Fabric Finds and then Some

I don't live that close to a Joann's anymore, so whenever i have a chance to go i am sure to take it. This past weekend i made it to one about 45 minutes from home and i was so glad that i did. They had several fabrics that i knew i could give a good home to. More of the goldfinches...those pears and lemons i love! And I found some Heather Ross horse and riding fabric(thought of you Quincy)....joann's never has nice stuff like this. **There was also some of her matroishka fabric so run don't walk to Joann's and check out their fat quarter bundles.
I am also always on the lookout for vintage glassware with glass lids, and i have not had much luck with that. I am trying and have been trying for some time to phase out the plastic around here. Not as easy as i thought it would be. But Martha Stewart....I love to hate her!! This glass storage ware is from kmart/martha. The absolute last place i think to go to get something, but whenever i do go i find something great like this and wonder why i don't think to go there first. I wanted you to see it Colleen...i love it.

Now I have to go to stupid KMart and I hate that place! But I love those dishes. It's time to clean out the crappy plastic. I'm using the crate and barrel dishes and they make me happy.
You fabric is awesome... all of it, but the girls are partial to the horse fabric. Why didn't you buy any of the matrioshka fabric?
