Junk Lovin Crazed

This past weekend was awesome!  When hubby gets home from the road, we always have a 'family together' nite; then, he and I have a lunch and/or dinner date complete with thrifting!  It's usually a two-day event for us!  I love my husband!

Yarn, Yarn, and More Yarn!  Eyelash blue fur that I will use as hair for a cloth doll creation!

2 more knitting looms and letter beads
(Alyssa loves to make name bracelets)!

Of course, MORE fabric!  Check out the "Smurf" fabric!

a small bag of scrap fabric.
Perfect pieces for the Teeny Tiny Nine Patch Challenge and the Asterick Quilt-Along!

fleece blankets for quilt backing

and, wooden spools!

Needless to say, I had a blast!  Have a Great week!

Until next time,

Peace and Junk Love!

Junk Love...wordless (semi)

Box of shiny stones for $2 bucks!  Great for jewelry crafting!  I'm sharing this find with my mother-in-law, who loves making jewelry and was so excited when I sent her pics of these beauties!

Peace and Junk Love!

Junk Love

I not only sew, I also like to knit!

This was perfect!  I'm learning to knit socks and this is where I'll store all of my sock yarn!

Now, for my fabric addiction!  It finds and calls out to me...wherever I go!

I can't resist y'all!

Today is the last day of school!  So the children and I will be busy bees!  Alyssa (7) will get a chance to really work on her hand crank sewing machine; Alexis (17) will be sewing with us; and, my Charlie (10) will be crafting!  He loves to make pipe cleaner characters!  He's been doing so, since he was 5 years old!

Of course, we will frequent the pool (it's been 100+ here, lately)!

Stay cool and thrift often...
Peace and Junk Love!

A Re-Fashion, Recycle

I should have taken a 'before' photo of this project, but forgot to.  Sorry!

This fabric was once a women's sheath (dress).  I found at my favorite place, the thrift store, and it was only $2.99!  I love the pink flowers!

The white cotton halter lining and underskirt is a perfect flat bed sheet for $1.99!

She loves it!

...and, so do I!

Junk Love Wednesday...Vintage Fabrics and Stuff

Happy Wednesday!

This is a wonderful week!  One of my closest friends whom I've known for more than 25 years has come to visit me!  This is a BIG deal!  You see, my friend DOES NOT like to fly!  So, when she promised to come and see me this week (via an airplane), I was ready to forgive her if it did not happen.  And, to much surprise and gratefulness, she made it here!  We're having a blast!

My Junk Love this week is fabric!  You can never have too much fabric!  Right?!


other vintage fabrics

Included in this bag of fabrics were several pieces of a vintage quilt with names hand sewn on them.

I have no idea what I will do with these pieces, but I thought they were very cool!  Maybe, I can incorporate them into another quilt?  Here's a close-up of one of the pieces.

Well, I have one more full day of hanging out with my friend, before she's off to the airport on Friday morn to return home!  We're going fabric shopping and I'm sewing some pretty headbands for her!

I'm grateful to have a friendship that has lasted many years!  Until next time...

Peace and Junk Love!
