Nifty Thrifts

This weekend a pet rescue in our area held a giant fundraiser garage sale. It was amazing. There was a lot of scary junk, but hidden in the piles of christmas decorations and cheap vinyl bags were some pretty awesome finds. Look at this cute stuff!

Then I just eat another cookie and move on to happier thoughts about Dwayne helping me pick out cute fabrics. Anyway, I found some of this leftover knit from Ada’s...
