snag” it) about what I could USE this for??
……..our medicine bag! It now Perfectly houses our band-aids, Tylenol, ear drops etc. The kids love it….and litle Hank can’t open it. perfect.
