Love the towel it is too cute, I have not found anything that cute in my thrifting adventures.

Looks like you had a great time thrifting. Thank you for sharing your finds with us. I wanted to let you know how talented I think you are. I looked at your "Blanket Statement" page with all of the beauties you made. I'm in awe of your abilities. I loved everything you made!


Love your thrifted tea towel. It looks to be so soft. Lucky you!!!

Has anyone claimed the ABC Casserole book yet? I'd love to add it to my collection. Also, I was just searching through eBay and found someone selling a set of six. Other titles were Barbecue, Salads, Cocktails, Gourmet Cooking, and Chafing Dish Cookery. LOVE those vintage cookbooks!


We had cornbread last night too! my niece loves it so much she tried to make off with a hunk of it in her pocket!
i, too, am thinking garden thoughts these days...lovely weather we're having!

The teatowel is beautiful isn't it. That simple combination of blue and white or red and white does it every time. I found some similar cookbook at Christmas time and gave them as presents.


i love thrift shopping! some of my favorite things around the house are thrift shop finds! not to mention my jones of ny soft leather blazer in a barn red color! many of my holiday decorations are thrift finds too! i've found some of the best times to go are right after the weekends on mondays and for christmas finds, right after thanksgiving!

I love you creations and the buttons were exactly the right touch.

I am a Mother of Pearl vintage button lover also (well all vintage buttons but mostly the mother of pearl variety). My grandma had a BIG button tin that I loved to play with when I was little. Now the button tin is my own and I use them for little treasures on my creations.


the pillow came out great! i love vintage cookbooks too...i have waaay too many cookbooks! and yet i still buy them!


Oh my goodness! I saw the ABC of Cheese yesterday at the thrift store. I will try to go back today and get it for you. I didn't buy it because I was just looking for local cookbooks put out by the nice church ladies. They sell really well in my antique booth. I will let you know later if I get it for you!!
