Off to the thrift store again


Well, not really - but here are more of my fun finds from past trips. So many of you ask for photos of what I find at the thrift stores - and I'm more than happy to show you some.
One of my weaknesses - little crystal vases - and this tiny one is just 2 1/2" tall.

This single rhododendren flower from Mothers' Day fit just perfectly, but you could barely see the vase . . .


Two seagulls, attached to a pretty stone by some thin bendy wires - they move with the slightest air current - I like the way they bob about . . .

A fairy kissing her baby fairy - cute beyond belief . . .


This gadget is labled - "washcloth caddy" - but I think it is just perfect for carrying my stitching projects out to the little grove for an afternoon of quiet stitching. It has holes, and cubbies and sections - I think I'll go and load it up with a project right now so it is ready when the sun comes out again - which I hope is soon. What do you carry your handwork projects in - and do you like to stitch outdoors?

Interesting contained for wash cloths ... you idea seems more usable. Love the posey vase. Really love the rhodie.

I loved the little dodads you collected. I wish I could sew outside but I don't have a deck, the backyard it too sunny and the stupid wind blows all the time LOL.
