Junking Finds

I just have to share some of the recent finds from Antique Alley.  I look forward to Antique Alley twice a year.  I love to go junking!  The third weekend in April and September, and it is always HOT.  It will be wonderful weather before and after, but the day I go is unbearable!  It is miles and miles of yard sales, barn sales, estate sales, outdoor fleamarkets. It goes from Itasca to Cleburne, TX.   I cannot believe what I found!  I got two old quilts for $5!!!!!  I was so excited!  I love old scrappy quilts!  My husband said they are ugly, but I don't agree!  One is a four patch and one is a bow tie quilt.
Here's the four patch, they are both hand quilted.  Of course the cats love them!  I haven't washed them yet in these pictures.

 Muffin's favorite spot is under the quilt rack.
I'm pretty sure this is a bowtie.  I love the colors!  It is really stained on the back, I got most of them out, hanging them on the clothesline, the sun did wonders on the stains!

 I love the borders!
I also got a lot of sewing stuff, and wooden spools!  All for $9!

 I don't know what the blue thing is for, or the long fingernail clippers, but they were in grab bags.
There were also parts to make a porcelain doll.
 Pippi even got something!

I also found a sheet for the back of my quilt, isn't it perfect?  $1!
Here is some more of the stuff I got!  The tea set is my sister's birthday present!

Here are the quilts all washed and put on the quilt rack!
Thanks for letting me share!  Friday is the last day to enter my giveaway, you can go here to enter!
Since my cats were so excited about my shopping trip (did I mention that Muffin tried to eat something off the quilt and my husband had to chase him down to see what it was?) I thought I would share this post at Sarah's Feline Friday Linky Party.

OMG - I would think you planned the dresdens for that sheet if I didn't know any better. Lots of goodies there and it's nice of the kids to approve all your purchases :)

You found some great deals!

WOW! What great finds! I'm catching up here but great finds are great any time you get around to looking at them. Four-patches are my favorite thing to make so I'd have to disagree with your husband that that quilt is ugly. I would have bought it too! Enjoy all your goodies!
