Wait...does that look a little smooshed to you? That's what I thought, and the manager helping at the register when I was checking out agreed. For $1, I wanted it anyway, and I could possibly flatten it out.
Does it look a little better? I ironed it out, and tried to pull it tighter before taping it into the frame. Meh, cute little thing, anyway. It joins the two other embroidery or "crewel work" as I've heard it called. The first one I bought is huge and awesome.
I bought it last June at Family Outfitters (I drive by it on my way home from work, I get a lot of stuff there.) From what I recall, it was a glorious $5. It's about 3 ft long, so is good deal. It's hangin' in my brick-exposed kitchen.
That one that I bought last Spring is also in the kitchen. It was $1.99 from the local Goodwill and did I mention it's 3 dimensional? Can't really tell, I guess. Take my word, those branches are totally coming out from the rest of the plant.
I also picked up a vintage purse for $2.99.
And this fabric remnant (a little over a yard), and this bag of fringe (both $0.99). I don't know why I have fringe.
Also clothes. Also, shame on me (weekly self-flagellation for my indulging in thrift store collecting.)
I like green. I managed to find three different items in my favorite tones of green, and that's awesome to me
It was cold, today. It was a strange day. I'm gonna have a post on that tomorrow. Linking up at A Living Space and Sir Thrift A Lot.
