I'm back with my second installment of Thrifty Thursday!
I have a little routine on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I take my youngest to his speech therapy class then on the way home we stop at one or two thrift stores...just in case there is something I can't live without. Today was no exception and I did find some goodies.
First up I got three pieces of milk glass. I love milk glass and have a small collection which slowly grows with my thrift store finds. You find it very reasonably priced in thrift stores. Today I got 3 pieces...
The heart bowl was $2.99 which I think may be the most I've paid for a piece, but it was just so lovely, how could I say no?! The vase in the middle was 99 cents and the vase on the end was 50 cents! Can you say bargain?!
Next up I got these 2 hoops for 25 cents a piece. I love the look I've seen on some blogs where they just put a favorite piece of fabric in them and hang them on the wall as art, so that is exactly what I plan to do. I'm thinking that I might even paint them, just so they will 'pop' more.
And lastly I bought this sweet pillowcase for $2.
I fell in love with the pretty embroidery and knowing how long something like that would take to make myself, it was well worth the money. Plus when I held it to my nose to smell it, it was like it had just come from my mother's linen closet. That well-worn but clean smell. It took me straight back to my parent's home, and good memories.
I have been busy on some projects plus bought some new fabric, so stay tuned for my next post to see what I've been up to!
