Thrifty Finds!

So I thought it would be fun to start sharing pics of the things found on my thrifting excursions.  It's amazing the wonderful things you can find and for such little cost.  One man's trash is another man's treasure - Yup, that's true :)   Here is my latest haul from Goodwill:

The picture is particularly special to me as it is the same one that hangs in the guest bedroom at my sister's house :)  It was $20.  I'm leaning toward hanging it in the guest bedroom too because it has such a peaceful feel to it but I enjoy looking at it so the family room is also a contender.  What do you think?

It's probably better if I come clean now and tell you that I have an obsession with aqua Ball jars.  I love colored glass and look how gorgeous aqua jars look against the backsplash in the kitchen:

Here's a closer look at the ones I found today.  The tall jar was $2 and the small ones were each $1--oh such joy for $5 ;)  The baking dish was $1 and so was the cross-stitched chicken sampler:

The little duckie is in perfect condition and just in time for Easter :)  He was $1.  The ornament made of resin hydrangeas was $2 and while I'm not 100% sure how to display it, I liked it and decided I would figure it out.  My other weakness is vintage glass - depression, milk, cut, carnival  - I love it all.  So, when I saw the Brody hobnail bud vase for $1 I knew it was coming home with me as was the pedestal vase!

I am looking forward to the weekend.  I will be working on the programs for Rhonda's wedding.  What are you up to?

Happy Thrifting (and Crafting!) ;)

  3. ooOOOooooOOOOH Ball jars!!! sigh!!! Too bad my Goodwill is "Proud of it's things" as my daughter and I say, since their prices are high on Aqua ball jars. They will range from 25.00 to 10.00 and those are for the small ones. What a great haul you have!!!!!!
