Thrift Store Finds

Desk Lamp

A little wooden sewing box.
Dirty, but it will not be when I get through with it.
I paid 1.00 for this! It does have 1 broken leg, but it was just so cute!


I don't know what you call this but I love it. The bowls are removable.
I thought it would be good to put salsa, sour cream, olives, etc. in.
I love it too!


I bought this, not because I needed it or even loved it, but because I have been seeing how everyone is re-doing cutting boards and I want to see if I can do it.

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.....

This is just a little tea light lamp.



Someone had made this out of little slats of wood
and painted it and had a wire to hang it up. I love it too!!!!!

Will be exciting to see the transformation from one life to another...be sure to let us see once you make the re-do.

I often buy things not because I need it, but because so much can be done with it! The possibilities are endless with thrift store finds!
Your items are great finds!

I love thrift stores. Nobody can believe that all my decor is from there...and they fall over when I tell them how little I paid for them.

Hi Valerie
thanks so much for the nice comment you left on my blog. And I am so glad I found your blog through it.

About the 3 cups in the holder, I grew up in NE Texas and the restaurants used those for salad dressing. They always held 1000 Island, Italian and Blue Cheese dressing and the waitress would bring it to the table when you ordered salad.
I think you got a treasure!
