TREASURE SHOPPING - Antique quilt squares


Today I was driving by the local antique shop (junk shop) and saw some benches so I decided to stop.

Didn't buy the benches but get a load of these quilt squares....



There are 24 of them.   Only cost me five dollars.  There was no price tag so the owner of the store tried to call the lady but no answer.  So I left my name and number.

While doing so the lady who owns these squares came in.  Can you believe that?

What luck!!!!

We asked her how much and she kinda scrunched up her face and said....five dollars like that would be too much!!!  I just laughed because I would have paid more.



These fabrics are really old, I am guessing around the 1930's with just one square with some age spots.

Can I say SCORE????



Aren't these glasses just the cat's meow???

I had to decide whether I should sneak these glasses in the house or just fess up to it.
Those of you who have read my blog know that I love love love dishes.
Can't get enough of them.

I decided to just come out with it.

Picture this.....my husband comes through the door as I am washing them.
I give a faint smile like the cat who ate the canary.
My husband just smirks and rolls his eyes like you have got to be kidding me.

He is really thinking


are you nutzzzzzzz

I can only agree with him.   I will say that I did give a nice set of dishes to my newest daughter in law, so I am thinning things out...HA!!!!! HA!!!!

FURRY FRIDAYS



Island Batik is sponsoring a "Furry Fridays" on specific Island Batik Ambassador's blogs for seven weeks. " Furry Fridays is to help the Petfinder Foundation adopt out cats and dogs in shelters across the U.S. This week Petfinder Foundation is highlighting two animals that are looking for their forever home." Each Friday for the next seven weeks, we will share pictures of shelter pets that need a home. Now they may not be in your area, however, if you are looking for a pet, you can go to the Petfinder.com page, put in your area code plus what type of pet you want and you will find a listing of all the pets needing homes in or near your area. I have taken exerts from several blogs just so you know that I plagiarized begging their forgiveness.

BOWL COZY (POTHOLDER) MACHINE




I am definitely a bowl cozy (potholder) machine, I am making these puppies like no one's business.

I was told to call them cozy's instead of potholder because you can not use these for taking things out of the oven, for the microwave only.

Right now there are 24 of these, I think I will make six more.  No, I am not selling them...it is a surprise.....so shhhhhhhh  secret!!

If you are interested in my fast easy way to make these, go here:

This truly is a faster way than what I have seen.  If you do try it, let me know.  Actually it makes it kinda fun.

For the last few years I have been a bad blogger, with taking care of my mother and her many ER episodes and hospital stays, grandson, and my own health issues I just have put reading of blogs on the back burner......if you do comment, I will be sure to come by and visit you.  I miss hearing about everyone but sometimes LIFE gets in the way.
