It was a quiet week thrift store wise for me. I have been dealing with some health stuff that makes me too tired to venture out from the house much.
On Thursday I got a surprise though. A box of books that I won on Gather.com came. There is something that I shouldn’t admit here, but I will. I love reading more than I love decorating. So I was doing a happy dance when I opened the box to find these. Thank you Gather.
I did sneak out yesterday to take advantage of a sale at Ace Hardware. Say hello to my little friend, Mr. Stapler/Nailer. We have already met and conquered our first ottoman.
He also came home with a friend, Mr. Super Dooper Glue Gun. I got both for 50% off, so that counts as thrifty in my book.
Of course there were a couple of garage sales that were
sort of on my way home. The one that I stopped at had 6 beautiful Australian Shepherds. I wish that I had taken the camera, they were stunning. I am glad that I left Murphy Grace at home though, because they were NOT friendly.
I spent two dollars and brought home these beauties.
The best find was one that, believe it or not, I spied while sitting on my bed feeling crappy. I live on a rise and the sliding glass door in my bedroom gives me a cool bird’s eye view of the street and my neighbor’s yards. I like watching the world go while snuggled in bed. They can’t see me, but I can see much of what goes on. (okay, I swear I mean that in a not creepy way!)
Yesterday I spied the neighbor struggling to bring this out to near their trash cans……
It needs some major love, but Art
hates dislikes his current desk and this will be perfect. It is big too, 33 X 60 and I just know that it is going to look great! I love the lines of it and it has drawers just like he wanted.
That is it for me and my thrifty treasures. Every week, I feel like I have nothing until I sit down and try to put this together. Every week, I am surprised by all of the things that I and everyone else comes up with.
Make sure you visit Rhoda at Southern Hospitality and check out all of the thrifty finds.
