.Lacey, Vintage Heaven..........Ahhhhhhh!

I was finally able to get out and satisfy my thrifting tooth (sweet tooth???) Yesterday I slipped into the hospital thrift store after I visited my mom and got a couple of goodies. Today I went out to some yard sales and then a good friend of mine called me to come over and see the box of vintage goodness she scored for me and for my mom!!!! It was a box of runners, doilies, hand towels...all cute or beautiful.... Oh heaven! Above are the more colorful and cute linens and below is all the beautiful lace linens.....
The woman she bought them from owned a booth in an antique mall in Palm Springs and just couldn't do it any more so she sold these for a song at her home.....
These are my favorites...polka dot linens...so old and delicate but with polka dot whimsy....I have never seen these before and can't wait to use them!
Then these are some other goodies I got... some summer trashy novels for mom and travel novels for me....a cute lamb vase some candles ( I got 2 of the square ones from candlelite still in box) My friend gave me the scottie dog and doesn't everyone need some pom-pom fringe.... I know I do!

I feel like Beth who is always the queen of wonderful finds.... I also got 8 Chico's t shirts in long sleeve and short for $1 each.... I am a happy thrifter.......
Thanks for letting me share...I am going to bask in some lace! Hugs to you! karen.....

Hi Karen,
Missing you! I plan on going to the antique fair in July. Going to take my cousin/brother/sis-in-law, who all will be visiting me then. Hope to see you and Robin there maybe. I wanted to stay in touch. I made some friends at the stamp club and want to stay in touch, so figure I should do my part. I love your postings. I'm sorry to hear your mom is back in hospital. Hope she recovers fast and is out soon. I'm having hernia operation on the 20th of July and will be out of work for a week or two. Suppose to be an outpatient, one day thing, so all should be well. Take care! Arah

You've got some beautiful finds- I thought I saw a grape hotpad made with bottle caps.

I'm really jealous of the Chico's shirts- I love their clothes, but don't splurge on them too often, and hardly ever see them at estate sales.
