Thrifty Treasures

Today I'm joining in on Rhoda @ Southern Hospitality's Thrifty Treasures Monday.


I stopped by goodwill this past week and picked up these treasures:


Wooden Tray- $1.49- I plan on painting this a white & tan zig-zag pattern for our living room coffee table.

2 faux grass plants - $.99 each - The square one of these is going to sit on top of a stack of books in our living room & the rectangular one is going in our kitchen window above the sink.

6 galvanized metal buckets (new from target) - $.29 each - these are for a secret project.. stay tuned.

2 milkglass bottles - $.79 each - I have no idea what I'm going to do with these, but they were just too cute!! Any suggestions?

I'm hoping to get some projects finished up this week before we head off to vacation, but we'll see. Speaking of vacation, I have a fabulous line-up of guest bloggers for while I'm away. I'm sure you'll be excited to hear from them!!

GREAT deals on everything, especially those buckets! Wow! And I have always wanted some of those pots with the fake grass. They look so nice on a mantle... or anywhere!

All nice things! I hope you have a fun vacation & that you'll come back to see me often.

How funny, I picked up one of those little grass planters at my Goodwill last week but didn't end up buying it!
