To me, spring means GARAGE SALES!! Estate sales and thrift stores are year-round, but garage sales tend to happen in the spring and summer. I'm sure its the same everywhere, but I'm just giddy with the thought of garage sales!
Most every time I say something about garage sales my hubby says "well, who's selling their garage and why do you want to buy it?" Ha! He's such a card -- he needs to be on that golf course!
BUT, have you ever gone to a estate sale or garage sale or thrift store and everything you bought followed a theme? That's what I realized when I got my treasures home -- it was a sewing theme.
A few patterns
This one is very cool in the sleeveless version and I love the fact that the model is wearing tennis shoes!
and is that a man's tie I see around her waist?!!
This pattern is pretty crazy and I would feel silly wearing it, but for the right person it would be awesome!
I dunno about those pants though....
Now on to the really cute stuff!
This adorable kitty string holder with its pretty blue and pink flowers
Who wouldn't love that sweet face!
A cutie mouse pin cushion and thimble
The thimble has a home on her tail!!
And this sweet tea pot shaped like a sewing machine!
Reminds me of my mother's sewing machine!
When she was teaching me how to sew, I had to stitch on a sheet --
seam after seam to practice stitching in a straight line!
Totally boring -- I wanted to sew something!!
Aren't they all the cutest?!!
They'll be in my shop soon, whenever I can get a little research done on the ceramics!
Yay for nicer weather!!
