I haven't been hanging out at the thrift stores too much lately.
There is a chance that we might be moving and the mister has been saying words like "downsizing", "thinning out", "getting rid of" and "reducing" in regard to our household belongings.
I suppose he thinks because his children are moving out, one by one,
we don't need so much of everything.
So, in an effort to be a good, and supportive wife,
I have been controlling the urge to stop at every Goodwill and/or thrift store that I drive by.
However,I did make a quick little stop the other day. I was bored and had a little time to kill. (excuses, excuses)
I didn't find much, but I did find some fun things!!!
I picked up this little bag full of star shower curtain hangers.
I needed some for our guest bathroom.
I had some hideous plastic rings on the shower curtain and I knew these little babies were the answer!
AND, they were only $2.99!
Some black spray paint and, TAH DAH!!!
See!? Sooooo much better.
And someone, who shall remain nameless, (but has the initials C.C.), didn't even notice.
Same day.....I found these patterns.
I almost missed them.
Had I not bent down to look at something else, I would have missed them entirely.
99 cents a piece.
Can you believe that!?
The best thing about these patterns
is that some of them came with the fabric, thread and other necessities!
Seriously...when I find stuff like this, I get a little giddy.
See how easy it is to finish up a project when someone else does all the preliminary work! :)
These will be so cute in a little bowl for Easter.
Moral of the story-
Find thrifty treasures that are small so that they can be brought into the house virtually undetected.
