Thrifty Thursday

Hello Peeps!

Its been a LONG time since I’ve posted a Thrifty Thursday. A long, long time. April 28th was the last one. Being the queen of thrifting… I am disappointed to say the summer was pretty bad here at our goodwill's. I didn’t have a lot of good buys to share. So for all that time I was gone, 4 months, this is what I got.

A nice oil lamp.


A very very heavy spice box. missing a knob… but it’s ok. I’ll find a make-do.


A washboard. This is a gift for a friend. :)


A very pretty tea towel.


A masher, two adorable blue bowls and a set of strainers or mini shooflys.


The bowls are so cute.


This is a really cool pewter hurricane lamp base I need to find a globe to fit it. It’s an odd size and none of the globes I have fit it.


A stacked set of Pineapple bowls. Really nice.


This was my best summer find. $9.99. I love it.



Hope you enjoyed this summers thrifty Thursday.

Until next time…

I think you found some wonderful goodies. Maybe the good finds are on a decline because we have so many treasure hunters these days..

Glad your back to blogging!

I have to say it's been slim pickins around here too. The summer started out with a couple good flea markets and then it seemed I was looking at the same stuff over and over again. I like the spice box . . . but I'm wondering how does one knob go missing. Does it fall off and someone doesn't know how to screw it back on and throw the box away?

And I LOVE that lamp!
