Thrift Share - Fabric & Lace

 A quick business trip to Phoenix consumed the early part of my week, and I didn't get out to do hardly any hunting over the weekend...but I did manage to find a few goodies.
Who doesn't love a Quaker Lace Tablecloth?  I actually came across two of these at a shop, but the 2nd was in such bad shape I decided to leave it behind.  I opted instead for this beauty.  
It's not Quaker Lace, but wonderfully made none the less.

It's been a while since I'd picked up any fabrics...but when I found these 1980s Fabric Sample Squares this week (at 50% Off = $1.50 each) I decided to pick up a few sets.  There are some really neat patterns & the samples seemed to come from a Lazarus store.  KOJO still makes high-end fabrics for the Restaurant & Hotel industry.
I've blogged about my never ending Decorating Dilemma in my Den, and just can't seem to find the right pillows.  Since these are pretty large samples (24 X 24), I'm considering mixing and matching a few of the patterns to make some new Pillows for our couch. 
As usual, I couldn't resist a few books....
Westwind is huge & signed by both Author Walter Cronkite & Artist Ray Ellis
and I also learned that Lucy likes books too.  I wasn't paying attention when I was photographing some of my new goodies, and guess who started chewing on this Ottoman Empire in Drawings book. 
Oh well ~ the pages weren't ruined so maybe I'll commit a mortal book sin & individually frame & sell the prints (I typically wouldn't break a book apart to do this).

I hope everyone is having a lovely Father's Day Weekend & had lots of Thrifty Finds over the week.  Once again, I'm linking up to Her Library Adventures Flea Market Finds, and Costal Charms Nifty Thrifty Tuesday so be sure to check out all the other found treasures there...I know I will!

Cheers ~ Lara
