FILLING MY HOARDING NEEDS

I've been gathering items again to feed my hoarding desires.Last Saturday Mr. Nook and I stopped at a few yard sales. I found this so very vintage fabric and knew just what I would do with it, see below.
This one piece was just the right size to cover my couch on the porch, love , love it!! I have a few small pieces as well, I may make a pillow or two. The recreation department in our little town is having a yard sale during the town wide yard sale this weekend. The recreation dept. asks for donations of STuff for the yard sale.
WELL, I get to see first hand (I work at the town office) what comes in for donations and I purchased this linen table cloth. I learned what linen is a few posts ago, if you love linens you can visit this post. This table cloth is a beauty... At the same sale where I purchased the cloth for the couch , I found this piece. I thought I would die this with coffee and rip to make trims to use in some of my creations. Feeding my hoarding here!! I LOve pretty trims.
A tiny little broom just for show.
I think I will make pin cushions out of these two bird planters, good idea??
When I spotted these my heart skipped a little beat.
I've been doing alot of thinking of new items for my studio. The big "Where Women Create" blog party is next month, can't wait, yipeeee!!
I think I will stain up this apron same time as the fabric.
Not sure what I will do with it after I stain it, I just know I don't like it so white.
I am happy with all of my new found items.
Oh, that recreation department yard sale is Saturday, so I will be on the look out for more items that I really don't need.
Thanks for stopping by.
