Thrifted Loveliness

A beautiful vintage tablecloth made of gorgeous cotton.  Love the drape on these old cloths...  a weight and quality not found in stores today.

 A little Spring for the table

and some roses, too...

A mint condition oval Pyrex and 6 of these...  

...pure wool, soft and delicate.

Now.  I must learn to knit more than a dishcloth as these lovelies have been languishing in someone's cupboard for far too long and clearly they are asking to be promoted to a life of usefulness, no?

So, yes.  On the "list" is to learn to knit something "wearable".  

I'll get right on that, shall I?   


  1. What an amazing quilt to find at a thrift shop! lucky you

  2. I love your creamer, really vintage looking. Good luck knitting yourself a dress.

  3. I'm laughing because I also have a list of things I would like to learn....the list would take another lifetime to complete. I'm impressed that you can knit!
    I'm so glad I found your blog....

  4. Great finds !! The wool will come in handy when you get the hang of knitting. It is very addictive ; )

  5. wow!!!!absolutley great finds!!!! the wool is wonderful and i wish you luck with knitting(its very easy)the spring quilt is very pretty and the sauciere is a dream.
    have a nice week,
    love regina

  6. Some fantastic finds there! I havent been out thrifting for a few weeks but we are going away soon for a couple of days so hopefully I will be doing the rounds of different charity shops soon!
