Hi everyone! I'm totally surprised by the response to this months book giveaway! I want to thank everyone for entering and know that I appreciate all your lovely comments. I will continue to do a monthly book give away as long as I can. Sometimes they will be new books and sometimes they will be from my collection or thriftstore. But they will always be about frugality, simple living, and homemaking. I will announce the winner of this months give away on Tuesday morning so there is still time to enter if you haven't done so already.
I thought I'd share some thriftstore finds that I've found in the past few months that I plan to use this Christmas. I don't know about your thriftstore, but mine has an aisle for Christmas items all year round!
I found this two red velvet pillows yesterday! I had been wanting red velvet pillows for my living room for Christmas (although I wanted larger ones to put on my couch) but these will work too! Who knows, I may still find big ones! The tags inside the pillow covers say Banana Republic - most have been a special promotion since I don't think they normally carry any housewares?
Isn't that frame beautiful! I bought it for the frame. It doesn't have any hanging apparatus in the back so maybe it's tray? Anyway, I think I'll do something different in the center. The center part is glass.
I had to buy this lime green tree with the harlequins! I use lime green in my Christmas decorating and at $4.37 it was a good buy!
I've been collecting pretty mini teacups as I see them at Goodwill and these are my latest two. Last Christmas I made this china tree for my dining room.
I liked it so much that I'm going to do it again this year! I'm going to glue the cups to the saucers so I can hang them on the tree.
Those are just some of the things I've found at thriftstores this year that I'll use for Christmas!
I hope you all have had a great weekend and have a lovely week to come! Thanks so much for stopping by!
