Thrifting the weekend away.....

Last weekend was so nice! Well, it was rainy and foggy...but I stayed up late crafting and slept really late...I also got some great finds at thrifty shops around town. Here are some of my favorite finds:

This owl was gold...I turned him green...lime green...isn't he so cool!!! I am still trying to find the perfect place for him.

These owls are going in my bathroom...on a shelf...they will look so cool in there!

Okay...I have wanted to create some spray painted birds every since I saw the idea over at Rachie's Place. Read more here.

In addition to all the cutie birds, I also found a box of vintage fabric at the flea market.....for $10...these are my favorites:

I already used that green polka dot stuff on my colored pencil sketchbook!

But there are tons of them....perfect for practicing my new sewing skills....

...and she even threw in some really cool quilt blocks!

Well, I hope you are having a great weekend too!!
