~~~Recent Thrifting FINDS~~~

Hey Sweet Chic Friends!

It's that thrill of the hunt!
A giddy feeling you get when you spy that
oh so wonderful treasure...

Yep, I think many of us can relate to this!
I love seeing other bloggers share their
many treasured finds!

Would you like to see some recent treasures
I have found?

I collect vintage Purses and this one reeeeeally caught my eye!
Some creative person took a lovely purse and made it even
better...if you look close, a needle point piece
has been overlayed on top of the front side of this purse...
then it was embellished with velvet leaves and really
cool bead work! Snagged this jewel for $5!!!

LOOK at this shelf!!!!
I am seeing this all done up in creamy whites!
A real steal...$5

Then I spied these ceramic roses on a wire!
NEVER have I seen anything like these before...hmmm
I have loads of ideas of how these can be used!

Of course, you all know I have a *thang* for roses.
These papered style roses were all the rage in the late 80's
and I have seen many in pinks but have not seen them in blues...
but I knew just what I'd do with these pretties!

LOVE, LUV, LURVE the shape of this jar!
Sweetie for $3!!!

See, I have already put it to good usage!
I have so many unwound ribbons and need a place to put them
so I can see know I am soooooo visual.
Gotta have my pretty things so I can see them! lol

So... remember the blue roses?

I added a little tulle and then hung it from the top
of my lovely dresser mirror!
Loving how it looks now!

There you have it...isn't this fun?
I sure thinks so!

Thanks for stopping by!

I use to have one of the cabinet things. I bought it in 1981 from Home Interiors and it was expensive back then (about $40). You got a great deal! LOVE IT!
