It’s been pretty hot here the past week or so, and unfortunately our AC stopped working 7 days ago. The repairman is coming tomorrow – as you can imagine this is a very busy time of year for AC companies and we had to take what we could get! The upstairs is about 90 degrees right now, so needless to say I haven’t spent much time in the sewing room.
However, I have been hitting up the thrift stores to get out of the house and enjoy someone else’s AC for awhile. Good thing, I did! People are doing a lot of spring cleaning right now and so there are some great deals out there.
The first piece is a wonderful little sewing caddy that for any UFOs. It’s a perfect fit next to my sewing chair – just haven’t had a chance to sit down with it yet.
Here is a cute little shelf I found at Goodwill. Each shelf can be removed and used as a tray. Also, the little “fences” around the shelves can be removed for a different look.
No sewing room is complete without a bunch of containers for all your sewing treasures! Who knows what will actually go in them, but they sure look cute. First is set of Mr. Peanut jars from 1980. My grandmother used to go through these peanuts like crazy! Who knew the jars would become collectibles!
Next is a set of wooden canisters with roosters on them. These were very popular in the 1950′s. I think there was probably a fourth canister (a larger one), so you had one each for flour, sugar, coffee, and tea.
I have such a good time seeking out these bargains and treasures – wish I could do it full time!
Keep it thimble!
