Monday's thrifty finds

There's no better way to start off the week than to indulge your passion a little, is there?  Here's a little linen love:

I found these gorgeous linen napkins -- four of them, pristine white, with high quality stitched basket motifs -- at a thrift store last week.

This came from an estate sale -- isn't it just perfectly primitive?  A little doily for your salt and pepper!

I absolutely fell in love with this large vintage fabric remnant...what detail!  You just never know what you'll find at a charity shop!

It's toile-like as you can see, and done on a heavy cotton fabric that is reminiscent of bark cloth.

Wonderful detail of a working farm.

Okay, this is not fabric, but these old clip on earrings are about 2" across each, and cost only $2 at a nice antique store because of one missing stone.  I call that a thrifty buy!

A unique old needlepoint of a coastal cottage, edged with blue crochet -- I don't often see them done this way.

I'd make a nice bag out of the fabric. Love it.

I love that little doily for the salt and pepper shakers.
