Tuesday's Treasures!

Hello!  :)

Hope you're doing well today!  :)

As promised I'm here to share my latest Thrift Stores treasures with you. I managed to find a lot of sheets this past weekend as well as a few other treasures.

Let's start with this find . . .


Yes! It's a vintage Christmas Tablecloth!!! Isn't it awesome?!!! I absolutely love it! It's so perfect and beautiful! I love vintage tablecloths!  :)  I'll have to show you my collection some time.  :)

The next items were originally attached to a desk blotter. They are porcelain and really pretty!


I feel in love with these instantly and purchased the blotter so I could take these off and use them on a future project. Which project? Who knows. All I know is I have them for when I find the perfect item to put them on. I was kind of bummed when I removed them from the blotter as I accidentally dropped the top piece and chipped the corner. :(  I'm crafty though and I'm sure I can still find a use for it.  :)

On my adventures I came across 9 zippers for future bags.


Look at this . . . 


Doesn't it just look like the beginning of some aprons?!!! They sure would be quick and easy! It's actually a vintage valance. I just fell in love with it the minute I saw it and it's potential.  :)

Next is another valance that I thought would be perfect for an apron!  :)


It's much better in person. This picture just doesn't do it justice! Trust me!  :)

This next photo includes lots of Hawaiian prints . . . 


Wonder what I'll use these for? Hummmm . . .  Actually I know exactly what I'm using these for! I'll share more towards the end of November. :)

Now it's time to share my vintage, and more current (but not less fab) sheets . . . 


This first vintage one is the perfect color for my daughters quilt I'm making her for Christmas. The picture didn't come out too well. Actually a lot of the sheet pictures didn't come out so well . . . sorry.  :(

The next one reminds me of some tie-dyed shirts from the 60's. Love the colors!  :)


This next one is more modern but I love the colors of the stripes! I definitely can work with it . . . 


The next sheet reminds me of the color of candy necklaces. Remember those? I loved them!  :)


This next one is definitely vintage! Isn't it pretty?!!! I actually came across two flat sheets in this design . . . 


This next sheet looks really bad in the photo.  :(  It really is nice in person though . . . trust me!  :) . . .


Check out this one . . .


It's really out of focus, but oh so adorable!  :)  Don't you just love the monkeys?!!! They remind me of Curious George. Do you remember Curious George?

The next sheet was love at first sight! It's so awesome! Love the surfboards and hibiscus! It's so fun!  :)


The next one is actually a duvet cover. The flowers are really vibrant!


There is also trim fabric on this in a blue/teal batik. It's really vibrant in person! I really wish my photos came out better but this time they just didn't. Don't know exactly why. Please forgive me!  ;)

Better get going! Thanks for letting me share my treasures with you!  :)

Until next time . . .
