spring break goodies #1

I didn't do just a ton of antique/thrift/flea market shopping during Spring Break, but I did a little. And what I did do was great, here are a few of my finds...

Lot's of the things I found had a "blue" or "sewing" theme. 
I found a great oval embroidery hoop, a great aqua wooden box and a red tape measure.


I also I found this precious itty bitty pin cushion pillow. I just thought it was so cute and adorable that I had to have it. I have found myself collecting little pin cushions lately, not sure why...

I also found these oversized blue buttons - I could not pass them up. Have no idea what I will use them for, but isn't that half the fun of getting something like this?

Next I found this great French Stripe towel material at a quilting shoppe in Mt. View. I have never seen this exact material before and I am head over heals. I keep thinking of places I could use it and other ways I could use it. I mean it is pretty much burlap and red ticking together at last. So great!


I immediately came home and laid it out on my dining room table. Oh, swoony!

Also, as a side note, when I went to put up this post I noticed Blogger has a whole new look and format for blogging which allows you to make your pictures XL, which I did.
Can you tell? What do you think?
