Today's Thrifty Treasures....

I am once again joining Rhoda's Thrift Treasure Monday!
I have missed the last few because of vacation and then catching up so I'm back!
Right before I left for vacation, I just had to stop in Good Will. I think I am addicted, really. ha.
Below is the total things I found and the total was $4.25!
A close up of a few things. I just love that oval frame (.50!) but plan on painting it. The clear thing is a napkin holder and used it for a family cookout at my house the following weekend. The candle holder will get a paint job too. Are you noticing that red 'planter' or container? Want to see more?
Well, here you go. I love this thing and it was $1!. It will probably get a paint job but loved the shape and accents.
And who can resist $1.50 shoes for a little angel girl. She fell in love w/ these but the other day they gave her blisters on BOTH her feet.....and I think she's done with them. :(
I didn't get this at Good Will, but did get it at TJ Maxx on clearance for $7. Have been wanting one but didn't want to pay full price. There are a few at Stein Mart I am keeping an eye on too.
Thanks for stopping in...and please head over to Rhoda's link party and see many more great ideas! I just love Mondays!

Hi Reid,
I am sorry I did not use hammered bronze on the birdcage , I used:
Krylon Oil Rubbed Bronze - I got mine at Wally World....hope that helps you out. I also used it on my Come to the Light , Met monday a couple of weeks ago - take a look at the same color there....
Have fun,

Love that big apothecary jar with the lemons in it! I can never pass those up, and you got it at a great price! I love that I can always get one at Marshalls or TJ Maxx!

I love the red metal container! I got something similar and I use it in my guest bathroom to hold rolled up guest towels.
