Thrifty Finds

Today I hit the mother load of estate sales!

wow!! i'd say you really got all the good stuff before we got there! :) i'm really jealous of the napkin holder and the embroidery hoops. I'm ALWAYS on the lookout for hoops and can't ever seem to find any at thrift or estate sales! good hunting! oh, and i don't usually care too much about wanting old suitcases but that one is GORGEOUS!
