Just A Few Things That Found It's Way Into My Hand Last Weekend. Status: Thrift Goodies.
Just a quick post. It's late and I've had a long day. Worked 11 hours and my Grandmother passed on today (well, yesterday...Wednesday). Not an easy day. So I'm gonna make this a quick one.
These are just a couple of things that found their way home with me this last weekend. I found
this great printed drape panel at a Value Village thrift store for just a couple of bucks. I looked
and looked for a matching panel but it just wasn't there. Oh well, I figured I'd figure out
something to do with it.
Pillows? It's a nice linen so that'd be nice. The pattern repeats it's self four times going up the
panel. Maybe I can get four pillows out of it. Sounds like a job for SuperModtomicMom. I'd
just make a mess of the whole endeavor.
This is the set of pillows that gave me the idea. I think they came with a sofa or something, or
maybe I got them loose at an estate sale. I really can't remember. They are super looking but
slick to the touch since they are made of a synthetic. The linen will be much more comfortable.
I also picked up a set of small coffee cups that will match both my Salem Biscayne and Salem
Northstar. At Fifty Cents each from the goodwill I just couldn't leave them behind. It's how a
big healthy set of dinnerware gets built...on the cheap!
