free stuff i've found

*****
My friend Mary pointed me in the direction of this wonderful little blog called Heirloom Paperie. She designs paper products that you can purchase, download and print. She features Free Template Tuesday! This one came yesterday! How cute are these little labels? (click on the image to go get the PDF)

Fabric.com has FREE shipping on orders over $35. They have one of the best selections of Amy Butler fabric I've found. And there is almost always a coupon to use. I may or may not have ordered some more Amy Butler fabric yesterday. And then I may or may not have found another site, Quilt Art, (thanks Quilt Dad!) that is having a 50% off sale on EVERYTHING, including pattern books. That means 5$/yard for designer prints! Let's just say I'm looking forward to the mail . . .

While on a little drive to get out of the house for a few minutes I saw this out in front of someone's house.

With this price tag on it.

It's now joined the other misfits in my garage waiting to be sanded and prettied up! I needed a new sewing table and had one picked out at IKEA - I just saved $100!!

I won a pattern giveaway on the FreeSpirit Fabrics blog! This came in my mail yesterday:

My friend Robyn has a blog called The Grotto where she posts all sorts of fun things, like giveaways and product reviews!



It's nice out today, I'd better go dust the sander off!!

Aww, thanks for mentioning me and my blog. The chairs and table are a GREAT find and I know that you will be able to do something great with them. I think I am going to go download some cute spring labels...

If I saw those chairs for free I'd have swaped them up too! Oooh...can one buy that pattern on the Free Spirit blog? I've got to check that out...it is such a cute toy to make!

First off, thanks for the tip on the material. Second, that table set is great! A can of spray paint will make all the difference. Love finding things like that. Thanks for stopping by my blog for the giveaway!

Noo...seriously free! That is awesome!!! Gotta love spring when people get antsy to change things! :)
I saw a living room table on the curb and had to resist it the other night because I have no where to put it!!! I can't wait to see what you do with it!!! Congrats on your great find!!!
