A few weeks ago, I went to a thrift store and found a beautiful dresser scarf. It fits very nicely on my dresser, and goes with my decorating scheme very well.
Here you can see a close-up of it:
When I was a little girl, my mom had a sugar and creamer hot pad set that her grandmother had made. We had a screened in back porch, and we had it set up as a "house". My mom let us play with those hot pads. A move later, and a different back porch...they got wet and then moldy. :-(
Every time I go into an antique store, I look for hot pads like the ones I played with. When Holly, Shelly, Kevin and I were in Ludington, we browsed through stores, and one of those stores was an antique store.
I found some that were made with the same pattern! I was SO very excited! They are a different color (the ones my mom had were blue and white), and they are a little bigger, but they go with my kitchen so well! I was just thrilled to find them!
Here they are:
