I am seriously obsessed with vintage sewing trims and I have *never* seen that plaid bias tape. Please lock your doors. I cannot be held responsible for my actions. Plaid! -amy
PS I may have to grab some of those Christmas trims too while I'm at it. :-)


I really hate putting bias tape on anything, but I've been hoping for ages to find some of the old printed ones, why? I don't know, but I think you're very lucky to have these!

Your bench/table turned out lovely :)

Digging that fabric on the bedspread - definitely a "made me smile" print. Also obsessed with rick rack and you were wise not to turn down that bias tape....those prints are great! Good finds as usual.

I'm having a rick rack attack right now, how do you find this great stuff?
I live the the Steel City area, so of course,

Today I decided not to go to the flea market as I thought I just had enough supplies by now, but reading your post makes me doubt! And I was so proud of myself :-(.
Thanks for commenting on my post, I was going to answer you, but I couldn't make a reply, so I waited for you to post again. You told me that you liked the birdcage (no I don't think you have Alzheimer, but it is a little while ago) and I was reliefed because somebody else told me: I like the birdcage with the candles. That was it. That birdcage was the before version! Have a nice Sunday! Here I should be preparing Monday as it's almost midnight.


AAK! You always get the MOST AWESOME stuff! I need to move!
Love all that trim! I can totally see cute school clothes there too.
That bench turned out great too! Leave it like it is for now. So often I buy with the intent on painting something, then I get lazy and end up happy I left it alone!

I love the ric rac and the red and white towel! What wonderful supplies and neat things you found! I love seeing what treasures you find!


$2 bedspread as in Duvet cover? My old duvet covers are one of my most favorite things. :-) And that rosy print is FAB-U-LOUS.


The new stool/side table looks great now. I have a similar one in the basement that needs an overhaul. I might almost be inspired enough to tackle it now. Thanks for sharing!


I'm in the middle of a huge trim obsession! You really made out!

This funny lady really makes bias tape look cinchy - did I spell that right? I'm not sure I've said that word since 8th grade. http://angrychicken.typepad.com/angry_chicken/2008/03/bias-tape-tutor.html

Oh, I will write more later but for now I have to say...yeah Steelers! That was a good game! This is my team (I even have an embarrassing teenage photo to prove it.) We hardly ever see the games here in Iowa. I knew since they were playing the Vikings I had a chance. Sure enough! That is where I was Sunday afternoon instead of cleaning my kitchen counters of auction booty!


That bedspread is fab!! And rickrack - one can never have too much!!


That's definitely the best collection of bias tape I've ever seen! Gorgeous rickrack as well - looks like you hit the jackpot!


That bedspread fabric is to die for. AND i have been looking for exactly that rickrack to bind a quilt i did with scraps. I think scrappy rickrack would be perfect. Please say you are selling it. :-D


oop, i meant bias tape. :-)

It's really hard to read your posts. How do you find this stuff? People in TX musn't have worn plaid bias tape. I went to an estate sale on Friday night with high hopes (again with high hopes) and came out with two checked cloth napkins...one with a moth hole. Don't you feel bad? It's okay Mrs Oodles...I'll keep visiting. You have a gift with displaying your finds and I love the way you write.
PS We are a dedicated Patriot's family living in Cowboy country. Now do you feel bad?


Love those trims -- the rickrack colors are yummy and the printed bias tape -- so cute! Your bench turned out really elegant with it's pretty new cover -- I want to see some staged photos with the tea layout.

The bedspread reminds of those we had as kids-loved it then and love it even more now! Only wish I still had it...
