One Fine Spring Day…….

 I just LOVE Spring! I love opening the doors and windows and letting the fresh air in. Pollen has hit pretty hard here already but I had a few chances to get outside with the kiddos before it got too bad. So, you get to see the kids today, instead of crafting/thrifting projects.

My Thrifty Treasures....

I am SO glad all the Thrift parties are back! I haven't stopped thrifting, but haven't been taking pictures of most of my finds until recently (when I knew the parties would be kicking up again). 
I am participating in Bloggeritaville's Thrifty Thursday party

Go check out her site for many more thrifty finds!

Here are a few of my recent ones.

I stopped in the local Good Will and found these items:

Yes, that is an old metal lunch box and was only .70!  I completely fell in love with it and grabbed it up before anyone else could see it.  My husband thinks I am nuts but he has no idea.  I am either going to clean it up and keep it in it's original state, or paint it a bright/bold color.  What do you think?
I also found a cute little bird tray, some tags, and a pair of shoes for my Daughter.  She had a pair of these a few sizes smaller and when she outgrew them, she was sad.  They are her favorite 'Princess shoes' and has yet to go a day without wearing them (no matter WHAT she has on.....sigh).

And here is the inside of the lunch box:

I am thinking someone used it as a planter (which is a thought), or some sort of container (other than lunches).  Regardless, hubby was scared I was going to make him start taking his lunches in it.  men. 

Right next to our GW, is a Kmart.  (I assume you all know what these are, but if not, Kmart is much like Walmart) 
Anyhoo---I stopped in there and found these on clearance for $1.  I have plans for them, but for now they are in my dining room catch all room.

I have so many projects I want to get done it's not even funny.  JI am just glad the weather has been nice here (which has caused me to just sit on the porch and watch the grass grow). 
Thanks for stopping in and please leave me a comment.  I LURVE comments.
Oh, and be sure to tell me what you think I should do w/ the lunchbox.
