Troll and tunes ~
How could I resist this jeweled belly button troll ($1) at Cameron Park Snowline Hospital Thrift Shop? I splurged for tunes in the Hairspray CD, Patti Page's Greatest Hits and Earl 'Fatha' Hines and his Orchestra - Harlem Lament. I have no idea if Earl and his buddies are any good, but it will be fun discovering so. The embroidery in the background is a pillowcase border hand-stitched by my mom.
Friday night I had some time to kill before I met a friend at Zelda's Pizza in Sacramento, so it was a quick trip to Eco Thrift. Scored a Liz Clairborne sleeveless knit top (.99), a George ME sleeveless knit top (.99) and a JKLA black stretch skirt with sequin detailing ($2.99). Bought a bag of what I thought were fabric remnants (.99) but turned out to be placements, a few hand cross-stitched. These items will be utilized as backgrounds in future posts.
