Yes, finally a decent day. It's been pretty bad at the thrifts around here. No estate sales to speak of, and the one auction I went to on Saturday was less than thrilling. I left empty-handed after a couple hours.
So, it's been so bad that when I saw these fabrics at the Goodwill I wasn't even that excited about them. They were all taped up and I didn't have the ambition to open them up to look more closely. I thought they looked old, but they were in such good shape, I wasn't sure.When I got home my indifference turned to school-girl giddiness! Both have 36" selvages, so they are old! No rips, no stains!The red and black piece is 4 yards.The blue piece is 10 1/2 yards!!! And since not much in my house is blue I will be selling it. Just not sure how or when I will do that. Not too many crafters out there want 10 1/2 yards of one fabric! So maybe I'll do an dutch auction or something.
You know today is Rednesday over at It's a Very Cherry World! . It seems in my drought that Rednesday is the one day I KNOW I can post something. I could let my red and black fabric be my weekly contribution, but I decided to throw in a few other red items.My canisters from an auction last January (I don't think they are very old.) Notice my red scoops inside!My cookbook rack, I bought at a thrift store probably 12 years ago. I immediately painted it RED!These pictures accentuate the fact that I need new counters and a backsplash! I still have the "builder's beige" going on! We keep pushing this project back, but I am hoping to finally tackle this come Fall!
So, now that I've done my part to keep the Rednesday train going. I'm off to check out the other red goodies out there!
