This One's for Mom

The difficult thing about living far away from home (well, ONE of the many difficult things about living away) is that I can't show Mom all the fun things that I pick up at garage sales or score at Hobby Lobby. So....this post is for you, Mom! Here's a little sampling of the recent thrifty goodness that I've gotten!!


I got this great little basket for 50 cents; a wooden charger for another 50 cents; lots of great chapter books for Camille as well as some teaching resources for me - all 10 or 50 cents each; a Southern Livng at Home metal planter for $1; a SLAH cream plate for 50 cents; and two gorgeous glittery Easter bunnies for $2. woo hoo!! I picked up a few other little odds & ends, but these made it to the "photo shoot."


Cool candlestick thingies - $6.50 for the pair

Ginormous clock for $13 - the baby is there to make you oooh and ahhh and to show scale ;)

Finial thing for $2, the acorn thing I already had.
The carved circle thingy is about 15" and was just $5.
Not totally crazy about this arrangement, so don't judge....

working from the left....

Little bunny with some ivy on his back - $2 from Goodwill with a fresh coat of ivory spray paint. Bless his little bunny heart. He was the most ridiculous shade of brown when I brought him home.

The tall finial vase looking thing has a leather-like finish and was $2.

The cream & blue plate has a ruffled edge and was $1 at Goodwill.

And,'s a pic of those rockin' pillowcases I picked up at the thrift store.

A set of 2 for $3 - woo hoo!! These babies are destined to become dresses for my little lovelies.

Man! I've been having such fun finding some new treasures and fixing them up! I've got a few more projects up my sleeve that I'll share with you soon!
