October Thriftventures (yay ! I'm startin' early this month)

Sometimes a girl just needs to take her 2 girls and thrift!Oooh and what yummy results! In my previous post ,you see little Simba,this is exactly what my baby told me she wanted to be and to find that costume "tags on new" at the thrift store for 13.00 was quite a boon (a little more than I like to spend at a thrift ,but I bet its twice that at retail).Troll doll jewelry and barettes(Crooked Halo loves her some vintage trolls),only a dollar per card.A new piece of Tikiware 1.49,we have a whole assorted collection of this ware that we drink ice-coffee from.A wee little statue of a hand for 1.49,(I have this bizarro attraction to hands).A beautiful butterfly cannister also a dollar.My favorite find was this amazing embriodered tablecloth for 4.95.Each corner has these gorgeous huge colorful mum-like flowers rendered in beautiful detail.It is completed with a crocheted edge. It is most fiesta-filled! Last but not least Crooked Halo found this vintage Danskin leotard(way to spottem' baby,develop that eye), at 2.50. Its probably from the 70's and what is truly groovy about it is someone hand embroidered the little fiesta-like,Dia De Los Muertos flourishes.It somehow reminds me of Amandas sugar skull rag baby
As always you may click on any image to see more fiesta-ness.

I have an attraction to hands also (for my bedroom)... do you have pictures of your hand collection?

We would have played tug-o-war over that butterfly canister! I love those, I have a rectangular one similar on my desk. All the finds are fantastic, I haven't been thrifting in a week, hmm withdraw?? ;)
