Another gem!

I also went to a thrift store this weekend just to round out my recycled shopping. It wasn't a hugely successful trip and I found myself picking items up and then abandoning them as I was walking towards the door. Yep, I'm one of THOSE people.

Then I found an item that I kind of fell in love with. The whole time I was carrying it to the register I was asking myself, was I really going to do this? Where the heck was I going to put this? Is this one of those things that I'm going to regret later because it is ugly? I decided it was worth the risk and handed over $5. Now that it is in my house I am happy to say I love it! It's a small quilt/throw made entirely out of vintage polyester fabric. How ugly and fantastic is that?! I threw it on the spare bed and totally love the pop of color. So for now, I am happy with my polyester find!

It definitely is a gem! My sister's godmother made me a baby doll quilt similar to that when I was five. I just loved it! I still have it in storage at my parent's house!
