Recycling last week's post in doing so, but after all, this blog is partially ABOUT recycling!
First I want to say hello and welcome to my new followers. So, Hello and Welcome To My New Followers! Seriously, there are almost
I. Am. So. Excited.
Wanna know why? Well - do you?? Okay, I stopped by a little thrift store this morning. I cannot BELIEVE that I have never been there before. Oh. My. Goodness.
I should have known what to expect, being the
I scored the following: One white SUPER heavy and fat vase (dying for a coat of paint), Two black wrought iron candlesick holders, One heavy silver pedastal, One brown wood chunky candlestick holder, Two lengths of fabric, and One other thing. Not sure what to call it. I am gonna pretty the bunch of them up. AND, I'm gonna show you how.
But first, today's finds...........
Bad lighting, sorry....
See all those white stickers?? Those are price tags. They say things like 35 cents. 1.00. 50 cents. You get the idea...
This is a planter of some sort. I have no idea yet what I'm going to do with it, but I loved it's shape.
Yup - it's "A Genuine Old Thing".
Here's a pretty pewter candlestick holder (which will never be pewter color again once I have my way with it)
Another holder or pedastal - this time wood
Honest to goodness dust and everything. She SO wants to be pretty again. You can just tell.
Another planter or vase. Again, I love the size and shape
50 cents. I could probably even bargain with this poor woman who owns the store too - I feel like going back with a wagon and loading up. I might even see if she wants to come home with me someday and just pretend to be my grandmother for a while. She's just that cute.
I think these two cuties would look nice dressed for Fall.
Now, how's all that for a Cheap Frill!?
I called this post Thrifty Thursday, and it actually gives me a really good idea. Each Thursday (beginning whenver I can actually figure out how to use links and whatnot) I will be hosting an online Thrifty Thursday party. Link up and share your most recent, or most favoritest ( it's my blog and I can use bad grammer if I want to) thrifty find!
A fun way for you girls (and guys) to show of your own treasures. Very good exposure for your blogs or stores too, plus just a great way to meet new friends.
Stay tuned - I have great plans for my old junk....
Smiles and Hugs,
