Thrift shopping,

Hi everyone,
Love this time of year !
And although it's about the busiest time there's always a litlle moment,

to do some thriftshopping.
And this time I found something special to show you,


A small rug that was framed.

so sweet

My mother said,
 it are little banner images that came with a pack of cigarettes before the war
(around 1940) and people collected them.

from about 1940..

I love how they are sewn together
and wonder
who it could have made ​​and in what circumstances.

This is what I love about thriftshopping!

groetjes Heleen
