Mom's loss is your gain. Good for you!! Looks like a lot of pink things are you partial to pink? LOL I think that's what I would have had to go for the pink with all my girlies.
I'm regressing back into my youth, I just have to figure out how I'm going to convience my body to come along with me.

Fun for you! See, you didn't jinx yourself at all. All that pink for the girlie girls.

I can see you've come by your addiction honestly! :re:

Wow, what a haul!! Lucky you! My MIL works at a thrift shop and occasionally comes home with a stash of good stuff for me. Mostly large pieces for toddler outfits, but why not?

Hey Carol is all that quilt fabric? What a haul!!! My dh is always telling my friends they can come shopping in my sewing room for fabric and notions. NOT!!! I love my stashes. I'm in withdrawal right now -- I haven't sewn anything this week except the hem in a pair of pants for dh.
