Nifty Thrift Picks of the Week (7.08.08)

Sharing my weekly faves from the Nifty Thrift flickr group where people post pics of their nifty thrifty finds:

I love thrifting needlepoint and embroidery art. In fact, the image on my blog banner of the little squirrel playing the flute on that crazy tree is actually a large piece of needlepoint art that I thrifted for Clover's room (which is actually only a corner of our office, we call it "Clover's Corner"). This reminds me that I've wanted to do a post on this type of thrifted art for months but I can't seem to tear myself away from the style posts. I'll try harder...

Anywhoo, I'd love to come across these three lovely specimens in a thrift store! Ballerinas, birdies, and mushrooms... Oh my!

I like all of them! I picked up a pair of mushroom pieces today myself. I can rarely resist the embroidered stuff!
