I haven't shown my thrifty finds in a while --and there's a reason for that!
It's because I haven't been going thrifting very much lately -- I'm in my beginning of the year, reorg and purge mode, instead.
But yesterday I met a friend at an estate sale, and we had fun finding a few treasures.
Like this still-crisp, all cotton, men's shirt with some wonderful details. I just loved the teeny tiny smocking and the tiny buttons -- plus the Arrow label and this stamp which appears right on the front of the shirt!
Here's an example of something others would consider trash: an old, handmade cookbook. Bernice used cardboard covered with contact paper to make a cheery, red-checked cover for it.
Then she typed recipes, using carbon paper to make multiple copies, and gave it to her family/friends.
What I like best: the pages which list family members' "favorite menus"!
Funny -- most of the actual recipes are for desserts. I find that's usually the case with these little, handmade cookbooks.
What fun things have you found lately?
