Pretty Crib Linens--Put to Use for Girl Camping


On a recent visit to our small-town thrift store, I came upon a donated bag of crib linens. I have no one in a crib to buy for. But the color scheme, with pinks, browns and cream,  matches that of a trailer I'm working on, so I took a closer look.

'It's 4-buck-a-bag day,' said the counter volunteer, in an encouraging tone.


The set included a crib-sized dust ruffle. Eureka--that size is a perfect fit for the top of a 4-foot folding table--a utilitarian item that's standard in my Girl Camping gear due to its many uses.



The hand-crocheted afghan--surely made with love--gives the tabletop a warm, pretty top layer, and can be used for personal cozy-up use as well.





The crib set's quilt, a machine-made item from Martha Stewart, will make a perfect topper for the bed inside the trailer.


And, the set's coordinating laundry bag can hang inside a closet to store towels and other linens.

You just never know where inspiration might strike, and I've now added 'children's section' to my itinerary on thriftiquing ventures!

  3. That's what I luv about "Thriftiquing" it encourage us to think outside the box... or in this case... outside the bag! Lol!
