Thrifting Plunder

Eight pillowcases found a new home with me after a recent thrifting adventure with Katie Jean. Most of them will become dresses for Charlotte. The blue gingham pillowcase even has a ruffle trim. And here's a closeup of the pale vintage floral:
Lovely. And I also scored big with a $4.00 full-sized, shabby chic duvet cover in excellent condition, that matches C's room perfectly (she'll be in a big girl's bed soon.)



The day also brought eyelet, bias tape (of course) and napkins fit for a tea...



We thrifted on. I indulged in one true extravegance for the day. This find was meant to be. Just the week before, I had stumbled upon these somewhere on the web. Thinking to myself, "They make carerra marble egg cups?? I'd never pay $10 a piece though!" True and true. At $1 a piece, I bought five. I love marble and I love eggs. Breakfast has never been so delicious.

I am sure you will make some wonderful things from the Pillow cases. Can't wait to see C in the blue one. I once had a marble egg. I wonder where it is now.
