Time to show off our thrifted treasures and join in with Holly at Homebody for Thrift Store Thursday,
and Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday.
The chalkboard above was $1.51 at Goodwill ... who has enough chalkboards???
I mentioned that we had a yard sale two weeks ago at my in-laws and their neighbor decided to have one as well. Of course I had to head on over and check out what she had!
I was instantly drawn to this picture but not as much to the $10 price tag. At the end of the day she walked over to see how we had done and I asked her if she still had the picture. She did and she took $5 for it!
I actually gave it to one of my sisters to hang in her bedroom but if she doesn't hang it by July 1st, I might get it back and try it in my living room. ;)
Now, I'm off to the mountains for the weekend!
I also have a few finds to show this week.
I paid $2.00 for this little box/shelf/whatever it is. It has a tortoise shell look to the bamboo and wicker. It would also be pretty painted white. Mmmmm.
My taste in art is very broad. I love traditional and contemporary. I found this very contemporary piece at a yard sale for $5.00. My son (almost 13) wants this in his room. I'm still deciding.
Here you see my more traditional side. Paid $5.00 for this traditional landscape. It has beautiful colors and such a calm scene. It is dirty and dusty, but will clean up nice. I will probably paint the frame or at the very least make it darker.
Yet another in my broad range of art taste. An old black and white photograph found at a yard sale. My hubby and I actually found this during our first year of marriage at an estate sale---some old, old, fun stuff. It has been put up for a long time and forgotten about. You can see some of the others that we found that same day in this post. I am a huge black and white photography fan. I remember clearly getting my first Ansel Adams calendar when I was around the age of 14.
My sister in law gave me two magazine subscriptions for Christmas and today was a magazine day!!! I love the idea of a fresh, thick magazine waiting for me at the end of the day. Does this count as a thrift find??----They were a gift so, I didn't have to pay for them. Thanks, Michelle!!!!
Off to look at some of your Thrifty finds! Happy Thursday.
