Thrift Store Finds

Only a few finds to show today. I vacillate between staying away from the shops for fear of adding more to my stash, with the sure knowledge that if I don't go, I'll miss out on some spectacular find. I went to 2 stores yesterday and was strong enough to put some things back on the racks that had somehow gotten into my cart. I did however come away with these little items.
My Ebay research informs me that they are Danish silk screen cocktail napkins. Perhaps from the 40s or 50s. I really have no clue, but they looked interesting and were a very nice price.
I finally took home this partial set of books. I had been eying them for months, but with all the info available on the internet, I was reluctant to add these large, heavy books. They were half off, and there really are some lovely quilts to look at, so I finally brought them home with me.
Here are a few of the quilts from the books.
Does this one remind anyone of a current quilt trend??
And a few patterns, which if complete, shall be going into the shop.
See, not too bad at all. I was able to restrain myself. Of course, that could be because I'm waiting for the really big sale on Monday...;)
