Finally Found a Vera Ladybug

Finally, finally, I found a Vera Ladybug scarf - and I didn't even know I had it!  We were away over the weekend, of course, that means, new thrifting opportunities - I wasn't disappointed!  The Salvation Army had a small rack of scarves, when I see Vera, I fold the name underneath - like the cashier is really going to change the price!!!  I guess that's why I didn't see the ladybug!  I found this 100% silk Echo scarf there too, don't hate me - I paid $1 for each one!

These silk scarves are so hard to do anything with, I don't want to damage them, that's why they may look a bit wrinkly.  I found these two scarves by Norene Procter at Value Village, I googled Ms. Procter, she is a Canadian artist from Calgary, she handpaints silk scarves, banners and framed artwork, each silk is individually painted and signed by Ms. Procter.  These are beautiful scarves.   The flower one was priced at $2.99, the buffalo print was $4.99, I questioned the pricing at the cash and walked out of there with each one costing me $2.99.   I've never heard of her before, have you???

It's Monday again, so linking up with Flea Market Finds and Apron Thrift Girl

  3. Great finds! Love the Vera and Norene Procter does beautiful work. At one point I owned a little Vera scarf - gotta see if it is still in my closet.
