Thrifty Finds, Hobby Lobby & Spray Paint

It's that favorite time of the week again: Today's Thrifty Treasures hosted by Rhoda at Southern Hospitality. You will find the most fabulous things ever at super-duper prices. The participants really know how to spot the deals.


Hobby Lobby is having an irresistable 80% off sale. Some things were even more than 80% off. I am featuring the great buys that I found there yesterday.


Why are frames always so expensive? Probably because the manufacturers know that everyone needs them. When I find a good deal I snatch them up. I like this French Postcard design.


Emmett likes to watch me spray paint from his favorite observation rock in the backyard. Not bad! I like the French theme.




Tres jolie toothbrush holder was only $1! The original price was 9.99. I needed one of these for the kid's bathroom.



Fleur de Lis shelves for $2 each at Hobby Lobby look much better in Heirloom White. I have a new love and admiration for Heirloom White Spray Paint by Krylon. Pretty much every thrifty find from the last couple of weeks are now Heirloom White.
Ewwww, reminds me of smoky mirror decor



I wouldn't have paid 18.00 each for these; no way. For 1.80 each, I will figure out a place for them; I'm thinking a black and white vignette...



I bought 2 of these for this price and they are nice as is, but, I am a spray painting maniac. I can't be stopped!




2 minutes after I got them home,they looked like this.


The Princess House Crystal Candle Holders that I bought for $2 each at the Habitat for Humanity thrift store, have left the 90's behind and now look like this.


I forgot to grab some candles. Pink or Mint will look pretty.

I think I need to go to YOUR Hobby Lobby, because mine didn't have anything nice like that there! I went last week when others were showing what they found there. Ah well, your makeovers turned out great, and your pretty kitty is doing a wonderful job supervising!
