The Little Things

July 11, 2011

When I saw these I just fell for them…..and they will be perfect for Fionna.

I like the way they did the hem. They just pulled the fabric up and then folded it down again and sewed the hem and pulled some threads to make the fringe. Gotta Luv It!

I used to love going on the teeter totter as a child. I haven’t even seen one in years.

My son said yesterday for the first time this summer “I’m bored”.

It brought a smile to my face. I wish I had summer boredom.

I had 3 brothers and a sister. We used to spend so much time playing outside. We spent all kinds of time with our little red wagon….pushing and pulling.

Saturday Jul 9th 2011Thrift Haul

Originally uploaded by Q_uilted T_hrifted

Ok I went thrifting a few days ago and kept thinking about this crocheted butterfly with the vintage lace pillow. I had to go back and see if it was still there….and of course see what other treasures I could find.

It was still there! I LUV it. I am thinking I will take it off this pillow and put in on one of my crazy quilt patches in the sunflower quilt.

I just had to get this wheelbarrow small pillow.

I have always wanted to make some pillows like this one.  It only cost 99cents. I couldn’t make it for this price.

I would like to some day have an entire collection of pillows made with plaid fabrics.  Why NOT!

I purchased my first Pyrex cup! I have been looking for one and finally!

I can always use another casserole  dish. I like this design so much. I don’t know if I already have anything in this design but I think I do.

Look at that great bracelet!

I can’t wait to fix this bracelet. It needs to be restrung and I may even put new spacers between the bobbles.

I ended up buy 4 shirts for myself today….the only time I can do that is when I get to shop without a 9 year old tagging along. He likes to go hand out by the toys but It does inhibit my ability to just look around.

Again, I just had to buy it. This blouse has a sunflower theme to it. It has a very artistic feel to it. I am looking forward to putting an entire outfit together.

I have always like the combination on blue with the mustard yellow. This blouse also has a very artistic feel to it. I have the perfect long black skirt to wear with it. Fun fun fun!

Not the bangles. They are kind of my thing.The red one I got about a yaer ago. It is black on the inside… is so cool.  Also thrifted.  The beaded one was my Christmas gift from my boss at work. Each employee got a different one. The black bangle I just thrifted this past week. It has the stretch elastic on it so it it easier to get over my wrist. I have some bangles that hurt when I put them on. They are a bit too small.

and since we are on black. This blouse has the neatest black lace all across the back. I won’t be wearing this to work….but I think I know someone who will like it. I have the perfect black spaghetti strap top to go underneath it.

So….what have I missed telling you about. Oh, yeah. Some little pants for Fionna (my GREAT niece). I will write more about them later.

and another blue glass goblet – now I have 10 of them.
