A few good finds!

Not much time to blog, but it's not too time consuming to show you a few pictures. I am forever taking pictures, so here's a few of some treasures I've found. 
This nice and very colorful log cabin quilt I picked up at a favorite thrift shop a week ago. Sold today at the farmers market! 


Yummiest Irish Crochet collar, I bought this in June and it now resides in  England (Ebay). A beautiful old piece, you don't find this type of work too often. I should have kept it, but.......

Look at that work!
Have a great weekend!!

Hi Lucy Sweetie...
I love, love this post. Oh my gosh I can see why this quilt sold, it is breathtakingly beautiful. I not only love the pattern but the colors are so darn happy. Just makes you want to smile.

That collar is gorgeous. I can see why someone grabbed it up as well. Are you kicking yourself for letting it go? Oh what a beautiful piece. Thank you for sharing it's beauty this evening. I love it.

This is the Miracle Weekend makeover. I am one of the hosting sites. For every comment left, Guideposts magazine will pay a dollar, to the next cancer makeover patient. Please stop by and read the story about 9 year old Charlie, and bless me with a comment. Out goal between the 4 or 5 blogs is 5,000. I know we can do it. I would appreciate it, if you pass the word around to as many friends as possible.

Thank you sweetie for a wonderful post. I love it. Have a glorious weekend. Country hugs from Phoenix, Sherry

Love that quilt! It's no surprise that it sold so fast. I might be having regrets for selling that pretty lace collar, but I'd be featured on Hoarders if I kept everything:-)
