~Thrifting~

Hey guys! Mom and I went thrifting the other day and I wanted to show you what I got. We have some neat little stores around here we like to hit when we can. I found this cute little iron bird nest candle holder for $2.oo. Isn't it cute?!
Mom saw these pretty little jars for $4.oo each. They have an oriental look to them. I love a touch of oriental in a room!

I really scored when I bought 12 of these books for $1.00 each! They are really nice and in great shape. I took a picture of all my bookcases, but when I looked at them on the computer they look too cluttered! I think I need to edit...I'll post them soon.
I sold all of the arrangements I posted yesterday, but will be making more and posting them tomorrow. Thank you for your purchases! Have a great Wednesday!!

You found some great things! It's amazing what you can get for a small amount of money if you take the time to look.

I had the pieces that went with the little ginger jars you showed. They were given to me as a gift when I bought a new sofa and love seat in 1980. That might give you an idea as to the age of your ginger jars. I loved this pattern and it went so well with my furniture... which is now all dusty and in storage.
Thanks for the memories!

Great finds, Kristen! I love the nest you found. The base reminds me of a clock I bought recently at Pier 1 {with a little bird perched on the branch stand}. I really have to go this weekend and see what is in my thrift stores.
