A good find!

Since this is the weekend of the Georgia Youth Birding Competition, DS13 and I have had some quality time together as hubby and DS12 participate.

So, in and among my other errands, we stopped in to check out a small thrift shop that I had never really noticed before. It wasn't associated with a charity like most in this area. When I was a kid, we called these places "junk shops." I like junk shops!

Anyway, I scored some remarkable sheets. See?

The center one is a blue, teal, green, and white fitted sheet that the elastic is shot. The one on the left is a queen flat with blue, yellow, and purple flowers on it. The one on the right is a queen flat that is perfect! I am keeping a large section of it for a baby quilt backing. How perfect is that?

The baby quilt I am planning will be my first foray into using this gorgeous fabric. I can't wait!

I washed them up last night and hope to get them cut today for my swap (and some will be kept of course). I just love that they are soft and pretty. I love that hubby loves these types of colors for our bedding and that in patchwork he kind of digs that "grandmother's bedroom" shabby chic look. But, the best part is that I get to keep on quilting and don't have to spend oodles of money to get a look that I really, really adore!

Such fun!

Ohhh....I love the one on the far right! So pretty!

My hubby is so sweet to allow a pink bedroom with lots of flowers everywhere. :o)
