thrifting...

A break from the housework & a mountain of washing found us out & about doing a little thrifting this afternoon.  I found these two balls of yarn, the grey is cotton & the cream is cooking twine,  I can't wait to put them to good use.  It always amazes me what other people throw away... 
this beautiful linen tea towel & a handful of pretty white doilies, always a need for those, though my cabinet drawer might be saying otherwise...

  5. The linen teatowel is an amazing find, and I'm sure you'll do something with the twine creatively. Although they look nice as-is in the photo too. :)
