Today's great finds

Jellyfish, Little Clam and I took a trip to a local thrift store today and found some wonderful treasures that I couldn't wait to share with you! (Yes - even before I ironed any of them - you will have to excuse the wrinkly or folded state of the fabric in each case!


2 linen place mats that were sold with this funky green floral square (I'm not sure what I am going to make out of these beauties - but I will think of something!)


Applique detail
A set of 6 blue soft cotton napkins. These have hand appliqued  and embroidered flowers and leaves, and they are hand hemmed and a design stitched on the hem. I'm wondering if I should use them as they are, or if I should stitch them into something else??? They don't appear to be used.

A pair of "ducky" wellies for Jellyfish


A white cotton skirt with white embroidered flowers, crocheted inserts, and pin tucks.
 



And the final treasure... a silk and cotton blend top with tags on! I love the fabric in this one... too bad my post pregnancy tummy looks a bit like someone shoved a pillow up my top! I'm wondering  if I should redesign it into something else... what do you think? Help.
