Garage Sale Finds

Hello, I hope you all had a great
weekend....It was nice here all week
and when Saturday got here, it was
cold and rainy, then it started snowing
and we had about an inch on Sunday
morning, it melted and then snowed
again in the afternoon....It is 65 degrees
right now......Crazy weather!  Well, I
was out walking on Friday and one of my
neighbors was having a garage sale, so I
stopped.  I got a box full of material for $5
....The red material with the gingerbreads
has about 4 yds, she threw that in for $1 and
the bedspread for another $1...There are
a bunch of tapestry or upholstery samples
that will make cute pin cushions or birds...
I picked out one to recover one of my foot
stools with.

I got a great deal on this stuff!  Now,
I need to get to making something with
it all, or it will just be a waste of money
to have it sit here in the way.  I finally
got the project painted that I was working
on, it took me forever!  If I didn't like part
of it, I painted it again, until I was happy
with it.  I can't show it to you, I sent it to a
blogging buddy, she will probably post it.
She doesn't know what it is, it is a surprise
for her.....Hey Gina, your package is on
the way!

I don't know if I am going to keep doing
"Meet a Bear Monday"....I don't think there
are many bear lovers in the prim world, if
any of you want me to keep posting bears,
just leave me a comment....

Well, I need to go to the store, then finish
cleaning.....I hope you all have a great

Until next time...

  1. Wow girl you got a deal on that box of fabric that's for sure! You can never have enough fabric that's for sure!

  2. Oh Karen I can't wait to see what surprise you have in store for scored on some pretty neat fabrics..;)

  3. All I can say is WOW! Girl, good thing you got there before some other fabric lover. Can't wait to see what you will do with all that great "threads". I also enjoy seeing your bears.


  4. What a nice stash! That's a good idea to use them on pinkeeps. I wish I would have seen this sooner. My friend tried to give me a bunch of upholstery samples but I didn't know what I could do with them. She's already given them to goodwill. Darn!

    I can't wait to see what you come up with!


I love reading your comments, it makes my day!
Please stop by often.
