Treasure Hunt Finds

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,

     I hope you all had a wonderful Saturday. We did not get to go to the sales today because we were busy doing other things, but a few weekends ago I went to Estate Sale and found some lovely treasures. It was the last day of the Estate sale so most of the items were priced really inexpensively.

All of the items that I bought at the Estate Sale cost $8.00, so I don't have individual prices for the items I bought. The funny thing about the total is that we have no idea how she came up with that total. Here are the lovelies:

I just love these lovely framed cross stitch pictures. I think these pretties will end up living in the kitchen.

Vintage autograph book. 

The book is for other high schoolers to sign before the end of the year, but instead this autograph book is filled with cartoons. Its so fun. 

"How to make good pictures" the title is so funny. Its not "How to TAKE good pictures", but "How to make good pictures" I love how things have changed so much since this book was written, techniques have changed and styles of photography.

Beautiful handmade table runner. Its so pretty. 

Vintage sheets. I have great plans for these. 

I do hope you all had a wonderfully thrifty week!
