I Found Some Finds

Thank you so much for all of your suggestions of
what I could giveaway!
It seems that the overwhelming response is the monogram burlap or a chalkboard. Both were made with frames I bought at the thrift store.
So that meant only one thing. . . .
I HAD to go thrift shopping!
(Thanks for the excuse, by the way!)
I must report that I did NOT have any luck finding any wonderful frames. It seems that when I go thrifting with a specific item in mind, it usually takes more than one trip to find it.
Is that what happens to you too?
But I did find some other goodies. Actually, I found a whole cart full of treasures, but I had to narrow it down to those few items that seemed to take my breath away and make my heart skip a beat when I saw them.
I just can't seem to pass up a beautiful footed silver tray, a lovely aged basket, a fluffy, textured down pillow, my favorite cream colored pottery, and a bouquet of realistic faux tulips.

I do have a Plan B for the frames. I'll tell you in a few days.

It's always so hard to narrow it down, isn't it? Such fun finds. :)

Sunshine said...

That always seems to happen with just about anything when you're looking for it! But it looks like you've found some other great finds!

I just love the tray and white bowl, you lucky girl.

I tell my family that all the time. You can't go thrift shopping with something specific in mind. Because they are always saying they can't ever find what they want.

Becky said...

Wouldn't it be fun if we could just send you all the frames we had hiding in our basements or attics? Your mailbox would becomes your new treasure spot.

The same thing always happens to me. The latest and greatest thing I've seen is usually on my mind when out on the hunt, but that's not usually what I find. Looks like you had a very, very rewarding day!

Great finds! Love the pottery!

When I have something in mind it usually takes a while to find it too. But I have found that waiting is it's own reward. Right now I am on the outlook for 2 super cheap but quality sisal rugs. I kow they will show up soon!
