Thrifting Haul

Good Morning!!  I'm so excited!  This is my second post in less than a month!  Let's see if I can keep this up.

I thought I'd share a portion of my latest thrifting haul with you this morning.  I recently discovered the joys of shopping in second hand and thrift shops for clothing and other items.  I seem to have pretty good luck when it comes to the clothing.  

I found this cotton blouse from Venezia, and I can't wait for the weather to warm up enough so I can wear it.  It will be perfect for a Spring coord.  Here are some close-ups so you can see the details.

At the waist.

The sleeve.  It's really pretty isn't it?

I also scored several new sweaters, two of which are cardigans.  Here is the first one.

You can see the sequins all over it.  I took those off (anybody need any sequins for a craft project??) which took forever.  Here it is after.

It's such a lovely, soft sweater, I can't understand why they'd sew sequins all over it.  It's a silk, nylon, angora, lamb's wool blend, and a gorgeous soft pink color, too.  Sorry for the poor photo quality,  I couldn't get the lighting right so the color would show correctly.  I'm going to add some lace trim to the neck-line of it and I'll post those photos when I get it done.

The second cardigan needed some work done on it.  The knitting was coming undone in two or three places, so I had to 're-work' it.  I just love the colors and the patchwork pattern.

I need to finish the top I'm making to wear under it so I'll have a better coord to show next time.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
