Ooooh, I've....

been so good....haven't been to a garage sale in months but on the way home from church I spotted one and had to stop, well not had to but wanted to, and I'm glad I did. Look...what I found.... this sweet apron someone made. It's really more a hostess apron and I love it's festive colors....

cute little pocket for a little hanky or mint.....bound in red seam binding....

with a pretty little bib.....why would someone part with this sweetie? Not to worry, I appreciate the time it took to create....it's come to a good home and I'm going to enjoy it. I also found this pretty lunch box tin,

originally it was filled with cookies. I just thought it was very pretty....

I like that it is a garden scene, there is a blue bird and can't forget the little heart.... I think I'll put some stitching items in it. Now I need to find some things for Goodiewill, my new motto "in with some out with some"....have a happy day and week....hugs, Linda

I love both items Linda. That is such a feminine and crisp looking apron - perfect for a hostess. The tin is certainly lovely too and will make a good place to keep your cross stitching supplies. Good for you.

You sound like me. I drop off some at Goodwill's back door and then drive around front and buy something else!

You always find the neatest things.
That apron is great. Good finds I would say.
Have a good day.

Love the apron but just think the lunch tin is adorable. I think you need to go off and sit on a park bench with goodies in it! :-) Don't forget to take your stitching along. Love your little pillow on the last entry.

What a sweet apron and tin.. both perfect for you!

What little stitching project will you put in your new tin? Maybe something Jane Austen??

Hi, Linda -- it has been so long since I stopped in. I have to get back into the blogging mode. I have tried to stop my yard sale and thrift shop visits. We may be moving soon and I have to get rid of some stuff,not buy more. Love the apron - I have a few vintage aprons, too.

You must be very strong to not have done much garaging..I love them and if I see one, I have to stop. Great find on the apron!!

You scored Linda! That apron is so pretty and that tin would look good on my shelf. LOL Have a fantastic Labor Day weekend. I think we are just going to try to stay cool. Maybe go to a movie.
