Recent Thrift Store Finds

I hit the jackpot the other day at my local thrift store.  WooHoo!

Look at this awesome shelf paper!  Still new in its packaging!  I almost don’t want to open it, but I want it on my kitchen shelves…decisions, decisions….

Oh, and NEW japanese painted plates.  I have a bit of an addiction to these things.  I already had 8 in a beautiful brown and orange flower print and then found 4 of each of these 2 prints.  Welcome to the family pretty plates!

Oh, and wait until you see this next treasure.  Oh my goodness I could hardly believe my luck!  A vintage pattern/fabric/instruction package to make this adorable bird apron!  I love this fabric SOOO MUCH!  And though the apron is cute, I think I’m going to make some cheerful bird pillows for my couch so I can look at these little fellas anytime I want to.

and don’t you think this lovely lady would have a lot to teach us about proper hospitality?  I bet she vacuums in high heels and pearls…

All this (and a few other things!) for a whopping total of $4.50.
