~TATTERED PROJECTS FROM TAG SALE FINDS~

~ANY CLUE WHAT THIS WILL BE?~
 
Over the weekend my Miss K and I found some fabulous things while we were out tag sale shopping!  My favorite finds were two sets of brand new tab curtains!!! I'm planning on turning them into several tattered cotton projects.  We also found another set of gently used curtains for a total of three.  One was white, one cream and one a soft taupe...almost a stone color.  Anyway...can't wait to show you what they are being made into!
 I'm always amazed at the great prices you can find on brand new things!  The cream tab curtain were 63" long (two panels) and were marked down to .99!!!  Great fabric!
 The white panels (two) were 84" long and were priced at $3.98!  Still a great deal.
The taupe panels (two) were also 84" long, but were the priciest at $4.98.  The fabric on this set has that wonderful washed look and feel to them...like really great cotton sheets that have been laundered just enough!  After a quick wash each one was ready for it's transformation!  I'll be sharing more this week.  Any guesses as to what I'm making?  I've been having so much fun working on new product for my shoppe (which is down for construction until next month!)...

Now~here's a little update on our wood floors~

All the prep work has been done in our home and our new wood floors will be installed this Wednesday.  Walls and door openings have been enlarged (or completely opened up), old ceramic tile has been removed, concrete has been cut out, pipes and vents have been moved and new concrete poured.  It's all been grueling work and my home has been torn up since New Year's.  You can't imagine how excited we are to finally walk on something other than dusty cement!  The flooring is the one major thing my guy and I have hired out.  Sooo worth it to us to pay someone for their experience and expertise!

This is going to be a full, hectic week for my Mr. AGPMan and I'm going to work hard at staying OUT of his way!  I'll be sharing more pics tomorrow or Wednesday on just what's been keeping me busy and the flooring crew working on our home!

Hope your Monday is fabulous...

Love to you...

Dearst Rebecca,

Love your lace patchwork; are you making some bigger sized pillows out of them? Wonder what they will turn into.
So glad that you got to shop with Miss K, she will follow you one day in making pretties too.
So glad that the renovation is taking shape and ending soon.
Love to you,

Mariette

You have the best finds in your area. Our area is pretty dried up from such finds though I do keep an eagle's eye on my favorite places. We found a sette a couple weeks ago that I will recover to my liking. I thought that was a huge score especially for what we paid, next to nothing! Fabric, embellishments, vintage buttons.. .not so much. But I've had fun finding old furniture and such and redoing.

I also see fabric in everything! Curtains, bedspreads, clothing etc. Some fabrics in clothing are no longer being made so when I catch a bit, it usually ends up being something special. I look forward to seeing all your new items.
Hugs
