rulers & measuring tapes
How cute is this! Click here and read all about it. Found this little beauty at a yard sale last weekend for 25 cents. The aqua tape measure with bright yellow on the other side is my new fav. Oh and do you see the other aqua tape role? Made in England and the numbers are ginormous. (yes! finally used that word) They were both found in a bag of notions at Savers.
I have always had a thing for rulers, yard sticks and measuring tapes. This was a pic that I posted several months ago.
Then I found this! I got sooo excited cuz I had only seen this fabric in primary colors. But then my sister Ginny asked me to keep an eye out for the black and gold ruler patterned fabric and there it was! at my favorite fabric store in Phoenix! The Sew and Vac at 35th Ave & Northern! AND I was able to use my 40% off coupon!
While the gal was measuring out my 4 yards she pointed out the word "Penney's" imprinted on the fabric. Oh my gosh! Can you see it?! Are you seeing a pattern here? Pardon the pun, but remember the Penney's pattern? And then Natasha commented on that very post that she has a piece of blue check gingham with the word "Penney's" imprinted on it, that she thinks would look awesome as the backing for that framed pattern. I was like, Natasha! Are you kidding me?!
Hey, are you thinking what I'm thinking... yup, new collection... vintage Penney's memorabilia!
