Vintage linens and a goodwill find

Well I went and did it again.  I told myself that I did not need another soup tureen but I was at goodwill the other day and I found this.  I think I have a problem.  They are just too hard to resist.

It was only $6.99 and it is huge.  This is the biggest one I have so far.  It doesn't have the ladle and there is a chip on the inside lip but I won't be using it for soup anyway.  I like to use these as vases for silk flowers.

As I was walking out to my car a lady driving by stopped and congratulated me on my find.  It will be perfect for next Spring.

I also came across some vintage linens and lace on Ebay.  Not sure what I am going to do with them yet but I'm sure I will think of something.  I have some that was my mother's and grandmother's but I hate to use them for projects.  Here are a few pictures, there is much more than what is here as there are lots of smaller  pieces.

I can't wait to get my craft room done (and the rest of the house) so I can get going on some craft projects. I have so much sewing to do but just can't find the time right now. I am pushing for the craft room to be done this weekend but I also need to get the patio furniture spruced up too.  So much to do and so little time.


  1. That is a very exciting find! I'm interested in seeing what you are going to do with the Lace.

  2. I love a bargain and a great find!
