Thrifting Thursdays: Bless This House Cross Stitch & Recipe File

I don't know, I have a thing for cross stitch. Add the word vintage to it and I am all over it! I found this beauty at Goodwill and I am debating wether or not I want to keep it or put it in the Etsy shop. Those birdies just do it to me! Look how adorable they are. I think someone should get a traditional robin tattoo, but do it in cross stitch like this. Perfect.

I found lots of other cute stuff this week too, like a vintage 1980s dress that looks like it is straight out of a Scandinavian Anthropologie store, if there is such a thing, and an unused vintage yellow and green houndstooth pocketbook form the 60s. Oh, and the sweetest vintage 3T coat with a strawberry and daisy print on a blue background. That one is definitely going in the shop. My son is very happy with his 1980s Charlie Brown T-shirt I found at Sal's. He said, "Oh YES!" I also found some really awesome craft books. One that is perfect for father's day. Again, will be going in the shop. Speaking of the shop, I have been photographing lots and lots so hopefully some shop updates are going up soon. (Gawd, can I say shop one more time?)

Here's a cute recipe file I found. I was looking all over for one like this to hold my business cards/recipe cards when I did the cookie giveaway bonanza at Anthropologie and couldn't find one. Now I am finding them everywhere! Speaking of that event, I still have to post photos that the professional photographer took. They came out great. Maybe this weekend.


What about you? Anyone find anything cool? Or want to find something in particular?

    1. Ha! My tutorial would be about how to 1) shoot photos with 2 kids running in between your legs and/or 2) how to shoot photos when you have a precious 5 minutes before you have to run to pick your kid up from preschool.

  2. Do you still have the Bless This House cross stitch? My grandmother made stitched the exact same pattern for my family, but it was burned in a house fire years ago? I would be very interested in purchasing this from you

    Wow!!! I love this, so wish I had this chart to stitch for my son and his fiancee as they move into their new home together.
