I was totally shocked and surprised to see that Rhoda at Southern Hospitality is again hosting Thrifty Treasure parties on Mondays. I didn’t think it would come back and I was sorry about that. When I entered this world of blogging, Rhoda’s Meme was the first one I participated in and it quickly became a favorite. I still am a thrifting maniac so I am excited to be back and I am excited that Rhoda’s party is back! Thanks, Rhoda, for making my day!
The vase below was found at the Salvation Army Thrift Store. It is a sweet and spring-vase and is a Laura Ashley design. I don’t know anything about it, how old it is, what collection it is from. It was really dirty, like some flowers rotted inside and then the vase was stored away without being cleaned. It cleaned up quite nicely, thank goodness! For 3.00, it was a pretty good deal.
I found 3 pillows at the Goodwill near my home. I love the shabby flower design and the faded colors. Normally, I don’t boy things like, well, pillows because I am afraid of what could be lurking inside. These, however, were pristine and the fabric is top quality. I sniffed them really hard. Other shoppers steered clear of the crazy lady holding pillows in front of her face, sniffing and turning them every direction. Crazy Lady paid $2 each.
I found this tulip print at the same Goodwill. It was still covered in plastic and attached to the cardboard backing that keeps it from bending. The black frame is one I already had. The print was $1.99.
So, I did pretty well. 10.99 for some sweet pieces that I really like and will put to good use.
Thanks for stopping by and go visit Rhoda for a complete list of participants in Monday’s Thrifty Treasures~ Wooohoooooo!
