Getting started.


Yesterday I went with Sam's mother to Fabric Depot, a huge fabric store that has a great selection of 1930s feedsack cotton prints. After considering many other options (kittens? cherries?) I found this perfect bow print. Soooooo cute. I cant wait to get started on it, but I am without an iron, plus I really should list some things in my shop.
We also stopped at a nearby Goodwill. I haven't been to an actual store in a long time, it really has gotten quite expensive, as Daddy Likey expresses in this oh so true "letter" to them. But I did find some things I really liked, like this giant floppy sunhat I think will go well with my 30s dress, a couple of jars for buttons, and spoon with an "M" on it. Or maybe a "W"...
I also found a fabulous shiny brite ornament still in the box, but missing the top. I've been ecstatic about vintage shiny brite ever since my aunt, who pretty much got me started on vintage, said she loved the cute little ornaments, and I think she has some lights too. Lucky Ducky. I also found some great items for my shop, but those pictures went to my mailing list, you'll have to wait until next week if your not on it :)
