Link Party No. 75!

I seriously cannot believe that Thanksgiving is next week! I am going to take a break from link party next week and instead, I am going to have a "TRH Thanksgiving giveaway"!

The past couple of years I did a Thanksgiving giveaway, and I asked you guys to leave a comment of what you are thankful for. It was so nice to read all your comments and be in a thankful mood for Thanksgiving. I wanted to have the post ready a week before Thanksgiving; then announce the winner on Thanksgiving Day. Not this year though... All the medical mumbo-jumbo totally threw me off and I didn't plan it very well.

So, what I am going to do this year is, I will post the giveaway post on the 23rd, and run it until the 29th, then announce the winner on 30th. I will ask you to leave a comment telling us what you are thankful for, of course! So think about some blessings, a situation, things, or people in your life.

I went into a thrift store the other day before picking the kids up from school. I just had to peek in to see what they got. B.i.n.g.o! I found a couple vintage sheets in mint condition (how mint? They were still in the original package!).


That is really hard to come by, and I love the design on the fabric. Unlike pastel color vintage sheets I always find, this one has a more unique color scheme. A little Amy Butler-ish, I would say. That is why I can't stop going to these stores, I never know what is there and waiting for me.



I have so many ideas that I want to do with it, but I really need to finish this one quilt I started with vintage sheets several month ago, before I can start a new one.

Ok, it's your turn everyone, what do you have to show us this week? Link up and have fun!

1. Please post something YOU made. It doesn't matter if it is crochet, quilt, clothing, anything would be fine. I want to see it! If you use someone's idea or patterns please give them the rightful credit.

2. Link to your specific post, that way it is easier for everybody to find and read it.

3. Please grab the "Tea Rose Home" grab button, and link back from your post. If you can mention the party in your post or place the button on your side bar, that would be great! I want more people to have a chance to come and show off their creation.

  17. It is so funny to hear that some of you recognize the sheets from your past. :)

    Jessica--

    There are several thrift stores in my area, DI and Savers. Savers has their 99 cents or 50% off day by color of the tags, and they are great. I have found such amazing things in the past (ah...do you mind me saying longerberger basket?). It is totally addicting.
