Just the begining


Last Saturday Sydney and I ventured out to an indoor rummage sale/flea market. I was shocked how many people were there - both buyers and sellers. I guess everyone is as anxious as I am for garage sale season to get started! I didn't find too much, but I got great deals on the items I did pick up. For example, this pillow!
I got the pillow cover for a quarter. In fact, I got a whole stack of pillowcases for a quarter each, this is just my favorite today! Luckily I had a plain throw pillow at home that fit perfectly - it was meant to be I think. I love the print, and check out the button detail.
I know it's hard to see but those are hand sewn button holes.
And, remember these pillow covers I made last year for Spring? No? Well, anyway, I just pulled them out and I don't think they could match any better!
Like I said, meant to be! Good grief, do you think 5 pictures is enough for one pillow?! Can you tell how much I like it?


Have a great day!

Yes, it does look like it was meant to be. I too am eager for yard sale season to begin.
