Thrifty Finds and Metamorphosis Monday!

Gotta love Monday's just for these!
Please stop on over at Rhoda's to see some thrifty treasures and Susan's to see Metamorphosis Monday.

I picked up a few new items Friday but more on those later.
Remember this picture? I posted a little about it here. It is a canvas.

I got it at GW for $1 and originally thought I would paint the frame but once I did the chalk board, I loved the rustic look of the wood frame against the black chalk board. Here it is in it's new home. I can see that this piece will be all over my house.

This is one of my finds from Friday's stop at His House. I squealed with excitement!
And not only because of my new found interest in glass stopper bottles, but this one had 'Lavoris' on it! Not sure of value, but thought it was neat and you just don't see these anymore. Anyone know??
(sorry the picture is poor--I just couldn't get a good picture of it, showing 'Lavoris').

Here it is in it's new home, right beside my other finds from His House a few weeks ago!
(I put peppercorns in there for now, but thinking of an infused oil)

Thanks for stopping in...and don't forget to check out more Thrifty Treasure's at Rhoda's and Metamorphosis Monday ideas at Susan's.
