I spent all afternoon rummaging through several suburban strip-mall thrift stores today. I used to go thrifting about once a week, but I'm so busy these days that I don't get out very often. Plus I really don't need anything - although wouldn't you know that I DID find some things I couldn't live without!
Like this short stack of books (which are already stashed away in my sewing room to look at later, I'm not allowed to bring any new books into the house according to the husband). Included here is a really cool old geographical survey book, which will make awesome crafting paper:
And this large Wallpaper picture book, which is filled with EYE CANDY! Great for color inspiration and pattern ideas:
I also found a bag o' old wooden sewing stuff. I think these are all darners, one is shaped like a foot for darning socks:
And that last little egg in the lower right is actually a sewing kit, too. It opens up to hold a spool for thread and a small tube for keeping needles.
This thing was also in the bag, I have no idea - do YOU know what this is?
And that's it for my afternoon! I feel a little guilty because I could have been sewing, but everyone needs a little thrifting break now and then!
