Thrifted







Yesterday I decided to stop by a few of my favorite thrift shops. It has been awhile since I’ve done any serious thrifting and it was a good day!

The vintage suitcase looks like it was never used and cost me $1.50. The mouse fabric was pretty irresistible (and also $1.50) I love the little mushrooms on the ribbon (.25), and the last fabric has 3 and 1/2 yards ($3.00)…so I think it might become a Christmas table cloth, or pillow backings. I found a couple more items but they are being saved away for Christmas gifts so I can’t show any photos yet. I cannot resist a bargain :)

    oh my that mouse fabric is amazing! it looks like a tablecloth from fairytale gingerbread house.. though it would make the most amazing pillowcases, with the little mice dashing across it:) SUCH a good find.
