Thrifted Treasures

Oooh-weee, I've been finding some great finds recently! I've been hitting up every thrift store we pass here lately. Lucky for me, that super wonderful husband of mine is always game!

My first find is this great little floral tray. I almost never go down the "plastics" aisle of thrift stores but that day I did!

It almost looks like a fabric was mod podged on to the tray but I can't be for certain. It was a steal at 99 cents and it's currently living in the living room.

Next up is this cute little cane tissue holder. It too was only 99 cents and I scooped it right up.

I had plans to maybe spray paint it but I also really like the natural state, as well. I was inspired by Miss. Camila to turn it into a planter after reading this post!

Oh, and p.s. those are my very first peony blooms from my side garden!! They make me so happy that they finally bloomed after three or so years.

My super great find of the week was this trio of books! I was immediately drawn to their great geometric covers and I was even crazier about their bold hues found in the inside cover.

Photobucket

I was lucky that the day I bought them they were having a "three for $3.00" sale! Woohoo! I've spotted some more on Etsy and eBay {if you're interested : )}.

Have I told you how much I adore thrifting? It is truly my hobby now and I couldn't be any happier.

That floral tray is similar to one I saw on the CWE house tour. We def. need to check out the Brown Elephant while we're in Chi-town.

I love your finds! Ive gotten some great finds myself lately but havent felt like blogging much as Ive been really sick. Soon, soon...
Oh and I won a custom pillow cover that made me think of you. Again, I'll post about it soon.
And now I shall sign off since this sounds like an advertisement for my blog. Totally unintended.
Buenos Dias!

Oh man I saw those books at our Goodwill Outlet, where hardback books are just 50 cents. There were 10 of them and I KICK MYSELF every day for not buying them!!
