Before Photos of Thrifty Finds!


Look at this CUTE basket! I'm trying to decide whether or not to paint it...and I'm thinkin' turquoise would look great on it!



Can't you just see it? Apple green, turquoise or orange...What do you think?


I also found a cute little turquoise glass bottle. It was cheap-o, and has a cute shape. I'll look for more to make a little grouping of them somewhere.


Here's another little mirror for 87c.  I buy them whenever I find them and paint them. I love big walls of mirror collages, and mixing them in with photos. It's like another "photo" when someone looks in a mirror.


I kind of wavered a bit on this one - I can fill it with my mother of pearl buttons or something if I don't use it as a cloche. What do you think? Is this a little awkward, or might it work with a different saucer?


And last, a more functional item. This Fire King loaf pan was $1.91. I'll bet this one won't explode in the oven!



I'd really like to hear from you - that way it almost feels like we went shopping together! But we didn't have to  flip a coin to see who got the loaf pan. :)


Proverbs 11:16


16 A kindhearted woman gains respect, 
   but ruthless men gain only wealth.



May you enjoy the respect of those whom you respect!

The turquoise bottle jumped out at me. What a find! I've just started collecting blue or green bottles and love them in a grouping.
I'm your newest follower and hope you'll stop by for a visit.
