I know I’ve been a little “absent” from the blogging world lately…..
have you noticed?
I HOPE SO!!!!!
Actually, I miss it terribly and have no plans to fall to the wayside anytime soon but I’ve taken on a new adventure!!!
I’m volunteering at the local military thrift shop and……
I LOVE IT!!!!
The only hard part is finding time to fit it all in……..and not spending too much money!!!
I think I’m their best customer!!!!
That’s okay…..it’s for a wonderful cause!!!
So, I’m trying to organize my time better and will get my act together soon….
I thought I’d show you a few “treasures” I’ve found at the thrift shop.
I picked up this guy for $15!! He holds our towels when we’re in the hot tub!
This flower-pot was $10! It’s huge and very heavy!!
Here is a bamboo bird house. I added three faux candles with timers. It’s very pretty at night!!
This little brass hanger was .50!!
This is a beautiful ornate candle holder and bird in brass. I think they set me back $5!!
I love the detail!!!
Here is a crystal ashtray but I think I’ll set candy in it!
Finally, for today, I picked up a couple of lamps! You can never have too many lamps, I say!!
This one is crystal with a brass bottom. The sticker on the glass said “Poland”. I believe I paid $15!
This cute little telephone lamp is whimsical and fun!
I honestly don’t know if I can shop regular retail anymore!!!!! I love a bargain and repurposing things!
How about you? Do you love thrifting?
I have more treasures to share but that’s for another day!!
Until next time……
