Woo Hoo! Great Thrifty Finds

Here you see just an overall "great stash".Except for two pieces I will save till last. My favorite!


The wooden sconces reminded me of some I used to have and got rid of years ago. I decided I needed another set...$2 each from GW. My plan right now is to repaint and use on my front porch with candles. Maybe that will entice me to sit on my front porch more!
 Yellow Cloth napkins. You know I am having a lemonade party on the front porch in May for a few young moms and my colors are blue, yellow and white. Already had some yellow cloth napkins but not quite enough. Found the perfect color at a Thrift Store and a great price 7 for $1.95.
 And I found this ice bucket a little different. As you can see the outside of the bucket is clear. My mind was going 100 mph....I already have an idea to make this icebucket unique when I use it for my lemonade party! I will post that later. But...it was $1.95--Thrift Store

And I found a sleigh! Here it is fixing to be Spring and I found a sleigh! But it is so stinking cute and for $2.95 I couldn't pass it up! It will going next to fireplace for Christmas! 

Not sure what this next piece is called but looks like it was used maybe to hold fruit. I just love it and it has great potential. Plans are to clean it up, sand it, paint it! For $1.99 I thought it to be a nice little piece.
This clock was just sitting there saying, "Take me home, take me home" and for $2.99 I brought him home. I love the rustic colors in this clock and if I don't change my mind and I am bound too (you know how we women are) I plan to use it in the bedroom that my husband calls his hunting room. We're going to re-do that room and its new name will be the "Whitetail Deer Room". So that clock will probably go there. Sharyl got me to looking at clocks after reading her post. Check it out @ http://thelittlebrownhouse.us/?s=clocks
This I found this last piece at a yard sale. A beautiful, big frame for $5. It a little on the heavy side and looks to be aged somewhat. The details on this frame is what caught my eye! I see a complete makeover coming for this sweet piece but my mind is racing to how I really want to display it. 
Thanks for looking at my Thifty Tuesday Stuff!

  5. I want to see what you do with the ice bucket!!!! That frame looks old and I bet at one time it was an expensive piece. Probably still would be in an Antique store! I can't imagine you not putting a picture in it but got a feeling you will come up with something creative! Can't wait to see! Lizzy
