Thrifty McLovin

Posted by Picasa
As I scoured my garage finding items to donate for our lacrosse team fundraiser garage sale, it only made sense to buy more stuff to fill those empty spots.  Just kidding, these are some new finds from my thrift store expeditions starting from upper right: wood fall potpourri $2 came with pumpkin basket that I'm currently trying to spray paint white.  I already owned the orange glass purse vase .90 on clearance at Michaels'.  Red/white/blue checked Pier One tablecloth $4, Restoration Hardware sugar canister $2 (for my powdered sugar), small green transferware plate $1 & center two shallow glass plates $1 each.  I got these for the good o'l cream cheese with jalapeno jelly on top appetizer.  My good friend Julie gave me some home grown peppers this weekend and I chopped them up and they are ready to go into a jelly recipe.  The thrift stores are starting to put out their holiday items, you should go check it out.  I found myself getting rid of holiday items I bought and never used and finding items that I always wanted but maybe couldn't afford at full price are a bargain now.  Fall might be on it's way now, not sure yet we got fooled last week.  Cheers!

  1. You've got some great buys there. I know what you mean about filling up those empty spaces. STuff, can't live with it, can't live without it, or can we?
