I also did some thrifting on the west side of Madison with my mom. She was able to hit her crafty stores and I was able to stop by the Odana Antique Mall, the Salvation Army, and another Goodwill.
framed 1890 magazine art: $29, Odana Antique Mall
yellow chair: $10, Savers
Nancy Drew: two from Half Price Books ($3 apiece), one from Salvation Army ($2)

As you can probably intuit from these photos, I started a new collection:VINTAGE SHEETS! I'm kind of ecstatic...
I've seen plenty of bloggers posting photos of their gorgeous, soft, dreamy-looking patchwork quilts created from pretty vintage sheets, so when I kept spotting the same sheets for $1.99-2.99 at the thrift stores, I was inspired to take action. I'm sure the last thing I need is a new collection (other collections include buttons, handkerchiefs, old quilts...and I'm adding things all the time) but I couldn't resist: I love eclectic, unmatchy, easy patchwork quilts above all else. Oh, and floral print. Did I mention that I go wild for floral print?!
