A few Goodwill and Michaels Finds...



It's Thrifty Treasure time over  at Rhodas from Southern Hospitality!! Go and check out everyones finds for the week after your done here!



I made a trip to Michaels and Goodwill! Two of my favorite stores! Michaels had TONS of clearance! Even alot of stuff in their dollar isle was clearance at half off, I a few little things...



I got these for .49 a piece, I was very excited to find cheap paper lanterns as I have been wanting some for a project.




These premade garland banner things are cute and I got a few, they were marked down to .49, These are nice to add on to another or redo.




If you use sponge brushes, Michaels has the small ones 20 for $1 right now, today is the last day of the sale and this is an awesome price for these! They are pretty much all I use and are great when you have a small project and need one you can just toss after.




They had lots of cute paper ( yea like I needed more paper ), stickers, and little words on clearance. The words are great repainted and glittered, or decoupaged with pretty paper. I think wish will be cute framed and prettied up for some Christmas decor ( yeahhhhhh Christmas!!! ).




Then at goodwill I found this curtain for a french door and was needing a new one and this matches perfectly!!! I love it! It was marked $6.99 but she charged me half so it must have been on sale.




I got this little metal tray to redo. Cleaned up I actually like it pink, but I have no pink here so I will probably have to repaint it.




I got these little glass domes for .99 each, they will be perfect on some chunky candle things I have with a little pumpkin or something underneath them.




My grandma Jean is in town visiting for a couple of months or so and she loves to garage sale when she is here. She found this for me to use in my crap craft room for paints or something. I love it! I will paint it and make it pretty.




She also brought me this cute little kitchen sign which I like as is. It's white and distressed with black showing through! Thanks Grams!!



So what are your plans for this weekend? The pumpkin festival is going on here in town and we might go there tomorrow, not sure. We have TONS to do at home! I am on a mission this weekend to finish lots of unfinished projects! My gramma wants to come help me organize my craft room this week, so I have to organize before we can organize, make sense? If you saw it, it would.


Have a Great one and don't forget to enter my latest giveaway here!!

Went to Michaels yesterday and today ...all the little brushes were gone, except for 3 which I got for 5 cents each. But I did find mega rolls of ribbons in their clearance section! Baby shower tomorrow ... made my first diaper cake! Will be sure to post a picture tomorrow. Have a great weekend.

Ack, I wish ours had some of those lanterns left! I got some a year ago for DD's birthday party, and would like to now hang them from her ceiling, but I only have 3.

I stocked up on the brushes, too.

I'm wondering...does your neat table have a label on it anywhere? It reminds me of Heywood Wakefield, and if so, might be worth more if you don't paint it. Just a thought!

Adrienne said...

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

I LOVE that your grandma likes to yard sale. That is awesome!! :) Great buys at Michaels...I got some of the faux pumpkins at 50% off earlier this week. :) Visiting from Rhoda's party. :)

What a cute little table- it looks as if it will hold more than a few crafting supplies. Those domes were a nice bargain- mini cloches!
