Years ago, I discovered garage sales. My kids, when young, would cringe if they saw me see a sign on the side of the road on a week-end because they knew if it was a garage sale…most likely mom would be stopping. As the kids grew up and life got busier for them, my garage sale week-ends went by the wayside. Once kids became adults and out of the house, it seems I’ve discovered Thrift Stores. If I’m looking for something, I’m always amazed that I usually find a perfectly good whatever that someone just didn’t need anymore. A few weeks ago, I went to lunch with my two sisters, and afterwards we hit a nice Thrift store in that town. Not sure why, but when I spotted this Linen scarf, it was a must have. I loved the design of it. It cost me a whole thirty cents.
I’ve yet to decide what I want to do with this lovely. I’ve photographed it thinking I could make textures, backgrounds, and/or brushes with it. Also, I found an idea at http://freepatterns.com called Grandma’s Linen Pouches. Those look cute so I may end up doing a pillow or something or fashion something.
After finding that Thrift Store find, I found more linen’s at a local Thrift. With those, I have fashioned some brushes that I’m hoping to put together to share with visitors to my site. [love making brushes with photoshop]

Love bargains and finding things to reclaim into something different and usable.
