Thrifty Treasures



I skipped blogging last week because nothing happened here. It's too hot for anything to happen. Yesterday it was 111 degrees at 7:30 pm! It has been over 100 for three straight weeks, or maybe even a month now, I've lost count. Last week I did nothing, but this coming week is going to be crazy. I am a hostess at a baby shower, have a wedding shower ( no it's not a shotgun wedding, it's two different girls), playing Bunco one night, and if that wasn't enough, last week I decided to sign up to do a craft/art show.



Here is my loot from my thrift store excursion from last week that will be getting quick makeovers for the show...



I picked up the candle holders at a goodwill store, and had the bowls in my stash. I'll hopefully get these done tonight so I can show you pics....

This little folding chair I rescued from the trash. At one time it had a back rest, but it was broken off. Other than that it was in good shape. Nothing against Dora the Explorer, but I like polka dots better....

I'm exhausted just reading what you have going on! The little folding chair turned out adorable. I love the blue trunk that's peeking out under all the candleholders too!

I am a thrifty person, but I would have probably thrown that little chair away too. You saw a new life in it!
