Recent "Thrifty" Finds

You know how much I love to show you my finds! So, here we go again - I LOVE my kitty cat pencil holder, and here you also see a cute little floral cream and sugar set and a nice green pillar candle holder:

A great chippy shabby cubbyhole shelf - easy for me to fill up with little stuff!

Vintage mushroom shelf liner, a hand painted peanuts snack bowl, and a trivet with a cool geometric design:
A pink speckled Brusche platter, a pair of Swanky Swigs, and two pretty tins. The rose tin doesn't have the right lid, but the lid IS at least vintage, and for 50 cents, I fell in love with it anyway:
The hangers were marked 5 cents apiece, but when I checked my receipt I saw that the nice man at the thrift store had only charged me 5 cents for all five! The blue floral fabric appears to be a remnant from an unused sheet - and a lovely one at that!

It is just so darned much fun to find VERY inexpensive little treasures, isn't it?
My favorite pastime.

It's the "inexpensive little treasures" that can mean the most.

I love that shabby chic cubbyhole shelf with all the little pitchers, statues, etc. That is a cool way to display...

Wow, I am always soooo jealous of you folks who can find such treasures at such low prices.

I used to be able to do that around here, and Mom and I would tour all the local thrift stores as often as we could. It was such fun!

You found so many fun things! I love that creamer and sugar bowl and that pink(!) platter. I'm so drawn to pink lately. And that cubby is amazing! I can't wait to watch you fill it up with all of your great finds!
