new tricks

You can't teach an old dog new tricks. I think that sums me up.
So what did I find at the thrift stores last week?

 Three more Liberty scarves for my vast collection.
The first  paisley in beautiful pinks and eau de nil......but....printed in a circle....love it and am wearing it as I type.

Two more old ones with my favorite sort of label, both a small foulard print.

  Rummaging around in the garage mini- warehouse I unearthed, under some tablecloths,  a whole pile of vintage gents scarves, about 25.  Good! some are up in my etsy shop already.

Now, who would throw out a vibrant, unfinished Ehrman  needlepoint kit? Do you know how much they cost??

For $1.99 how could I leave it?   I am very tempted to finish it myself.


  1. Ooh, I think that silvery grey one is my favourite Jan. Have fun if you decide to give in to temptation and complete those shoes.

  2. Loving these luscious goodies. What a dapper Dan the gent that wore these gems is or must have been.

    I used to needlepoint ALL the time. You're right---who would just throw it away? They were expensive hand painted canvases as I recall.

    You have some fab-O shops that you visit to always turn up these amazing textiles. I love those older Liberty prints.

    Hope you are well. I'm reading "Shooting Victoria" about the many attempts on the Queen's life. What about you?

  3. Lovely finds!
    You have a great eye finding treasures.
    Would love to go to that market.

  4. Wonderful finds! I think I might just have to succumb to going to a few yard sales over the summer to see what I might be able to score. Not that I need anything!!
