Welcome Everyone, I’m so glad you’re visiting today. I can’t wait to share this week’s finds with you as it was a pretty large and eclectic haul with mostly practical finds. So let’s get started.
First up, I found these three simple black frames with glass for $1.50 each. They hold an 8 x 10 photo. I’ve been collecting this type of frame so I can do a display on our Italian vacation. I have almost enough now so it’s time to really go through the pictures and choose. Such a fun task but definitely a difficult one as their are so many choices.
The great wicker framed blackboard is going to replace a much simpler one in my kitchen. I loved the soft grays and muted tones. It fits perfectly so you’ll see it soon.
Thrift Stores are great places to pick up practical things for crafting. Two packages of pine stems for Christmas and some 22 gauge wire went into the basket. The stems sell for $10/pkg. on line and these were $1 each. The wire was 75 cents.
These pillar candles, brand new and matching, were $1 each. I already have a vignette in mind for them for my daughter’s new apartment.
Found some cool linens as well. The first is a runner backed in white with a great red and white plaid and two tassels at each end. Love the casual look of this one. Next were some pristine beautifully worked napkins and, finally, two really nice dish towels. The total was around $5.
This cute little wire basket was 75 cents. I have a little collection going now that will make a sweet display.
It’s such fun to find great pillows for just a little bit of money. the Christmas ones are in super shape and the medium-sized fabric pumpkin was 75 cents. I think they will work well this holiday season.
Lastly, a few odds and bobs; two lovely glasses, two Ball containers that I will use to make and freeze pesto and a nice heavy duty picture/plate holder.
That’s it for today. Hope you enjoyed your visit and good luck finding treasures on your next thrifting adventure.
