Week-End Finds

I'm not sure if it's me, but my thrift store outings have been kind of lame lately.  I'm not finding much these days.  This below is another bench. I am not bench obsessed, I promise.  My friend saw my bench post and asked me to help salvage this. I happily agreed. I'll be working on it this week. I'm thinking some darker stain and a fun fabric.  Let's see what I find at Joann's.
These rolls of tulle were $0.50 each. I'll probably use them for an Easter wreath for my door. 
I'll be picking a winner for my Target Gift card Giveaway by 6:00 p.m. this evening. 
Hurry and enter!

My treasure hunts have been pretty lame also. I stopped at the Goodwill the other day and was blown away at how [high] their prices were, considering... But it's hit or miss with them stores right?

Once you make your Easter wreath, youll have to show how it turned out! :)

We haven't had any luck with trift store shopping either. Something in the water? Maybe people are inspired to keep all their stuff now with so many great ideas at the ready :0)

Mine has been the same. So excited for 1/2 price Good Will Friday and there was nothing!! I had gone the day before and there was this wonderful elephant lamp that I was going to get - but it was gone the next day. Sigh.

Great finds! Isn't it funny how you're not trying to find certain things yet there they are? I went through a tray thing last year. EVERYWHERE! Can't wait to see what you do w/ your treasures :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking time to leave a comment! I'm glad you liked the post. I'm definitely not an experienced napkin-folder myself. I'm pretty sure that was my first "real" napkin fold, and it really was easy. By the way, your yellow roses were beautiful! Have a good week.

I find my thrifting success goes in spurts as well. Sometimes it is like a flood and others a desert. Ah well, at least it helps to keep clutter (and the wallet) under control  Love that bench…lots of fun potential!

You and I are stuck on benches!....I like that one you are helping your friend with..Try Fabric Guru, sometimes they have some great fabric at good prices!

Good finds come and go, but it definitely makes your next find that much more of a treasure!!! Happy Hunting! :) B
