a good weekend for treasures

 Happy sweet day to you!
I finished another pretty star, and am loving how quick they are to make compared to the hexies, but I still love making those, too!
 These sweet pinwheels arrived for my quilt from the lovely Kerri of Sew Deerly Loved!! Aren't they pretty!
 Well, it was such a good weekend for lots of sweet new treasures!! The two estate sales I went to were so reasonable with prices, which was such a nice change, and no tax! :)
I found some Christmas goodies, linens, a beautiful lace tablecloth, plastic roses, a darning kit, and...
 One sweet item that I was excited to find was this darling rose hankie wash bag, with this cute typed poem attached.
 My cute new puppy pillow all washed and bringing some charm to my home!
 The second estate sale I only went the second day for half-off and came home with these adorable quilt blocks. I just love the kitties!!
  Some Halloween goodies!
 Wooden checkers, honeycomb bells, crocheted books,buttons, cards, and some lovely blue and silver ornaments that will be great for 4th of July!
And, these beautiful bread doilies, and a neat cook book from 1925. So, I think I am good on treasures for the next month! 

Well, wishing you all a lovely and creative week! And, sorry if I haven't come by to visit with you. I plan to be catching up and seeing what you have been up to today!



  1. Look at all your fantastic things! I even spy Halloween! PS. I promise to post your sweet cherries soon. I've got another project in mind to put near my sweet cherry valance. I smile every time I see them hanging at my window. Hugs!!

  2. Really good finds! Love the Halloween and the reflectors. Love the little hankie poem..I have a similar one. How many hankie poems were there?

  3. My friend and i have often commented on how expensive estate sales in TX are and then they charge tax on top of that! I haven't been to any here in MO yet, hopefully it won't be the same. I love your new treasures!

  4. Wow you really got some wonderful new treasures!!! I love all of it, it's all so sweet!! An adorable little message on the wash bag too!! Your star block is beautiful!! :) Wishing you a lovely rest of the week!! xo Holly

    Michaels has a new line of vintage craft supplies.

  7. Holy cow! You found so many cute things, Heather! I think the hankie poem/shirt was meant for you. Couldn't you make something similar, but stitch the poem on it? Too cute! And I Loooove the animal quilt blocks!
    What fun things!
