How do you feel about luck??? Well, I have to tell you.. I am not a lucky person at all.But.. boy do I feel like God has blessed me this past few weeks.
I have NEVER won anything in my life.. When ever some thing good happens..I am normally the last to know and its tooo late ,when I fnd out..
However.. I won the Oolong Crepe dress pattern and I nearly fell dead with a heart attack..ha I was so shocked!! Wow!!
Then,the first of this week, I told you how I found the hugh fabric sale at Hancock Fabric. This afternoon, I stopped by a yardsale..it didnt look like to much of anything..But to my surprise.. I saw some sewing notions in a box [lace, zippers,etc].I rummaged through it, picked out a few and ask the lady how much it would be..she said "oh... you can have the whole box for $2.00" I couldn't say yes ..quick enough. Then, right beside it was a box with a lid on it.I opened up the lid and oh my Lord, it was filled with vintage ric rack, lace , seam bindings, 35 zippers. I ask about it, she said. You can have both boxes for $2.00. Wow!!
Have you ever had TWO Christmas's in March.. I did.... I think someone needs to pinch me , and wake me up.ha
Well.... have I just had the best day ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Firstly.. it's a toddler free weekend.. yay! (little miss is staying with nanna and pop)
Secondly.. last night on our way to the movies.. my husband pointed out a sign that said 'Vintage Fashion Fair'.. in our neighbouring suburb.
Thirdly, I was able to go on my own today and came home with all this! I am buzzing right now!
ok, so it wasn't all bargains.. but ignore the price tags, because I know how to do a deal! I got - 21 patterns, 3 home journals with included patterns, 6 pieces of fabric, a belt, 2 necklaces + some lace & decals. For a little over $100. Which is certainly not 'fill a bag for $5' .. but really how often does that happen! I'm pretty happy that I managed to find all this in just one morning and for what I think is a pretty reasonable price.
(For any Brisbane people - it's at the Mt Gravatt showgrounds, and is still on tomorrow - it's mainly clothing & accessories, but there are patterns and fabric in the mix too.)
