Thrifted miniature nativity.

My daughter and I went out to do a little thrifting this past Saturday and we enjoy adding special items to our type box which decorates our town house. It's hard to find special items to fill it, but this past weekend we found the smallest nativity set we've ever seen and one we can leave out all year long. this is so small that it filled perfectly this 4 inch by two inch space. I think this is the best thrift find ever.

As you can see we have a few more spaces to fill as we take new adventures.

A couple of weeks ago I sent a request out to the universe for olive green fabric at a reasonable price for some projects I want to work on. Twice since I have found some great yardage. The olive green fabric is perfect for some military fabric that I want to make a boy's quilt with. The green striped fabric is home decor fabric which I've already listed on my Etsy store. ( The autumn leaf print fabric was different because it's a quilted leaf on a tan plaid background. This is also listed on Etsy. Then there was this wonderful denim fabric at a price that couldn't be ignored. It's dark blue and heavy and I have some great ideas for it. One more thing to do.

Continuing with my green request was this vintage olive green fondue pot. Used, but in very good condition. This is listed on my storenvy store. ( I think this week I will put out a request for purple items. I never seem to have enough purple. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Fun mix of thrift finds this week.

I tend to search for fabric because I am an addict. Lately I'm finding some fun pieces. I know I can't keep it all or will never use it so I resell it. I'm torn with the green,, brown and gold print piece.

Coming by a piece of vintage Strawberry Shortcake is always great. This is a good size piece with a cut down the center. I will salvage the long piece and sew with the torn section.

I have been looking forever for a piece of black and white checkered gingham. Finally found it in the form of a long curtain. I will be sewing with this. The yellow leaf print sheet is king sized and I scored big with this one.

I found the vintage vase with the fawn at another thrift store and have listed it on my new store, . The sweet delicate mother cat and kitten was found at still another vintage junk shop. It soon will be listed on storenvy

I found this vintage made in Japan oil and vinegar cruet set with salt dish at still another thrift store. It is teak would and ceramic and although one stopper is missing I could not pass it up. It is also listed on storenvy.

And who can ever pass on a great price for vintage Pyrex. These are the medium and small bowl from a nesting set. I just recently sold the large one. These will be coming soon to . I had a fun week and just took my time enjoying being out and working for myself. Now the challenge will be to find the time to get to my sewing machine. Too many ideas floating around in my head that need to become real. Have a wonderful week everyone.

Quick stop on the way home yeilds great fabric finds.

The funky flowers and yellow leaves are sheets and the African print is yard good. So excited about the bright colors.

Juvenile prints for future scrap quilts to donate. I'm always looking for boy prints.

Race car panels and several yards to make donated quilts. I feel I scored big with these two pieces.

Animal cracker train wall hanging panels and rainbow zebra doll panels. So cute for the little one's. Wish I had time to make them myself, but they are listed on the store.

I also found a vintage Star Wars twin sheet which is the first and so far the only item listed on my second on line shop. ( I will be adding to that site this week, but I had to shop for inventory. To me that's the fun part. The vintage animal print is so cute. It is actually a crib quilt. I just loved the prints and listed it on to be used as is or as a cutter quilt. I've had a wonderful week thrifting for my stores and more than anything I'm enjoying sharing it with you. See you again soon and be grateful for all of your blessings.
