Weekend Picks - Part One
Time for just one estate sale on Saturday and I left with a sweet pile of sewing notions for my Etsy store. Yes, that bowl in the back is the one I bought a couple of weeks ago. It is holding 50+ zippers.
Everything isn't headed to Etsy. This vintage dried flower picture is staying with me.
And these Fostoria Baroque parfaits will be added to the husband's collection. They are sitting on a stunning lace scarf head cover that is already listed in my Etsy shop.
A cute little Royal Ruby vase for my collection and, in front of it, cards of vintage rayon seam binding. I love that stuff! My stash is overflowing so I need to get some of that listed, too.
My proudest accomplishment.... There was a huge pile of doilies and I heaped them right into my box, like I always do, and then... wait for it.... I put them back! For once I left them behind for someone else to rescue. Of course, my box was really full with all the sewing stuff so no promises but, as they say, one step at a time! I kept this one table runner because it was a unique pattern...
...and this pile of crochet squares that are just waiting to be stitched together into pillows or a tablecloth. The two tiny salt and peppers will be added to my collection.
Stay tuned for Part Two, Sunday at the VOA.
