Today's thrifty finds!

So the hubs told me to take a little time to myself and go thrifting.....So I did. I was not going to pass that offer up. Time by my self with NO kiddios. That just happens to be a rare occasion for me.



I went to the Goodwill and these are what I found.



It's she lovely. I have always wanted a soup tureen. Did I spell that right? Oh well. I in tend to make her fit into my new decor for my china cabinet. First I need to paint said china cabinet. I will show you all that later. I got her for $5. Score!

So I have been telling the hubs I need/want bed side lamps. And since he has made some bed side tables this was the perfect time to find some. I am not sure if that is where they will end up but, I will find somewhere for them. I paid $1.50 for the cream and $2.00 for the gold. Again another score!


I found two dust ruffles for $3.99 each. I have plans for these. I think I will use the brown and pink one for my daughters room ( next time we move and she can have her own room). The cream and green one I want to use for a little settee I want to make out of a crib that we do not use anymore. There are also 2 pillow covers I got for $.99 each. I like the brown, green and pink together.


Well, those are my find for today. Hope you have fun thrifting this week. Nice weather makes people want to get rid of things so keep your eyes on the look out. Have a great week. I will be linking this to Southern Hospitality Today's thrifty treasures. Go on over and check her out. You will love her!! :O)

    Don'tcha love it when the hubs sends you out with NO kids!? It's just easier to move from one place to another without all that car seat nonsense! Then you come home and they missed you... it's the best!
