I went shopping

We went to a family reunion in Hastings, MN on Saturday, so on Sunday that left me with spare time. I didn't want to go shopping, but what else was there to do? We hit a couple of antique shops and there were a couple of things I just couldn't afford to not buy.



There are 16 of these adorable blocks, four of each pattern and it set me back $12.00. Two of them have a scotch tape stain on the edge and I'm not sure how to go about getting that off but if I can't I guess it will just add to the charm.


This little table topper was $8.00. My original plan was to cut it up and make post cards, but it appears to be in perfect condition with no stains, so I don't think I can bring myself to do that.

And this little number is a gorgeous table cloth I thought was a steal for $10.00. I didn't take a picture of the full table cloth because it desperately needs to be ironed and it would have been a terrible injustice to this beautiful cloth to post it unironed.

Cute stuff, Cindy! I really like the tablecloth. I use Simple Green on stubborn spots and get good results.....

Oh wow Cindy! You really struck gold there, especially with those adorable blocks. Doesn't it make you wonder why people go to all the trouble of stitching them, but not finish the quilt? I look forward to seeing the whole tablecloth after it's been washed and ironed - such a lovely design.
