The weekend was good..

I was on a short mini break to Zeeland last weekend.
and of course i had to visit some thriftstores
And boy...not without succes!

A horse and carriage in black cross-stitch
Het straatje van Vermeer
(the little street by Vermeer)
I'm sure Heleen can use this for one of her bags

Another beautiful cross- stitch
the woman who embroidered this signed with her name
and date of birth (i think) also in cross-stitch

i found a few little pieces
I gave them a little wash.

And this one is my favorite catch...
a gorgeous embroidered tablecloth.

So, not a bad huh!
have a lovely day.

  1. Oh, I enjoyed every one of your finds. The table cloth is catch-your-breath gorgeous! :)

  2. Oh how much fun you must have in your thrift stores! You always find the best treasures. :0) Have a great week. Hugs. Trish

  3. O,wat vinden jullie toch altijd leuke spullen. Ik kan er wel is "jaloers" op worden. Het tafelkleed is geweldig en de kleine borduurtjes zijn leuk om in een quilt te verwerken.
    Toppie jullie vondsten.
    Fijne week, Evelyne

  4. What wonderful thrifty finds! The needlepoint pictures will make amazing bags, and the flowery tablecloth is gorgeous!

  5. they are all real treasures..hand stitched and then abandoned but now they have a loving home..

  6. Wat een heerlijke vondsten!! Ben helemaal weg van je tafelkleed!! Heerlijk he, in een andere omgeving op zoek naar Krinloopjes...oeoe, wat hou ik daar van!

  7. Why do so many Dutch people abandon these beautiful embroideries and tapestries? You girls are so good to be rescuing them and making them into something new! Well done.

  8. Goede vangst!! Waar was je in Zeeland? (waar zijn zulke leuke winkels te vinden?)

  9. Wow what wonderful finds, that tablecloth is delicious!


Thank you :)
Groeten, Heleen en Corry
