Thrift Store Tuesday

Well, we are into day 5 of rainy weather so my projects are going nowhere (paint is involved in a few, sunlight is required for photos of others).  So, I thought I would share some thrift store finds I have had recently.

My son just loved this little chair (only $1.99!).  I am a sucker for a chair and it is in great condition. I am not even sure if I will recover the seat.  The red vinyl looks kind of cute for now.  I will remove the stickers and freshen up the wood though.  It is a folding chair and Jughead loves to show everyone how it works.

I needed a small mirror in our entry way and I liked the shape of this faux bamboo frame (99c).  It is getting a coat of paint (this is one of my half done projects) before it gets hung up.

I found this white painted timber paper sorter that fits scrapbook size paper as well ($8 - very solid and heavy).

I love white plant pots and this was looking really grubby in the thrift store (79c) but I liked the shape of it and it cleaned up just like new.  You can't see in these photos but it has a faint wine barrel pattern to it.  I bought some moss to cover the dirt of my plant and the kids just had to 'populate' it. They love doing that.  Anybody else have a million squinkies around??  I am not even sure if that is what they are called.  I am pretty sure this one is a cheap knockoff from one of those little bubblegum type vending machines.  I have a rooster and a penguin sitting on my kitchen windowsill too.

I found this coat rack for $3!  There is nothing wrong with it that I can work out and it is now hanging on the wall right where we come in from the garage - perfect!  Blessed be those who save me from a paint job I say.  I am going to cut out some pretty scrapbook papers for the label holders.

So, that is my haul over the last month or so.  I also grabbed some vintage buttons, more embroidery hoops and some sheets (cheap fabric).  I have a project coming up with one of the sheets so, once sunlight graces us with her presence again, I will show you.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

Very quick post to share some exquisiteness.  Sigh, aren't these just so gorgeous??  My dear husband bought them for me last night.  Peonies are my favourite flowers but I have never had a bunch and I just love them....

I have a whole host of projects coming up over the next week.  I just need some light to take some photos (raining here today) then I am all over it...  Hope you are all looking forward to a great weekend!
