Fabulous Finds!

I was "feeling the radar" yesterday, so I packed the kids up and hit a couple thrift stores. I found a pile of children's books (maybe I'll post that later), and a few other things:

There is 2+ yards of this sweet vintage corduroy print. It makes me smile. It was inside a bag of crud, which I had to buy in order to get it, but it was only $2 so I figured it was worth it.

This little quilt top was hiding in the bag too! It will be so easy to finish it up as a future charity/service project.


And, finally, the best! No -- not the bear...


...His glasses!! It was only 75 cents for the bear. I stole his glasses and he's going right back to the thrift store where someone, I am sure, will find him and love him. But those glasses! They are so stinking cute!! They fit this girl pretty well, but I'm not certain that's who they will ultimately be for. We shall see!

Oh my! So coveting the corduroy print right now. Printed corduroy is my favorite.

Radar working for you too!
Good stuff ...
no - I didn't make the Indian wall hanging... Was a gift from the school I taught at for 10+ yrs when I left!
Keep up with the good radar ... Cheers

Love the little glasses, my girls would go nuts for them. I wish I had more time for thrift shopping, someday soon I'm sure.

I took your suggestion and posted a tutorial for my Bitty Bag as a Christmas gift bag if you wanna check it out.
