Hi everyone! My friend Rhoda has started up her thrifting/yardsale linky party again. This is always a fun one, as people find the most amazing things. Be sure to check out all the other participants - Southern Hospitality Today's Thrifty Treasures.
I went to two thriftstores on my birthday and really found some wonderful things for my home. The glass bird with the nest in the lower right corner has a hole on the top. I guess I’m to fill it with something?
3 prints of different types of grasses. I’ll put these in my downstairs bathroom as that room has some botanical prints.
This beautiful red jar still has the Ross tags on it. I’m going to have to paint that top – gold doesn’t work for me.
I got these cute vintage trays at a different thriftstore. These would look so pretty hanging on a wall if you didn’t want to use them as trays.
I was so excited to find this bag of trim!! Look at all this.
There are 7 yards of the blue trim. I doubt I will ever use that purple cording though!
8 yards of this beautiful lace trim!
My favorite find was this brand new glider at Goodwill! That’s actually what I told my husband I wanted for my birthday! We had been pricing them at several places.
It was $99 including the cushion (which is the same pattern I have in my screened porch)! The cushion alone costs about $40 at Home Depot and the glider is $149 there. They had quite a few new patio pieces that day at Goodwill. They had the matching lounge chair and bar height table and chairs for example. I don't know where they get their brand new merchandise from or why.
This is what I did with the decanter and 4 glasses I found. I added them to the decanters that I have on this bureau.
I recently took down my burlap heart wreath. So I made this coffee filter wreath the other day. I really like look of layering something on top of a mirror.
Thanks for stopping by to see my thriftstore finds. I’m really lucky that I have excellent thriftstores as I don’t go to yardsales!
Have a wonderful week!
