MY WEEKEND FINDS-Quilt Help, Please!
Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
I found this quilt at an estate sale, and I was really surprised to see it. There was a picture of it in the listing, and I thought for sure that it would be gone by the time I got there. When I asked the worker how much it was, she said that all blankets were $2. SOLD!
I know it's hand quilted.
But I don't know zip about quilts. Is the fabric vintage?
I just can't tell if it's old or not. I know that if the fabric is vintage, that doesn't necessarily make the quilt old. I guess in the end, it doesn't really matter, as long as I like it, right? I would just like to know.........
This cute little TV tray came from a garage sale. I guess there was a spattering candle incident, and I'm still trying to get all of the wax off. After explaining to the seller that this would involve alot of work on my part, he lowered his price from $3 to 50 cents!
I also found some McCoy and Shawnee pots. I've found that if you stand there and let the seller complain about their in-laws for several minutes, you get a reeeally good price!
This box of ornaments came from an estate sale. The cashier explained apologetically that they usually charge $1 for a whole box of ornaments. Fine by me! It gets me that much closer to making an ornament wreath like the ones that Sonya makes.
These are old railroad car keys. Didn't need them, just liked them!
And I can never pass up some good old Harlequin Romances! I love the graphics on the covers, and the titles crack me up.
Every couple of days, I change them out and feature a new title for my viewing pleasure!
So did you find anything exciting over the weekend? Perhaps something that you had to spend hours and hours cleaning, and make you question your sanity?
