Many of you know that one of my favorite hobbies is to scour thrift stores for hidden treasures.
This past week I was able to indulge in this fun activity.
Here are a few of my finds.
I paid $1.98 for the bird house thingy. I paid another $1.98 for the cheese dome, .98 cents for the purple candle holder, and $2.98 for the cute purse. The purse was new with the store tags still attached. I can't even buy handles to make my own purse for $2.98!!
I gave the cheese dome and the candle holder a good scrubbing and 3 coats of Heirloom white spray paint. Then I glued the cheese dome bottom to the candle holder.
I placed it beside a tall, chunky candle stick from Pottery Barn that I topped with an antique plate and a cheese dome I already owned. I placed a few pretty sea shells in them both. It makes a nice arrangement on my sideboard.
I'm not sure what this is. It could be a bird house or a terrarium. I removed the glass pieces that were held in with bendable tabs. Then, I spray painted it with my favorite new spray paint, Heirloom White. After cleaning the glass pieces, I replaced them within the tabs and placed it on my back porch.
I'm always looking for glass containers to store my dry goods in. These, in cobalt blue (swoon. . . ) caught my eye. I already have them filled with grains and placed them in the pantry.
