Thrifty Friday

So the last couple Friday's I've had the opportunity to go thrifting.  I've been on the lookout for the perfect pot for my escapade's in fabric dying and laundry soap making.  Today I found it!  I thought it's been a while since I've posted about my thrifty finds and I figure today is is as good as any.

Last week I stopped at a local thrift shop and found all of the above minus the pot.  First I found the umbrella stroller...

But it is in need of a little TLC...

While the print is very boyish it is way to thin so I'll be recovering it.  Which is exciting...I've got plans to add some fun and necessary accessories as well, making the stroller practical but fun!

The scarf was $.75!

I love the fabric but I'm not sure what I'll make with it.  It's about 1/2 yard of fabric...maybe a handbag?

This is a fabric shower curtain...

I don't know about you but it is begging me to turn it into a lovely dress.  You know I just can't help but oblige ;)

I fell in love as soon as I saw her...

my lovely, perfect and wonderful ORANGE handbag.  She has pockets and zippers

just right for shopping...her only room for knitting :)   The best part is she was only $.99!  Yes, less than a buck!

Finally what I was really wanting...

A nice big pot.  I love to dye fabric but really needed a decent sized pot to do it in, plus I've started to make my own laundry soap (this is the recipe I use) and I love it but the pot I used last time was too I needed a big one.

When I went to pay for it the lady told me she had just put it out today!  We were meant to be!

Well, now that I've got all the crafty stuff it's time to start the crafting!
