Nifty Thrifty Tuesday

Well I must say that I love it when I feel I have found a treasure! My first little treasure that I have found that I am sharing with you was this Wooden Bowl. I spotted it at GW and thought it looked like it needed a home. For a mere $2 I brought it home but as you can see it was $19.99 at Target. Looks lovely on top of my Jelly Cabinet in my kitchen. 


Yes, as you will see I love wooden bowls. Found another one I really LOVE that sits on my counter in kitchen and as of right now it hold hubbies debbie cakes! The bowl was beautiful to me and heavy. Also another Target item. I found this one at a Consignment shop for $4.


I really don't know what I am going to do just now with this lovely lamp! Found it at GW for $2.99. I loved it. So elegant looking. I am headed in the direction of creating a candle holder out of it and taking the lighting socket off the top. When I do that project I will be sure to post about it. I


Found this beautiful mirror at a good old fashion yard sale for $1. Love the shape and the color!

And last but not least one of my little treasures was a "Princess House" piece for $1.99 at GW. Yep, don't look like much but it has great potential. I can already see a centerpiece being made! 


I've linked up with Linda from for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays. Go check her out! Amazing thrifty finds!


  1. Thanks for visiting me. I can definitely see the lamp as a candle holder. I also love wooden pieces. The bowl in my banner picture is an antique bread bowl, and I just love it.

  10. That lamp is so neat looking..almost like it wants to be a chandelier. I would have grabbed that little mirror, too..I may have a mirror and lamp addiction now that I think about it. :-)
