THRIFTED

can you believe it has been over a month since i have hit up the thrift store? it is hard for me to believe it, but it is true! i needed to make a run for some doll-making supplies this morning and decided to make a quick stop into one of my favorites since it's right down the road. first i found the most amazing cloud and rainbow sheet to use for a quilt backing, or maybe cut up and use as fabric for dolls...

some good quality muslin and a nice linen remnant to use for crafts, or maybe make into napkins or a tablecloth. a rad high-waist, vintage, teal, anne klein skirt that is both light-weight, and in perfect condition! it needs to be altered a tiny bit, but i am going to make it a spring wardrobe staple. i'm thinking of wearing it with a soft tee or tank and a pair of sandals or wedges.

and last, but not least, some sweet pom-pom trim. i am a sucker for pom-pom trim when it comes to decorating kid's stuff and making crafts... and i am loving the cream and black pom-poms together in the different sizes!

i am hoping to be making some more trips soon to try nab some summer clothes for chloe. i love to grab old short-alls, and go crazy for vintage osh-kosh!

    1. i used to make regular weekly trips to my usual spots, but i have cut back quite a bit. i grew up thrifting with my mom, and every now and then we go together.
