Thrifting Treasures, another finished sewing project and an awesome giveaway!

As promised here's a bit more about what's been going on around here!
First I whipped up this storage basket this morning for Sew And Tell Fridays over at AmyLouWho's Blog using Osnaburg and some of my vintage sheet stash... The Finished size is 10" wide x 7" tall x 7" deep

I like it ;)




Earlier this week I scored at a local thrift shop..it was half off day! Here's just some of my finds..

I love the lines this chair has..and apparently so does Cleo LOL This is getting Blue ocean breeze and new upholstery and will be staying for my kitchen.


This shelf is being redone in green for Minion 3's bedroom




This ethan allen table will get fire engine red base and legs and a chalkboard top and be taken to the local consignment shop!




I'm not entirly sure about this one..It may or may not stay, I'll need to decide how to redo it first though.


This would be a fabulous dresser...or Buffet! It is HUGE! I got an outstanding price on it and it will be up for sale soon. There were more, but these were all I got pictures of so far. Will post more later. Lastly for today..Jennifer over at the Vintage sheet Blog is having a giveaway..The prize? Some of Moda's new repro line Dream On by Urban Chicks!!
Head on over and play along, but don't be too upset when I win ;)

I love that box/bag! My daughter needs something like that to keep the bazillion little papers and "treasures" she is currently hoarding.

Love the clean lines of your box! You are the second one to post about the Osnaburg towels. I am going to have to look for those.
