REDNESDAY



Welcome to "the Rednesday after Sandy"! My post before this one deals with my experience with the hurricane. I have some thrift shop goodies to show you this week. It was one of those days that I hit the jackpot, after many weeks of hardly a thing to buy (except for last week). Here goes!

First item ~ a darling embroidered apron with strawberries that has a sheer gathered hem and sheer waistband and "strings".

Second ~ a wonderful Christmas apron that I just love because it's longer than normal - it actually goes to mid-knee. It has two roomy pockets and a surprising detail of a pleat in the center with three buttons at the top of the pleat! (If it was ironed out the pleat would be prominent, without the creases.)

Third and Fourth ~ cute little S&P's with black tops, and an Anchor Hocking "Wexford" round platter.


Fifth ~ a cheerful vintage Christmas gift box for $2 that has a dozen vintage ornaments inside!


Sixth, and last ~ a box of wrapping paper! Yay! Another $2 item!


These three remnants are raised with a velvety or glittery design.

Feel free to use the snowman print. He's too cute to keep to myself!

There was another item, but it's upstairs and I don't feel like going up with the camera for a pic. I'll try to remember next week!

Such a sweet adorable blog. I wish I could get it in my email. I miss real Christmas wrap. You know like they use to have with real Christmas theme on it (holly, angels, santa, manger, wisemen etc) not the weird kind they sell now.
