monday = thrifted

I had a nice weekend, hope you did too!

I went to several estate & rummage sales over the weekend & had very good luck:

I’m all ready to start a new embroidery project this evening so I’m off...

oh my goodness yes! You did well! I've been searching for embroidery hoops Lately but they're always ugly plastic ones if I find any. I think those wooden 'mushrooms' are just begging to be painted up.

Claire said...

Wow - they were good finds! I have a garden gnome that apparently is quite rare, and as his fishing rod is missing he looks like he's playing air guitar!
