Thrifting Goodies

After being stuck in the house so long with the flu, it was so nice to get out again. Yesterday I went wild and hit four stores in our area, of course, today I am resting;) I thought you might like to see some of the goodies I got.

I found the wire basket at the home store, love using them around the house and filling them with prims. Then I hit a consignment store and found a fun sewing firkin with my favorite subject, a kitty. And they also had a cast iron cat door stop to add to my collection.



This was my lucky store of the day, I also found the prim candle keep with 4 grubby candles.



At the salvation army I found a candle board, needs sanding and stain, but a nice find.



And I had to get this, because it was cute and only 50 cents.



In another consignment, I found a nice wall basket, this is a larger one and it has a painted frame on the front, I took that off.
It will be perfect with a nice punched piece on it. So, I had a good day thrifting and now I need to paint my hallway and start redecorating that area with some of my new goodies.

WoolenSails said...

The wooden item is a candle holder. You hang it from a peg rack. Need to have my husband build me one this week after he paints the wall, that I want to use;)
