Recently I have been lucky to find a few bargains, and now my creative wheels are spinning again.
Most people in my real life don’t get the vintage linen thing, some days I cannot even pinpoint why I like them so much – I just do. Recently, I added a few new lovely prints to my collection. Some of you out there "get it", right? My grandparents had sheets in the print below. Is it weird that I totally remember fabrics from when I really young?
I purchased some Amy Butler Love fabric for the binding on the jelly roll quilt top I made not long ago, but I still wasn’t sure what to do for the backing. I was at Target on Saturday and they had 100% cotton sheets on clearance sale. There was a flat sheet in the perfect shade of aqua for this quilt! It will be a plain Jane backing, but easy (no piecing) sounds pretty good right now. There were other cool colors as well – I’m half tempted to go back and stock up!
Target also had window panels on clearance sale. We finished our basement a couple of years ago and still haven’t hung window treatments in our family room. This room is decorated in earth tones with a cherry wood fireplace and furniture. I found some window panels that will be perfect for the 2 windows in this room.
Absolutely cannot beat the price! (still selling for a lot more on the Target website) Such a good deal, I even grabbed an extra panel for fabric to make some coordinating toss pillows.
We have been contemplating moving our 2 year old to “big girl bed” - meaning some redecorating will be needed. Last year I picked up a twin sized Simply Shabby Hydrangea duvet (large print below) at the Salvation Army for $2.00 – Target gives a lot of their unsold surplus to the Salvation Army (around here anyway). I didn’t have a matching pillow sham, but I just found some coordinating window treatments on clearance sale at Target.
Almost 4 yards of fabric between the two shades – plenty for a sham and bedskirt to match!
And I know it has been a long time, but another furniture makeover is on the agenda. The following dresser (which was given to me) and matching nightstand.
Bargains make me happy....Target makes me happy.
