I was out of town this weekend, visiting Pittsburgh to do a program at Pitt with a trip extension to visit family and friends (oh, isn't adding days to a work-y type trip to see loves wonderful?). While I was there, I was able to make a side trip with my mom to an antique/country living store that I simply adore. And, of course, I came home with a couple of treasures.
First, I got this tablecloth from the late 50's. It is in excellent condition... no stains or holes!! It's just about the perfect size for my kitchen table and I just can't wait to host a dinner party with it cheerfully greeting people to the table.
And, I got this fabric scrap. It was part of some curtains from the 1960's. It seems to be just slightly thicker than normal quilting weight. I can already see it in a cute little quilt!
I managed not to leave there with a fiesta ware cup and saucer, although I did love it so. I think the idea of trying to fit it in my carry-on was the deterrent... and nothing else.
What finds have you found lately?
