I've had the pleasure of an auction and quite a few garage sales over the past 2 weeks. I haven't taken pictures of all the treasures, but just had to show you two of my favorites.
This table was holding items for sale at a garage sale. Usually when you see a piece used for display and ask if it's for sale, it's not...but, this time it was!
It's has a beautiful rust patina and get this, it's collapsible!! It's a folding table and the legs easily fold down into the top. It needs a good cleaning followed by a spray coat of finish and will be just perfect.
On the same outing, I found a LARGE bag of vintage fabric scraps! The table is 4' by 2' so you can see this a quite a pile. They were all compacted too. Once I started "fluffing" them the pile grew!
I picked out a few of the scraps to show you why I was excited.
A great variety!
Just some seriously cool vintage patterns.
It is possible this may not excite everyone :)
Besides all the scrappy projects that I will use these in, I'd like to come up with some sort of display to just showcase vintage prints. I keep thinking of small squares of the prints on a canvas. I'd love to hear any ideas that you may have!
