It's that time again, Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality is hosting Today's Thrifty Treasures (my favorite) and everyone is joining in to share their fabulous finds! Can I just say this...I Love Rhoda's "Today's Thrifty Treasures"! I love sharing the great treasures I got and seeing every one's great finds!! It makes my heart beat faster to see all of us finding items we can use to make our houses homier, our chores easier and sometimes just make us smile. Thanks Rhoda for allowing us all so much fun!!
On Saturday, I decided to have a yard sale to get rid of some of my "stuff" that was overtaking my garage / work space. And being the true thrifty shopper that I am, I took a very small portion of the money I earned from my sale and went to the thrift store! Here is what I got.......
Two books, The Nanny Diaries & Rebecca Wells "The Ya Ya's in Bloom" LOVE this book, $1 each. Remember my two little white birds from last week? This week I found the cute little cage thingy for them .99 cents :) And for .49 cents a new soap dish for my kitchen sponge.
Framed tile with word "Family" $1.49. I'm going to paint the frame black.
Remember the two set of square plates I got a couple of weeks ago??? One set was a burgundy red color and the other was green?......wellllllll I found these two adorable leaf plates that match exactly!!! for..... are you ready for this? .59 cents each! Yeah! (Happy Dance) I see a beautiful fall holiday table scape in the making :) Also, a cute little picture for my kitchen, I will paint the frame black also.
Here is a close up of this sweet little plate. Lovin' it!
Last, but not least is two, yes two beautiful decorating books....Country Living's 750 "Great Ideas for Decorating on a BUDGET" (definitely a book for me) originally $24.95, I paid $2.99!! And, Better Homes & Garden's "Style on a BUDGET" (another book that definitely had my name on it) Original price $14.99, I paid $1.49!!!
And this beautiful golden wooden thingy...I have no clue what it is, but I couldn't resist it's beauty and at $2.00 I brought it home. It has a lid on top that is removable, but there is a solid top directly under that????? I'll figure out something to do with it :)
How was your shopping?? Go on over to Rhoda's and tells us all about the great treasures you found :)
