Elizabeth Update and a Little Thrifting

Gentle Friends, I thought I would bring you up to speed with Elizabeth.  I am still stitching along on her, and here's a snaperoo..


There's still quite a bit of white space left and that little pink acornis a bit odd, but she's still lots of fun to work on.

Over the weekend we hit a few Thrift/Consignment stores and a couple of Estate Sales, and all I can say is that it was sort of a bust.  But, that's how it is sometimes, and I always think "there's always next weekend."  Here a snap of the bits I picked up....


....  a couple of books and some movies.  All fun stuff!!

That's about it for today sports fans, thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Really love this sampler. Looks like some fun thrifting, too!

I collect Playbills (oldest is from 1934, original Anything Goes with Ethel Merman) as well as Vinyl LP's from Original Cast Recordings. Always a great day when I find something new to add to the collection! If you collect books on old Hollywood, I think I may have a few I could mail you. Let me know.

Your Elizabeth is looking good! Hmm, a movie about Bertie and Elizabeth, huh? Who's in it?

Ooh, "Berite & Elizabeth" looks like an interesting find. Beautiful day out today, but the weekend is supposed to see temperatures plummet once again.....just itching to get out to the flea market or some yard sales. As you say, there's always next weekend.
