Someone's poor Auntie or Grandma is turning over in their grave right now. Look at this gorgeous quilt I found yesterday at Goodwill for $1.99. Why would someone give up a keepsake like this?! There were 2 others-a rainbow and a bouquet of flowers. When I saw them I immediately stashed all 3 in my cart. But as I was walking around I felt I should put 2 back. Partly because I hoped the "soon to be cut out of the will" person would regret their decision and come back looking for them. Partly because I was so happy to see them that I thought maybe someone else would feel the same way. Doesn't hurt to pass a little sunshine on. And partly because people that search for finds like this and who appreciate vintage things know that the hunt is a huge chunk of the fun. I don't search for hordes of things-I want a collection of vintage pieces that mean something to me. So I put those other 2 back in hopes that they will go to happy homes, and I have a little more space in my house for another day of thrift shopping. :) However-if I go back soon and they are still there, then it would indeed be a new day and since everyone else had ignored them, I wouldn't want their feeling hurt now would I? Gorgeous quilts shouldn't be homeless. Don't worry Auntie Muriel-whoever..I'll take good care of your beautiful quilt.
I hope you all have a great weekend. I am going to a wedding tomorrow which should be great fun as I made the flower girl's dress. Oh-and the bride's dress too. Yes-I made a wedding dress of which I sweat-ed bullets. But they are both gorgeous and the bride is thrilled. So unless is rips apart as she is walking down the aisle (knock on wood everyone..) I will share pictures on Monday.
