Thrifting Thursday
Old barkcloth pillow.
Pretty rose plate.
The lid on this vintage hatbox is unusual, with it's rhinestone accents.
From "Paris".
Vintage needle case; the graphics on the front remind me of Mary Engelbreit.
The back of the sewing kit.
And the inside.
Will store goodies in my studio in these beauties!
And make something pretty out of this barkcloth-era fabric. There are three panels.

Today was yard-sale day around here, so hubby and I spent a couple of hours "sale-ing" this morning. I am happy with my finds. Hope you are having a happy day too!

Great finds! I like the barkcloth fabric...I would have snagged that in a second.

Beautiful finds! Barkcloth is difficult to find. I'm always looking for vintage chenille, equally difficult to find especially for a reasonable price! Wish you could come to the sidewalk sale! I'll be sure to post after sale photos for you to see.
