My Thrifty Thursday Finds

This week, I'm participating for the first time in 'Thrifty Thursday', hosted by Leigh over at Tales from Bloggeritaville (

Basically, it's a way for bloggers to share their finds each week and see what some other thrifty shoppers have been finding.

Below are a few of my recent finds...

I have to say I know the 'soon to be hubby' isn't going to like this mirror. But I love it! It's handpainted and seems to have that old world charm, that I like so much. He on the other hand, likes modern and contemporary, so usually I have to carefully place items in the house that are my style and try not to draw much attention to it. Well, I hung this today in the downstairs bathroom, he will notice most likely by this evening. And if he hates it, I will find a new home for it. But what a steal at $1.99! Seriously, less than 2 dollars?!
For .89 I just couldn't pass up this 30 year old kaleidoscope. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it.
I found these two white shelves for $1.99 each and had been looking for something like them for a while. Hopefully I will have them hung by the end of the week and will share some more photos of them.

And last, but not least I found this charming box in perfect condition for .89. I am sucker for anything I can use to organize stuff, boxes, baskets, containers, tins, etc. I especially like things with lids!
Thanks for visiting!

Great finds! I got that mirror at the thrift for 3 bucks. Mine is more of a yellow/gold color. LOVE it! Thanks for linking up to Thrifty Thursday this week!
