Antique Shops

Where does the time go......I can't believe how long it's been since I posted something. I've made a new bag and will take a picture soon. For now I'll show my little antique shopping purchase from the weekend. I love the crocheted potholders, especially if they are red and even more if they are a dress or something cute. I found this red, green and yellow combo and really had to bring it home. These little gems are not easy to come by in my area, so it was a real treat to find this one.
These are a couple others potholders I found on previous trips to antique shops. Next to fabric shopping, antiques are my next favourite shopping trips.


Happy Shopping!

It's a good thing that we live at opposite sides of the country, Wendy or we'd both cause a lot of damage in fabric and antique shops.

I can just imagine us on a shopping trip together. Yikes!

Love those pot holders!

Oh I agree - I just adore those darling little dress potholders. I have several that I've collected over the years - as well as other colored ones - so cute.
