Yard sales are awesome

Last weekend I walked over to a yard sale a couple of blocks away and got these amazing vintage tablecloths for $2 and $3. I also bought a beautiful porcelain doll that needs a lot of work so more on that later.

I want to take my kitchen in a pinker direction.

I love this style of art. I have a cool cookbook that Crisco put out and it has this feel.

This is a huge gingham skirt that I just love. It's not very vintage (the tag says Liz Claiborne) but it's good quality 100% cotton so I may make a skirt for me or a dress for Zadie out of the fabric. I think I paid about 50 cents for this.

Love those table cloths. Swoon.

With that skirt, you could make Z one of these:

I'm almost finished making one for Thea. Too cute!

Hope you are well. xo

That's a great skirt! Good idea.
I have enough fabric to make one for me too!

Great finds! I love yard sales as well, and funny enough, we found treasures last weekend too.

I think I'd pee my pants if I saw linens like that at a yard sale, lucky you!
