Yard Sale Finds

Saturday Graham and I had some errands to run so we decided to stop at a yard sale since it had been FOREVER since we had been to one:) We got there at towards the end of the sale, so I am sure we missed some good stuff. I did get a couple of things though!

One vintage curtain tie back. Not sure what I am going to do with it but it is so pretty and only 50cents I couldn't pass it up.

A vintage curtain panel. I don't plan on using it on a window, but I love the fabric. Who knows what I will use it for.

This pretty piece of fabric is HUGE, it is probably a queen size piece of fabric. It is very heavy, so I am thinking I will use it for the back of a picnic quilt I have been wanting to make. I have been saving everyones worn out jeans for the last few years to make a quilt with. So worth it for 1$.

I am sure no one is in a Christmas mood, but these are tiny vintage Santa mugs so I had to grab them. I have two all ready so I will be adding these to the shoppe. If you have to have them let me know!

I also got some light weight curtain panels for my family room, they are in the wash/Iron stage so I will show a pic when I get them up.

Off to make dinner.

That curtain thing *IS* pretty!! Maybe mount it vertically and use it to hold hand or dish towels?

And I really like that curtain, too.

I LOVE that tieback! I've never seen one like it. I like the idea of mounting it up and down and using it for a towel holder or something. Pretty! LOVE the curtain panel too--such cute fabric!

That curtain panel is SO cute! I love it! Thanks for stopping by my blog, the backing on that quilt , the ginger dot quilt, is a polka dot I got at Joann's. Its always in random places, but they have it in pink and an offwhite, it is so soft! Thanks again for saying hello!
