giddy

how is it possible to find such incredible old pictures at a thrift store? who gives these away? i am so amazed...but also thankful. i would probably not have them if i had to pay the antique store price. i hope you can appreciate how beautiful these are from this not-so-great photo; i was interrupted so many times while taking these pictures, that i really didn't know that i had such a mediocre shot...

i found this big bag of ribbons and lace while rummaging around in a huge old rubbermaid container at the thrift store, on the floor, under some hanging items. very dark. and quite dusty. but worth it!



and these spools took my breath away - even though i am rarely a "pastel, spring color" girl

and these perfect little egg cups are on sale this week at joann's at 50% off...i'm very enamored with these:)

Wow! You really made out like a bandit! I especially love the little egg cups and I'll have to check the Jo-Ann's here to see if they have them. Not that I need or have any use for them, but they are really cute and that's all that matters, right?

Hugs

Great finds. I especially love all the pretty ribbons. Guess you and I have similar tastes in some things. I just purchased the same 3 egg cups from JoAnn's this past weekend when I found them on sale. Don't you just love the pretty colors of them? Stop by for a visit and find out about my new blog feature of Teacup Tuesdays. Would love to have you join in next time if you'd like to.

Stumbled across your blog and just love it. From one vintage lover to another- really enjoyed seeing all your great finds! I also think I need to head to Joann's for the little egg cups!

Darling floral prints, and the pic you took of them looks good to me! Love the "normal day" quote you have in your sidebar. Such a good reminder.

Those trims. Sigh. So pretty. Oh, Joanns. I would have bought so much more if I hadn't tripped on the loose fabric on the floor, and banged up my knees. I just might have seen these little egg cups if I didn't rush out of there red-faced. lol.
