Useful Things

Useful things, discovered at thrift stores are what I am featuring today. First up, colorful thread on wooden spools , nestled onto a Disneyland (!) plate. I was pretty tickled when I found that plate!
"Specially hand made by", Rose, Dorothy, Grace, etc. - sweet little woven labels:
Adjustable straps for your unmentionables:
Don't want to worry about your bra straps showing? How about some vintage "Lingerie Guards" to help you out?
Rayon and satin blanket binding. I think I actually have a vintage blanket or two that could use some new binding!
And round elastic cord - now, I am certain I can find a use for this as well!
I always pick up little things like these at thrift shops. You just never know what you might find when you really take the time to look!

An interesting collection. Congrats on finding a Disneyland plate. I know a Betty and a Dorothy if you are trying to find people for your labels! Love T

Love the Disney plate! What a find! And the handmade by labels are exactly like the ones my mother used for the afgans she knitted!!
