Repost - This weekend's Thrifty Treasures

I'm reposting the Thrifty Treasures I picked up this weekend so I can participate in Rhoda's "Today's Thrifty Treasures". Did you get some great deals this weekend? Want to share them with everyone? Head on over to Rhoda's Southern Hospitality and share them with all of us. Be sure to check out all the treasures everyone else found :)

From the yard sale on friday, this cute floral arrangment in a galvanized pail. I will be replacing the purple flowers with some new ones.

The bowl on the left will get a new coat of paint, love the little pig with the hammered metal ears. And the two metal brackets are for the antique door project.

Close up of pig. I spent $20 total on all of these items. A little more than I wanted to spend. . . . .but I love each piece.

The next few pictures are the items I picked up at a sale on saturday. I paid $5 for all of this!!!

The 3 arm candle sconce I will paint, love the vintage glass lazy susan. The green swan is a "USA" pottery piece in perfect condition and the 3 yellow cabbage pattern footed dishes will look great in a tablescape.

Close up of bowls. Aren't they too stinkin cute???

My favorite find.......and only cost $1 . . . . Woo Hoo!!!

Made in the 1940's by the Swanee company.

Another fun find was the vintage justice scales with the original crystals, the scales are missing, but for $2 I figured the crystals were worth more than that :) And the cake cover, which is missing the plate. . . . .I'm sure I have something that will work. I am going to replace the knob with a vintage glass knob :)

Cute ornate pink "frenchy" looking covered box.

White serving dish. . . . . .can never have too many dishes :)

Total for saturday's treasures:

Candle Sconce .25
Glass Lazy Susan .50
3 footed bowls .75
Swan vase 1.00
Pink box .50
Scales 2.00
Cake cover FREE

TOTAL $ 5.00 Woo Hoo!!

Until Later,

  18. Hi Toni
    Hope you had a happy 4th of July!
    Your finds are fabulous. I LOVE your swan vase and that candle light is really nice. I wish I could find one like that...there is so much you can do with it. Oh my.

    The leaf bowls are a great buy too. Don't you sometimes wonder why people get rid of such fabulous things...and then so cheap...they might as well be giving them away. I really enjoy garage sales and thrifting!!

    One never knows wht one will find...
    have a lovely evening and come by and visit again....


My door is always open & I hope you will come by often to visit, maybe have a cup of coffee or tea with me. ~Hugs, Toni~
