I have shared before my love of yard sales. I can't wait for yard sale season to start again. But in the meantime I visit Thrift Stores in order to get my fix of aquiring other peoples unwanted junk. Not long ago I was in one of my favorite stores and spotted this little gem.:
How cute is this??? The funny part (or maybe not - perhaps it's a sign that I need a 12 step program) I have NO idea what I am going to do with it. I just had to buy it. But it's great - I love the bright colors. It is all handmade -the little appliques were sewn on by hand - the quilting is hand done - it's brand new. It makes me wonder, someone put all that work into it and then it never got used - that is very sad. So while I was feeling sorry for this little quilt it just jumped out and landed in my shopping cart somehow. The best part was that I only paid $5.00 for it. So now what to do with it - I could sell it, I could give it away as a gift, or I might have a need for it sometime - there will be kids (or grandkids) coming along in the family one of these days. I just love finding things like this.
