Nifty Thrifty Tuesday

I hope everyone had a wonderful, relaxing Easter! 

I can't believe it's already time for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday.  Our hostess, Linda @ Coastal Charm, throws a great party so head on over to her blog and check it all out.

I have one thrifty find to show you today (one find but lots of pictures).  This bag of goodies cost $1.00!  I found it today at the same thrift store where I found the two tins of vintage sewing notions I posted about a couple of weeks ago.  I couldn't believe I found all of this lovely vintage lace for $1.00.

Here's some of the pieces of lace I found in the bag (most pieces were a yard or more).









I'm working on a way to keep all of this lace organized.  I'll be posting about that later this week.

Have a great week.

Jane

  3. What beautiful lace, Jane! You are really lucking out lately! How about wrapping them around those old fashioned clothespins. I see people do that with ribbon, but I bet it would work for your lace, too.

  16. Hi Jane, What a great find and for just a $1 WOW! Gorgeous lace. I was looking at your egg carton swap. How fun that would be. Such wonderfully sweet things you gave to each other. How do you find and join a swap? I think it would be fun.

  22. What a great variety of beautiful lace! I wonder if it was the same person that donated the tins full of goodies that you found? I'm looking forward to seeing how you organize it all. Hopefully somewhere on that amazing cubby, so that I can see it again! I think anyone who has a craft room would love to have one of those!

  26. Jane! Jane! Jane!! oh dear...

    I think I'm coming to the conclusion that you and I must never go thrift shopping together...ever never.

    I am much bigger than you are and it would be such a pitiful sight for me to take you down for that $1 bag of beautiful lace...right there...in front of everyone! hahahahahahaha

    Girl...I love it!!!!

    I just KNOW you are going to make something wonderful with pieces...then of course, I'll be jealous as always, all over again!!!!!

    Hope you are having a wonderful week!!!!!!!
    :)

  36. So much fun to play with all that great vintage lace. I'm really partial to the "tatting lace", there's just something about it. What an amazing find, it's all really beautiful.
    Love your header photo, reminds me of some of my family!
