Thrifty Finds

I didn't go to any sales this past weekend, but here are a few of my recent yard sale finds.
collage picture frame - $2
silver tray - $1
ceramic pear ($16.99 Steinmart tag on back) - $1
lime green charger plate - $1
2 small trays - $1




I have a TON of stuff I need to paint and transform. Do you? I am always looking for inspiration on what to do with this stuff. I had a wonderful 4th of July weekend and I hope you did too! Happy Monday!

Great goodies
Can't wait to see what you do with them!

Anita said...

Nice finds...I too have some recent items that I have not yet decided exactly what I want to do. Not all need to be 'changed' but some sprucing up is definetly required for a few. Have fun!

Gwen said...

I have tons of stuff sitting around, awaiting transformation. You are not the only one!

I like your finds. That frame is so neat!

I'm excited to get back to being creative this summer. I keep finding things in my home that I want to paint and give new life too. I love those trays!

I have more things sitting in the "waiting" pile than in the "finished" pile. Looks like you got some cute things with lots of potential!

Oh yes, I always have way more things to transform than I will ever get to.

You found some great things. Happy Monday!

Angie said...

I guess I just don't hit the sales enough! You always seem to find the cutest stuff. But I've told myself, no more purchases until I finish some other projects! Discipline Ang! (I'm one to talk LOL)Have a great week!

Angie said...

Thanks for the encouragement. I believe I'll get it done today. I like the look of plain scrapbook paper in the panes, so I'm headed to the scrapbook store to find some I like. It's hard to quit something you love, like yard saling and thrifting. I don't do it very much, so it's easy for me to be DISCIPLINED. But I do get these big ideas and buy this stuff for a project, then procrastinate and never get it done. Do you use any of your finds for crafty gifts for Christmas or for friends? I'd be a way to get rid of some of your "stuff." But maybe the question is, do you really want to?

Lise said...

Can't wait to see what you do! I so need a pear like that!

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

Oh girl...I am right there with you. I have WAY too many things waiting to be pretty-fied!

LOVE that huge pear you got for $1... What a deal!

Kelly said...

I want that silver tray and I love that green charger. I'm gonna steal those! ha ha

Angie said...

I mentioned you in my recent post about my finished windows. Stop by and take a look. Let me know what you think.

Hey Angie! I just got a few dumpster diving finds for myself. All I had to do was to walk to my mailbox. My next door neighbor was moving out and he cleaned out his whole house. I ended up with three book cases and one "dough table!"
I am still working on the large book case for my laundry room.

When we moved into our new house we need to fix an existing kitchen cabinet. These guys had an exact match! Amazing. . .
