Just a Few Thrifty Finds!
Hello everyone! How is your day going so far? As I sit here typing this post, I am listening to one of my favorite sounds in the world....the rain falling on my tin roof and the occasional clap of thunder. Just a few minutes ago, there was an Earth shaking boom! Startled me and my nephew Riley just a little! It has me wanting to nap, but I decided against it since I wanted to blog. When I finish, I need to get up and clean and catch up on laundry!
So, today is just a short post in which I am sharing a few finds from yesterday. I am trying to cut back on my thrifting and have been pretty successful, but I did have to pop in my favorite consignment yesterday while running errands.
First thing I spotted was this little lighthouse decoration.
The lighthouse itself is ok, but I loved the little life preservers stacked on it. Aren't they cute? I am thinking of making a garland or wreath with them. Not sure though....what do you think? There are three navy and three red! I only gave $2 for it....not bad!
I also found a few books! I love books and this is one thing I can always find a home for. This like new copy of The Alchemist was just $1. It sounds like a very good book and it is a quick read!
I loved the cover of this book....Between, Georgia. It is about a town in Georgia named Between and the folks who live there. For $1.50, I thought I'd add it to one of my bookshelves.
This decorating book is missing its jacket, but it was just $1.50, so it came home with me too. I like the title....Creating The Not So Big House. Perfect for me!
And just when I was about to leave the book section to check out, this little beauty caught my eye!
It was just $1.50 as well.....no way I was leaving this in the store!
What a perfect cookbook to display for the summer in my kitchen! The colors were just perfect in my kitchen...:) Happy colors!
Well folks....that's it! Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate each and every one of you!
Oh...if you have any ideas for the little life preservers, please leave me a comment!
Until next time.....
