three things.

Over at Lucky Lucille, Rochelle has a post about 'three things'.

I meant to blog about the full extent of my 4th of July thrifting adventures today, but I had a little uploading snafu and have... you guessed it!  Only three of the many photos of my treasures.

Rather than feel glum about it, I'm taking it as a message from the Universe to follow suit.  Here are three glimpses of my thrift adventure.

We saw her in an antique store on the 4th of July proper.  I'm fascinated by vintage toys and yet they also creep me out a little.  I have never seen the likes of this little lady.

Another compelling treasure that didn't come home with me - an ornately decorated vintage machine set into a table - from "The Ideal Sewing Machine Co." It's exquisitely beautiful.  If I had a very large house, I'd be quite prone to bringing things like this home, but I just contented myself with snapping a few photos.

I did take home something, though!  (Well, actually quite a lot of somethings.)  These are some lovely spools of vintage elastic that I got in a grab bag of lots of other treasures at the Grants Pass Humane Society Yard Sale (an outdoor sale that is regularly set up in front of the Humane Society Thrift Store with the fabulous price of all you can stuff into a grocery bag for $4!) The ribbons on top of the spoons were packaged all together.  Three are heavy double-sided satin ribbon and two are petersham in various shades of grey.  They will be perfect for backing sweater button bands.

That's my sneak peak of the thrifting adventure. Stay tuned for a more complete post on my finds and a couple of completed project posts coming up soon! Cheers!

  1. That's an Annie Oakley doll. I had her. She also had a rubber fringe jacket and skirt, like Polly Pocket clothes.
