thrifting and a new collection

after my rant a few posts ago about people's hard work ending up in thrift store - it seems i have a new collection beginning. the local thrift store in town marked everything half off today and it was a mad house. lines 50 people long waiting to get in, my car about to get towed, people pushing and shoving, it was nuts!

i scored these 2 embroidery pieces and just might start collecting more to hang on a blank wall in my hall bath. i received some advice on cleaning them, so after they get a very gentle wash and dry, i will see about re-stretching them.
