Next to fabric shopping, nothings pleases me more than a good day at the antique mall. It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday and I took a long drive on a route new to me. The road was dotted with lakes and farms, sheep grazing and daffodils nodding as I went by. I listened to a great sermon on "The God of the Impossible" on my Iphone using the Idisciple app. By the time I got to the antique mall, I felt as if I was filled up with a tall glass of water on a hot day.
The mall did not disappoint. I came away with a few treasures, some of which are going to my booth at our local antique mall. I was so thrilled to find vintage feedsacks at $3.00 each. They washed up nicely as did the doll quilt in the first photo and the apron in the third. I will be keeping these. The colors are so vibrant and pretty. I've got quite a bit of yardage for each feed sack so my mind is spinning on what to make.
I hope you are having a blessed Thursday, friends!

Beautiful! I didn't know you had a booth... makes me want to travel to Michigan even more! I had a booth at our flea market for awhile, but it really hard to keep it up on my own with family life:) (frampuna/aka Jamie Frampton)ReplyDelete
