But then... I found this.
OH. MY. GOSH. I was stunned. It's even more beautiful than your run-of-the-mill burlap runner. It's got these nubby clumps of fringe scattered about. (Double click the pic to enlarge) I had to wonder if it was some sort of silk blend scarf, although it's rather rough & coarse like burlap.
Anyway, it's the perfect size & length for my farmhouse table. And I love its one-of-a-kind uniqueness. And if it falls apart when I finally hand wash it, I will have only spent $2.99.
I don't know about you, but I am wild about anything with words and phrases and numbers. So these next finds made me so happy. Found the It's Time To Dine apron for a dollar at Tiedemann's Family Thrift- you know, my favorite little thrift store.
Notice the tiny metal sign that says Dinner is ready when the alarm goes off~ 30 cents on clearance at Marshall's. Too cute. Too true.
And now to my 2nd best find in July. (my Longeberger purse was #1)
I have seen this 24X24" canvas print several times over the past couple years and never dreamed I'd own my very own. I am all over lemons and dreams and cute little ampersands, so you can imagine my delight!
~It'll Cost Nothing to Dream & Everything Not To~
Found it for $5.00 at the ARC in Tempe. I know! I went on eBay HERE and about had a cow when I saw what they're selling for!
