Last week I had so much fun participating with Linda at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays, that I decided to hunt around my house for more thrifty finds! Not much of a challenge~the real challenge was how to just pick a few items for this week!
This chalkboard was purchased a few years back at a garage sale for $15. It's been so much fun playing with it! It stands by my front door and I change it depending on the season or occasion. Since I am having my Open House this Friday and Saturday~it will greet visitors!
The basket and letters underneath are all thrift store or flea market finds. My other "S" is in there too.
The enamelware pitcher was a garage sale finds years ago. The apothecary jar was a recent garage sale find for $5. It was across the street from Drama Queen's school and since they were having the sale on a Friday~I was a little late picking her up from school! Opps! I made the tag and added the eggs (TJMaxx). The cooler is a recent thrift store find. Can I just say that I love it! It was one of those times when I bought it and had no idea where I would put it. I even thought about selling it! After Mr. Smith painted the kitchen I knew that it would be perfect on top of my kitchen cabinet. Oh how much did I buy it for? Glad you asked! I tell you a little secret~if you don't already know. I donated some items to the Salvation Army and they give you a receipt. Well on the bottom of that receipt is a coupon for 10 % off. So the cooler was $10 but with my coupon it only cost me $9! Shhhh~Don't go tell everyone!
Boy Wonder wanted a globe so I found this one at a thrift store for $5. Love the blue color on it. I stole it! From Boy Wonder that is! It was perfect to go in my kitchen. Sorry! Not really!
Thanks for visiting!
