Thrifty Finds!

We found some great stuff this weekend @ the thrift shops! I found 3 great sweaters for my Christmas craft project. They are gray, cream, and sage but now that I look at them though, I just want cream ones for my project so I think I need to find 2 more cream cable knit sweaters. I think I will make the gray one into a pillow and the sage one is my size so I might just keep it as a sweater. I also found that sweet little copy of Little Women for Kenley. It is from 1947 and the cover is brown cream and magenta with girls in poofy dresses on it. Its so cute! That blue dress is the main part of my costume for Christy and Jesse's costume party! Can you guess what I am going as? Brian and Kenley's costumes coordinate with mine!

I also got my ball gown today @ a consignment shop! The tag said 15 dollars but it rang up in the system for half off so I got it for 8!! Its already at the seamstress so I don't have pictures. Really it will end up being 58 dollars due to alterations though.. I am just too short for any dresses so no matter what I would have most likely had to have the hem altered so at least my dress was cheap!
