More Thrifted Goodness....

Yesterday I took the girls to Gladewater to spend the night with a friend. On the way home I stopped at the Goodwill there to see if I could find some camping utensils and door mats. No luck. But I did manage to spend a few bucks on these beautiful things!



The pink floral(third from left) is what my Mama Mammer(mom's mom) had on her bed when I was a little bitty girl. I loved it then and love it now. It was labeled as a twin flat but is actually a full-size! The other floral is a twin flat and the blue one is a twin fitted. I'm not sure what I'll end up making out of them, maybe a night gown from the darker pink floral. I got the pillow cases for our camping pillows, love it that they are so similar but none actually match.



Now this set, I LOOOOVE!! My grandmother(dad's mom) had one like the larger one but I don't remember her having the smaller ones unless she kept them in a cabinet. This set is missing the next to largest one(I think it would be the Sugar one) but the rest of them are in great shape with no dings or dents and just a bit of the decals scratched off. I'm debating spray painting the lids back to solid black, they are missing about half their black coating. As soon as I get them washed out, I'll start using them. When I got them home, I found that the biggest one still had flour in it!

I never did find untensils for us but did manage to get a kitchen runner that I cut in half for our tents.

Oh yeah, before anyone asks, and I know someone will. I did make that quilt. Its a kid quilt for Amy and is square. I did my own pattern both on the piecing and the spiderweb quilting. It is one of my favorite quilts I've made.

Here's some better pics:
