thrifty adventures

Have you missed me? I have missed you! There is a lot of busyness going on for me right now. Some changes are happening for katie jean. All good ones! But I am going to keep it to myself for just awhile longer. So you will just have to wait.

But one thing that is not changing is my love for thrifting. I found this little tin at a favorite place of mine in Auburn. When I go there I tell my hub that I am going to see Mr. Paul, my boyfriend. The kids know this too! But I suspect that Mr. Paul would blush if I told him of any of this!

But I found this tin at his shop. It has no lid, but just wonderful illustrations all the way around the sides.

Here is the tin bottom. Mrs. Leland's Master Kitchen, Chicago, 1958. Isn't it all just so sweet! I bet she made some tasty treats too!

I also found this quilt top at Mr. Paul's. It was just a few $ too. Under 5, I'm sure. It is very simply made.

And the fabric print is very tiny too and faded in a few places. I am waiting for a warm day to wash it gently in my big tub. And let it air dry inside out of the way of direct sunlight. I think I will bring it to my next Modern Quilt Guild meeting and show it to the girls there too.

Now you can share your thrifty adventures with Stacey and I here too. Just grab our button and add it to your posting or sidebar when you do. Thanks!
