Thrifty Treasures

Today I am joining Rhoda at Southern Hospitality for Today's Thrifty Treasures. I am going to go ahead and warn you that you might get a teensy bit jealous of the awesome finds I scored Sat. at yard sales. It was a great day! I spent a total of $9.75 on all the stuff below. Let me break it down for you just 'cause I am so proud.
* bunny tray - $2
* toile platter - $1
* 5 pillows - $3.50
* basket - $1
* lamp - 50 cents
* candleholder - $1
* metal pitcher - 25 cents
* 4 wood finials - 50 cents





I about squealed when I saw the bunny tray. I hung it in my dining room when I got home. It's my favorite thing I found on Saturday. I saw a cute antique single bed for $15 and I could kick myself for not buying it. It was painted black and just adorable. I am seriously thinking about going back to the house and asking the lady if she still has it. I have a single bed in my guest bedroom/office now instead of a double so I need it. Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend and will have a great Monday!

Wow you did well. Some fun cute finds. I hadn't been over to your blog for awhile so I had to drop in. You find great things garage saling. I saw some this weekend but was really good, trying to save money, so I resisted.
Your open shelf in the kitchen is darling too.
Enjoy your treasures!

Yes, I'm VERY VERY jealous! I love that tray! You know I have three trays like that with different scenes on them and this would make such a nice addition to my collection. I like symmetry - hint hint. LOL! The plate is gorgeous - again would look really great in my house also the pillows! Heh, everything would work so well for me! Must be why I love your blog so much - I could see myself living in your home!

Great finds Angie! I'm happy for you...really! LOL!

For goodness sakes - you LUCKY girl!!! Those pillows for 3.50 - that's amazing. You did a fantastic job looking for deals!!
I actually went to a few yard sales this week - but didn't hit the jackpot like you - I think I need to come visit you. We'd be good junkin' partners!! Have a blessed weekend. Cathy
