lacy afternoon

I only had an hour left before picking up the kids from school this afternoon and still had to do the usual errands; post office, library, grocery shopping so I told myself no stopping to the thrift shop today, besides I have been spending a lot on auctions lately. As I was approaching the thrift store on the way to the post office made the split second decision to stop in anyway, yeah I know I'm sick but I'm glad I did, I found a huge bag of vintage doilies, and not just junk doilies, many of them are really pretty and old. On the otherhand, were having mac n cheese and chicken nuggets for dinner, I'll do my grocery shopping tomorrow.

  1. Oh, these are so gorgeous!! I've wanted to make a doily scarf ever since I saw this (http://blog.craftzine.com/archive/2009/01/how_to_doily_scarf.html?CMP=OTC-5JF307375954), but I never got around to finding enough doilies for it!

    Good find. :)

  2. You've gotta go with your gut- this just proves you made the right decision to pull into the shop! (You can tell I'm a fellow sicko... I always justify a thrift stop)

  3. wonderful! and there is nothing wrong with mac & cheese & chicken nuggets. i hear from other moms that the mac&cheese-chicken-nuggets kids grow up to be may-i-have-seconds-of-that-stew kids!

  4. Great score! Mac and cheese and chicken nuggets are probably what they'd have asked for if you gave them a choice! Good for you for stopping in.
