You are NOT going to believe this...
Mr. Nook and I were on our way into town to have a bite to eat and pick up a few groceries.
It was probably 6:30 pm. I spotted a pile of goodies, including a suitcase (you know I am into the suitcases these days!) by the roadside with a sign nailed to a tree that said "FREE". Well, Mr. Nook turned the car around. Upon closer look I determined the suitcase was not for me, while lifting the case I thought, ghee this seems like it has something inside. I opened the case and it was full of linens, is this a mistake I thought. Looking at the sign again nailed to the tree, it did say Free.
I could hardly believe my luck.
I have been to this yard sale several times over the years, it is actually an antique shop in a barn. A few times a year they bring some of the stuff out onto the lawn and call it a yard sale.
As you can see, there is still the price tags attached.
I so love these dish towels.
These dish towels are very large size and they are quite different. I do not know my fabrics to well, they seem to be of a soft burlap so to speak. Does anyone know??
Well, you know I love to use doily's and such in some of my art work. Some of the towels I will probably keep myself, they are after all right up my alley.
I am thinking, I would like to try my skills at making some bags with the linens. I should just DO IT!!
Do you think a vintage dish towel would make an interesting bag??
Let me know what you think.
Thanks for stopping by.
