I couldn't pass up this set of pink pillowcases. They are made from a nice heavy cotton fabric. I washed them and they ironed up so pretty! I love the vintage design.
And THIS was my favorite find!! When I pulled this dresser scarf from the hanger, there were lots of frayed strings all around the edges. My first thought was that this piece was very damaged and that I would cut it up and make something , using the embroidery. When I got it home and washed it, I realized the frayed strings were only frayed edges from the hem on the back side of the piece. I am positive that the lace edge was done with a tatting shuttle and it is beautiful. I have this piece folded over and you can't see the whole scarf, but it is long, with both ends having identical embroidery. I trimmed the frayed strings, ironed it, and I am in LOVE with it! Seriously, in the store, one would think "why are they even selling this worn out stuff"? So, it was another happy week at the thrift store for me. Now, if we could just move along on getting that farmhouse in eastern NC!
