my loot

this is the little stuff I purchased this weekend. Did not spend much because really don't need anything else.

I bought these post cards for a friend in MO.... Michel these are for you. I just love the scenic pics and they look big here, but they are small.

I bought a few strips of this flowered cloth. I forget what they call it. Kind of think and has the feel of thick linen.
Love it, I plan on making a pillow or having my mom make me a purse. I can sew by hand, but don't think I can make a purse.

old pictures of course and these little scrap cards down below with bible versus, but what I really like most of all were the illustrations on the cards. Little sheep, birds, country scenes, berries.... tooo cute.

I also got a few old books and a raggedy ole pin which I will post soon.

I hope you have enjoyed these pics and have a wonderful week. I am off to Bloomington, Il on Easter sunday so I will try to post more before I go.

I believe the fabric is barkcloth. The colors are so vivid and pretty! You did good! ~Mindy

Had a lady come through our tent at Zapp Hall that had the most wonderful oversized tote she had made out of barkcloth. The strap was long enough to cross in front. You should so do was killer! Great finds. Debbie

I love old pictures too, I always wonder how they end up at a flea market and not with the family's they came from. I have tons of pictures my grandmother handed down to me, way back to my great-great-great grandparents, these are some of my most treasured possesions. Love the postcards too.
