We are having a fabulous, sunny spring day! I attacked some more flower beds today. I had great plans for quilting but we were hit with a power outage until after lunch so I had no choice! I shouldn't complain too much about the flower beds since Husband had already done the brunt of the work by raking all the winter icky away some time ago. I just had to hunt out the nasty grass and those evil lurking buttercups.
As for my thrifty treasures today, I found this cute little kitchen tin earlier in the week. I am quite nutty about tins and have several different patterns of this type of kitchen tin but I have never seen this pattern. And it was cheap at $2. The little egg cup came home with me today. One can never have enough egg cups especially with Easter just around the corner.
I found quite an assortment of sewing bits and pieces. Some pearl cotton was in a bag of thread spools, including the wooden ones. I actually opened the bag after paying and donated back a bunch of thread that I did not want and just brought home the wooden spools and the pearl cotton. I think the cashier thought I was a bit odd. She asked me several times if I was sure. Tee hee hee! I found the dish cloth cotton at the same place. Brand spanking new. The vintage rick tack and the buttons were too cute to pass up. The hanky below was a steal at 50 cents and has a tiny sticker tag indicating that the hanky was embroidered by hand.
And that's it folks! I will be linking up with Sophie's Flea Market Finds and maybe even Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday. Garage sale signs are starting to pop up but I am holding out for some really great church sales. They are just so much fun!
*And I took several of the photos on one of my vintage sheet quilts. Just for fun!
