Victoria has really found some great deals lately and I was the recipient of two of them.
She found a pair of Pottery Barn curtains for $10 at Goodwill recently. Because I am very indecisive and can't decide if I want to put them in my son's bedroom or mine, they are still in a bag. Isn't that sad. Oops, I have stored the bag somewhere and can't put my hands on it at this moment. I'll show them to you all sometime. They are a great floor length drape in basic khaki color.
I had been wanting an umbrella stand for my patio table. They are so expensive! We found one at Aldi, and though not really pretty, it does the job. Vic called me recently and said she found one at a yard sale---the word fluer de lis was mentioned and that was all it took. Oh, and the $3.00 price tag. Wow! In the end she took everything she was buying to the lady and I think she ended up only paying $2.00 for it. Even better.
I found this flour sack at a garage sale about a month ago. 75 cents!!
At a friends yard sale I recently picked up these perfectly good muck boots for $1.00!!! Her son had used them once and they had been sitting around in the way in their garage.
My parents have a swampy place in the woods that the kiddos love to go to. Turtles, mud and the possibility of snakes abound. These tall boots will be great for adventures to the swamp and though there have not been snakes seen there yet, my dad did kill a copperhead in his yard. Yay, boots that offer a little bit of protection and can easily be hosed off.
Go on over and visit Holly at Homebody and Leigh at Tales from Bloggeritaville. Holly is back with Thrift Store Thursdays---yay!
and Leigh always has some fun going on with Thifty Thursdays!
Oh and if you haven't been over to Holly's blog lately, please check out some fantastic projects that she did when her sisters were in town recently here and here. Sisters are the best, aren't they??? You know we love sisters here at As Time Goes By.: )
