and finally...here are the rest of the treasures I found on Tuesday when I went thrifting. A beautiful gold and green bracelet - it is a bunch of little flowers and the stems circle around to connect them to the next flower. Very cute!! ($4.00) (my most expensive purchase that day)
An old February 04 issue of MSL ($.25) , MSL Crafing for the Holidays book ($2.50) vintage ribbon ($1.00 each) old buttons (.25 each) and a handful of vintage cards (.10-.25 each)
Two of the aprons (1.00 each) - I love the little guy taking a siesta under his big orange sombrero.
Oops and this one is sideways - sorry - these are the two children aprons. One is a half apron and one is a bib apron. They are both really delicate. The other bib apron is really a pale pink (it looks white here) and it was made by the Japan Apron Association and designed by Giovanni Garavani. I've done a little research on that one and apparantly Giovanni is a big wig Italian designer. Cool!! I found a website for the Japan Apron Assocation but it was all in Japanese so I didn't learn anything there:) But it is a tremendously awesome apron for $3.00. It has pin tucks and little tiny lace details on the bodice and the hem. I love it.
I was so pleased with my little shopping trip - I think my grand total was $21.00. It looked too like they were expanding in to the storefront next door too so I'll be going back next week to see if they really did!
I had big plans for today, but I promptly got home from church and took a 2 hour nap. Now I'm still kind of groggy. We just had a roaring thunderstorm that lasted all of 3 minutes. UMMM I think I hear the Dr. Pepper in the fridge calling my name - maybe that will wake me up and I can actually get a few things accomplished today: )
