Sorting

My view on vacation:



And my view at home . ..



I'm already hard at work cleaning, ironing and sorting all these wonderful vintage linens for The Goodness Shop. My mother has decided to part with some of her personal collection. Wait until you see! I also found some things to list from our many visits to thrift, antique and junk stores.

Here is one find that I intended to list in the shop but the more I handle it the more I love it:



It's a sweet vintage crocheted baby blanket. I love the design!



I believe it was made from a wool yarn and it shrunk up a bit when washed to give it that tightly knit look.

My favorite part is the way the maker put it together:



The back is lined with a silky material and then hand tied to the top like a quilt! What a great idea. It makes a hand crocheted baby blanket even more special. I love this! The blanket was steal, only $3.50 and I'll be keeping it. :) I'm sure you are surprised.

Check the shop this week for updates and I'll be back to share a wonderful swap I received from my dear from Dita!

Hugs,
RR

Hope you had a good Fourth!

I'll have to check your shop out soon...I've been on the lookout for bits o' vintage fabric. (And I'm too lazy/errrr busy to go thrifting for them!) :)

Welcome back! Oh, so the thrifting temptations begin... I can't wait to see all that you've acquired during your vacation.
The vintage baby blanket is so sweet.
