A really good deal

Thanks for the Anniversary wishes we did not do a lot but had a nice long weekend anyway. It was our town's yearly celebration so we got our fill of parades and hot dogs and bands.



We did go in on Saturday morning and hit a few garage sales and an antique store or two. We did not have a lot of luck but on the other hand I was just hoping for "that really good deal". I felt really lucky when I found this pink chenille throw. I scanned it so you can get an idea of what it looks like. It has one or two small tears in it and it had a price tag of $2.50 on it. I couldn't believe it. I had to look at it twice to make sure I did not miss-read it or something. I was thinking I could use it as a cutter or just repair the holes and someday use is in a spare room. Lilliana took one look at it and said she wanted it for her bed. My heart fluttered as she usually turns up her cute little nose at things from yesteryear!!! Awww she does a mamma proud!!

Very nice! It's funny that most people don't see the fabric potential in things they throw out. But then, not everybody sews, I suppose.

That throw reminds me of the ones my Grandma had on her beds when I was little. What a great find!
