quilts



My favorite little thrift store has affectionately become known as "MY thrift store". Why do we do that? Why do we become so attached to our little local thrift stores... so possessive. Don't get me wrong, I tell everyone about my thrift store. I want them to check it out... but... I want them to go with ME. It's important that I show them around... you know, point out areas they might miss... tidbits that only I would know. Some people are just clueless in the art of thrifting. So I take them under my wing and show them the ropes. It's just a little something I do to spread the wealth... in thrifting! Now there's an oxymoron! But I kinda do make money thrifting!! Think about it...
Anyway, the last couple times I've gone to my thrift store I have found quilts. The two patchworks are lap quilts ($2.00 each) and the flannel one is a Christmas baby quilt (only 99 cents!). Notice that when they tied the quilt, they hid every single knot! Simply exquisite! And someday I'm thinking a little grandbaby will be wrapped in such softness!

What fantastic finds! I am looking for a little quilt for our lab Ben's bed (just like Posie's corgi Audrey has).

I would love a patchwork quilt or 2 .... you should start a personal shopping business ... hint hint ...

I have garage-saled for years (and hit Good Will often), so much that friends give me their lists of what they are looking for.

I think you and I would have a blast together. Maybe some day? :)

Great buys as always! So what's the name of YOUR thrift store and where is it?

Great finds.

I enlarged to see the baby flannel knots--or lack thereof--I've never seen one tied so nicely with little X's. Very nice indeed.

Those scones look good. I have a blueberry scone recipe I tore out of a magazine years ago. I have not made them in a while because I didn't freeze any blueberries for the past two years. How nice to have a daughter who is interested in baking for you!

oxymoron in your blog. I never
even heard that word before!!!
