VTT

It's so fun to look for treasures when I go into a thrift store. I seem to look at them with new eyes.

I loved finding this dishcloth with the sweet embroidered girl. I'd love to find some more with the different days of the week.

And then there was this pretty cross stitched tablecloth, in perfect condition.

Things like these are getting harder and harder to find in our area.

And then one day I walked into an antique shop in Plant City, and spied this vintage quilt.

oooo what fun!

Isn't it pretty? This is only the second quilt that I have ever bought, and they are both in perfect condition. And I might add that both times I made an offer and the owners accepted it!

Check out the other fun and fabulous Vintage things at Coloradolady's Vintage Thingie Thursday.

I love your vintage linens and quilt.

As a quilter and one who loves to do embroidery, I rely appreciate the beauty of this quilt, the dishcloth, and the cross stitched tablecloth. I used to love doing cross stitching, but I can no longer do it because of arthritis and my eyes. These are great buys, and I know you are really going to enjoy using them in the years to come.

I was fortunate enough to find the whole week of the kitchen towels. They did not come cheap, but I wanted them. Nto sure why, as I have not used them.

I love your quilt you purchased and cross stitch is something I love. Especially the vintage cross stitch from the 40's and 50's. I have a collection of it and I am always on the lookout.
Your quilt has beautiful colors. I know it is a treasure to love.
Hugs, Jeanne
