Been Junkin'...

I just wanted to post a happy, fun post. I have had the chance to hit a yard sale or two lately, go to my favorite, cheap thrift shop, and yesterday, Amy R. and I got to go to an antiques market. Fun, fun!!

The bottom stuff is what I got from the antiques market, except the embroidered runner-got that from Goodwill.

The aprons, cookbooks, sheet set and towel came from a yard sale. LOVE me some vintage goodness!! The sheets don't fit a bed in this house, but I want to make Lilly a patchwork duvet cover so I gather up sheets when I find them. Cheap yardage!!

The middle step's items came from my favorite little church thrift shop. I got a dress for Lilly, glass candle holder, magazine, three books-one is missing, and the doilies for $1.50 total. Love the lady that checked me out that day!!

I found this vintage duvet cover at the antiques market yesterday for only $10. It has some wear, so I may cut it up for the cover I want to make for Lilly. I still want to paint her room. We are trying to settle on a color. She used to want pink, then blue, then yellow{yay!!}, and now lavender. Aurgghhh!!!!! I would love to put beadboard on the bottom portion of her walls, but her room is huge and that would be $$$, but I would LOVE it and I could let her have two colors on her walls.

Found this window yesterday, too. I love the robin's egg blue and yellow on it. I think I may add chicken wire to it like my tag holder to hold all her little papery treasures or put a quilt in it. Not sure...any ideas??
I also want to say a huge THANK YOU for praying and the wonderful care packages y'all sent. Lilly loves everything and we really appreciate your thoughtfulness. A special shout out to the Cricut Card Fairies{and Crystal-the ring leader??}, too. We got so many cute, handmade cards. Love y'all!!
