Salvaged Stash: A Rescued Paula Vaughan

The second article in the Salvaged Stash series, I talk about a professional-framed Paula Vaughan finished piece that I rescued from a consignment shop, where the owners mentioned the piece was going to be thrown out if no one bought it, as per the consignor’s instructions. This is the number one article on the blog and written as a part of the Save The Stash From The Trash campaign.

Salvaged Stash: Cross Stitch Pillow Cases

The first article in the Salvaged Stash series, I discuss how I found hand-stitched pillow cases being used to wrap up dirty glassware at a thrift store I used to work at, and how I rescued them. I was able to save a set to use as pillow cases, but I had to re-stitch the second kit. This article was written as a part of the Save The Stash From The Trash campaign.
