For the first time, I am partying with Leigh and the others at Bloggaritaville. This is the place to hurry over to and find out the great thrifty deals that have been found.
The sheer toile window panels made me gasp with delight when I saw them hanging amongst the "uglies" at Goodwill. I figured they'd be stained, snagged and/or smelly. I figured wrong. I have become a believer. Thrift stores are a great place to find wonderful things at unbelievable prices.
They are perfect, as is. They are made by Waverly; are my favorite red and white combination and the toile design is a romantic,, vintage-Valentin-y theme. They were only 2.49 each!
The heavy iron candle holder was another Goodwill find. I actually had to decide if I wanted to spend 4.99 on it. If it lasted until Saturday, I could get it for half price. I've played the price-game in the past and have lost, so I broke down and paid full price.
It used to be that common natural brown color with hard melted wax stuck all over it. I scraped it off the best I could. Blasted it with Heirloom White spray paint, and used some dangly crystals that fell off another chandelier that I've had forever. The round red candles were from JoAnn's 75% off Christmas sale; 1.29 each.So, between shopping at Goodwill, JoAnn's and shopping my house, I created a seasonal, updated look for $15 and some change.
