I have lots of craft and tutorial ideas, but I don't have any time left to do those right now. So, I will share something else today.
One morning (sometime last week) when I woke up, for some reason I knew the day was going to be a good day...
B I N G O!
I had 20 minutes until I had to pick up the boys from school, so I decided to "peek" in at one of the thrift stores that I usually go to. You never know what you will find, so, just in case...
Then I found these:
I love vintage linens! I found four beautiful pillow cases. I have been collecting them, but finding ones with a pretty design in such a good condition is hard to come by. I love shabby chic style so I can use them as is or I might make a quilt out of them someday. With the blue one, I am even thinking about making Rachel a summer dress!
Also, I found these:
Two children's books. They both were in such good condition, when I got home and cleaned them, they look like they were brand new books. I especially love this one:
The book was printed in the early 1970's. See how pretty the illustrations are! They remind me of some of the books I read when I was a little girl.
When I feel like the pressures of doing the holiday boutique is building up I take a small break and looks at the pictures. (I am running around all over the place, saying "I need to do this and that" or " I don't have much time!") I guess there is a reason why I found them when I did...
I know these books will be perfect additions to Rachel's bookshelf. I hope she will enjoy them and treasure them in the years to come.
