Thrifty Finds!


Firstly, a BIG hello and welcome to all my new followers!  I'm thrilled you will be joining me on my creative and thrifty adventures.  Don't forget to leave a comment when you drop by.  I love reading them and they inspire me to keep creating. :)

Now back to this weekend's thrifty finds. I found some great treasures at the yard sales.  I wasn't planning on venturing out, but I'm glad I did now. :)

I got the brown wooden planter box which I intend to paint white and put something lovely inside.

I also got 3 very old bread baking metal tins.  Aren't they amazing!  I have no idea what I am going to do with them yet.  

What treasures have you found this weekend?

  1. I picked up 1 metal baking tin like that yesterday too - I love the patina on old pans! You got some great finds!

  2. I got a great big stuffed black primitive crow, 20", and great for fall decorating, $5. And, as a road side kill, I saved a Singer 185J in super condition and two long decorative shelves for the kids clubhouse. The shelves had trim, brackets, and all. I am going to paint them and display vintage toys on them. One of them was from the windshield of the suburban to the back window. The other one was probably 60". Score!
