We had the best day of thrifting.  We started out visiting garage sales and we ran into one of my co-workers Nancy. She is a total sweetheart and we have fun when we get together.  Nancy and I have  the same taste so we know what each other is looking for.  While we where collecting addresses to visit the garage sales a really nice gentleman told us about an estate sale about 15 minutes away.  JackPot!


 I just happen to be digging through some cloths/sheets and found this hexagon quilt.  This is the best $10 you could ever want to spend.  I looked it over and it is hand quilted but did not realize it was a star quilt until I got it home and took a picture of it.  I now real observant huh? hehe  The hexes are small 11/4 wow how this must of took someone alot of time.  I would just love to know the history but of course no one did.




The pair are my $1 finds at the estate sale.  The estate was picked over I think they have been trying to sell things for a couple of weeks now.  The genteman told us they where pretty pricey but when the went back on Sunday they we dealing more.  So by the time we got there they where really nice in the dealing department. I could not resist the little pin cushion with pink and blue roses.  The little girl was just to sweet to pass up.



The  crocheted  lace only .50cents.  Thought it would look great on my mantle so I just had to show you.



I bought 3 packages of fabrics at one of the garage sales for a dollar a piece. This is just a picture of one package.  Each package had like 6 different 1/2 yard cuts.  Could not  pass this up.  The last 7 fabrics in this picture are childern's prints that are so cute.  I think they will go nicely in a baby quilt.  Maybe I should start one.  Maybe a baby will be in Autumn's (my niece that just got married) future?


Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.

  2. Donna, how lucky were you... I think it's sad that the hexagon quilt ended up at a sale like that when all that work had been put in to it.. wonder where our treasure will end up??

  11. I really like the makeover on your blog. The image at the top looks fantastic!

    How in the world do you find such spectacular things at garage sales? I've only been to a few yard sales and have never found anything remotely as impressive as what you have shared on your blog. Where do you live?
