Sunday Shopping

Yesterday was my niece's birthday. So on route to my sister's house is one of my favorite Antique shops. A 3 story emporium. I rarely make it past the first floor before reaching or exceeding my budget. I thought I would share my finds with you. I seem to be looking at things a bit differently now
. I look for possibilities. Don't get me wrong, I love vintage clothing, back in the eighties it was all I wore. But the dress I found yesterday is for the material. It's gorgeous. My mom said that the dress maker was a very upscale back in the fifties. I also look at the vintage necklaces as a source for beads. Funky beads! So I think I did pretty well yesterday. Some gorgeous black eyelet fabric. There is about 3 yards of it! I am going to have ALOT of fun with that :) I also found some beautiful Ecru lace fabric and wide black lace. And last but not least a funky fifties apron that has an awesome print in grey and pink, and some seam binding to go along with it! The item with the pink "wheel" shapes on it is a needle holder!
On a different note I also wanted to share some of the stunning handspun yarn I received today from Felt Studio UK. She does stunning work! This is the second time I have bought from her and I cannot wait to start working with these yarns!
