Holiday Insanity

The Christmas prep insanity has me in its grip this month.  Not that I've actually been able to DO much prepping as yet.  Between visiting family and family visiting us I've been lucky to keep the laundry under control and the dishes done!  I did get a chance to do some thrifting with my mom and sister this past weekend but I really came up with not much of anything for once.  The bins were slim pickings.  Don't know if that's due to it being a Saturday morning, or the holiday season?  Usually I thrift during the week so I'll hit them up Wednesday and see what it looks like then!
Here are a few things I've found recently...

The pink and red fabric below is another vintage cotton, probably from the 40s?  It's already cut out in 36" x 40 panels so maybe it was a never finished project?   It has some staining so I'm going to try to wash it before listing in the shop. 

The fab Mod fabric below is 37" wide and a cotton pique.  I think it would make fabulous napkins or pillows for a bright sunny room.  It's up in the shop already :)

Admit it, you had a pair of jeans like this fabric in the Eighties didn't you?  I know I did, and I LOVED them.  I've got two yards of this great denim up in the shop right now.  It would be an adorable dress or jacket for a little girl, or for the lady who's a girl at heart.

The last item from the way back machine is this plaid taffeta dress.  The perfect holiday party dress as far as I'm concerned.  Who says the 80's can't come back in style? This one's in the shop too this week. 
Thanks for taking a look!  I'm linking up with Apron Thrift Girl's Thrift Share Monday  Stop on by and check out all the holiday coolness going on!
