The other day on my lunch hour I went to the fabric store, Fabrics R Us in San Jose, everything is so inexpensive there. I bought this tassel trim to trim pillows for $6.00 a yard! I already had the trim in the background and they go together perfectly. I see pillow making in my future... Becca ~ Of Bluebirds and Roses sent me this little birdie cone. I had commented on another she made awhile back and said that I would like to make one some day...now I don't have to...she made one for me! Isn't that nice! It's so adorable!
And last but not least, I found this little caddy thing at the thrift store last week. It was $7.99 but it was half off so for $3.98 I have a cute little serving piece.
I was wondering what I could use this for and I came up with a lot of different ideas! Here are some of my ideas but I'm sure there are many more!
- hold olives, pickles, etc.
- ketchup, mustard, mayo
- ice cream toppings for sundae making
- hold colored pencils, paint brushes, etc...someday when I have a craft room
- take the glasses out and put little pots of herbs
- hold garnishes for a cocktails
I'm planning on going to an Estate Sale tomorrow with my friend Nelson. I won't have much spending money but hopefully I can find something. This one intrigued me because it said "Decorate your beach cottage" in with all the description of other more specific items.
Have a great weekend!
